Drawing on the field-tested expertise of the Center for Church Based Training, The Leadership Baton will help you get the leaders you need up and running, developing leadership qualities they can in turn hand off to other up-and-coming leaders. Part 1 casts a vision for church-based leadership training-not merely a program, but a leadership development culture based on biblical and historical foundations. Part 2 presents a whole-life approach to leadership development that is wisdom-based (through courses), relationship-based (through the church community), and personal (through mentoring). Part 3 describes a comprehensive plan for leadership development, then breaks it down to target the needs of governing boards, emerging leaders, pastoral staffs, and interns.
With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book concludes with two appendices, including a self-inventory for church leaders to help them assess their personal strengths and weak areas that need development. Put the principles in The Leadership Baton to work with patience, and in time your church will never lack the right people at the right time to help it fulfill its kingdom mission.

Review 2 for The Leadership Baton: An International Strategy for Developing Leaders in Your Church
Date:March 22, 2008
Good overall work from an organization that has done it right. Theologically sound. Good resources and practical checklist as well. Only critical comment is that it is designed for large churches. As such it has a lot of detail about a lot of different levels and more complexity. I would like to see suggestions for how smaller churches with maybe only one or a few full-time staff would go about developing leadership.
