Small church expert Glenn Daman knows the challenges and rewards of small church ministry. His first book, Shepherding the Small Church, focused on the ingredients for an effective ministry in small churches. This follow-up book addresses the essentials for spiritual leadership in the small church. Pastors and other church leaders will benefit from the author's insights within the context of the small church. Daman shows that contrary to today's prevailing wisdom, the pastor's role is not to be a visionary or organizational leader. The pastor's primary responsibility is spiritual leadership through preaching and godly role modeling. Readers will come away with great insights into the important contribution small churches can make in the spiritual development of people in the church and in the community.

Rev. Doyle Peyton
One of the best books I've read on this subject. Every pastor will find it helpful and encouraging. It is full of practical wisdom. A great resource confused or discouraged about their ability to lead churches today.

Review 2 for Leading the Small Church: How to Develop a Transformational Ministry
Date:January 10, 2007
This is an excellent resource for the minister in a small church context (2-150). Daman emphasizes "Transformational Ministry" which consists primarily of spiritual growth through the ministry of the word. Daman demonstrates how this is made effective through relationship building and consistent godly living on the part of the minister. Daman calls us back to the "simplicity" of ministry focused on people, rather than the managerial approach common in larger churches which focuses on programs. An excellent resource. A must have for any small church ministry. Theologically rich. Well researched, outlined, and communicated. Seminary quality material!
