When the gift of leadership comes alive in the church, it gives birth to radically devoted followers of Christ.
Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church and Chairman of the Willow Creek Association Board, waited 30 years to write this book on the strategic importance of the spiritual gift of leadership. As he pastored the fledgling church and weathered the storms of amazing growth and change, his thoughts on leadership deepened and crystallized. Now, in Courageous Leadership, he shares the passionate cry of his heart: the local church is the hope of the world, and its future rests in the hands of its leaders.
This book is not written for business, government, or educational leaders-even though their work is important-because, in the end, the causes they have dedicated their lives to do not have the power to change the world. Instead, Bill Hybels writes Courageous Leadership for local church leaders, the people who have the potential to be the most influential force in the world.
