Steering the Church Toward Christ-like Character Leadership Guide Download to Print One

  • $12.97

Church leaders, how much attention do you put on steering the Church toward Christ-like character and not mere external conformity?

God's heart for the Church includes that we be "conformed to the image of his Son" (Rom. 8:29). Consequently, we need to shift the focus from merely what we do to who we are, and more specifically, "whose" we are. Let's not give people the impression that the Christian life and Church are about what we do — simply doing the right things.

Order this leadership guide, specifically geared toward church leaders, to do the following:

  • lay the foundation of God's intent for the Church to be His showcase of Christ Jesus
  • understand what it will take to showcase Him
  • run 23 different leadership responsibilities and tasks through the grid of Christ-likeness
