From the Back Cover "Heuser and Shawchuck have done an outstanding revision of their classic volume, Leading the Congregation. The pursuits of excellence and spirituality are woven into a beautiful and practical guide for faithful ministry. This volume belongs on the desk of every pastor and in the curriculum of every school of theology. The authors are as courageous in naming the cost, demands, and dangers of ministry as they are faithful in making plain the abundant resources available to enable and enhance effective ministry in our time. Leading the Congregation is a book for everyone seeking a practical guide to excellence and faithfulness in ministry."   --Bishop Rueben P. Job, author of Three Simple Rules: A Wesleyan Way of Living

"Leading the Congregation is an excellent resource for those looking for authenticity and wholeness in leadership. Congregations desperately need the type of leader this book defines, that is, a Christ-centered leader whose sacrificial service provides the welcoming of the soul and the weaving of community in a wounded world."   --Dr. Jesse Miranda, President of the Miranda Center and CEO of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC)

"Leading the Congregation is a captivating analysis of the life issues of a spiritual Christian leader and the congregations he or she serves. I relish the insights of the authors from spiritual formation, psychology, organization, and leadership analysis. It is a real help to the busily involved Christian leader so that one can understand the reality one is immersed in. It is an extremely welcomed book."   --Elder Oscar Owens, Jr., Christian Education Director of West Angeles Church of God in Christ

"Young leaders, you will not just love this book; you will get it! Heuser and Shawchuck thoughtfully address perhaps the most challenging aspect of leading in the church today: the 'with others' part."   --Chip Espinoza, coauthor of Managing the Millennial
