Pastors and Leaders Field Guide

“The primary purpose of the Pastors and Leaders Field Guide is to help pastors and congregational leaders “live into” shared practices of Christian discipleship that create a congregational culture shaped by the mission of Jesus Christ. This mission is concerned with our personal relationships with God, as well as with God’s love for the communities in which we live. It includes the character of our relationships in congregational life, as well as the manner in which we care for persons who are not yet a part of our fellowship.

The secondary purpose of this field guide is to help pastors and congregational leaders carry out the basic elements of organization and administration required for a well-functioning congregation. Taking care of what, at times, may seem like routine administrative tasks helps build credibility to lead on matters of greater significance. How we choose to lead in these matters reveals the character of our relationships and care for one another as the body of Christ.

The mission of Jesus Christ is not just an idea. It is not a program. The mission of Jesus Christ arises out of our relationship with God and with one another. It is holistic. It is experienced when individuals and congregations share the gospel in ways that bless people’s whole lives—the physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual.”     ~ Ron Harmon, Council of Twelve Apostles
