I am half way through this book and I am totally excited to learn better ways to engage the people in my church and my community. These times are challenging for the church and I believe that The Missional Leader lays out a well conceived strategy to lead better in these changing times.

Review 2 for The Missional Leader: Equipping Your Church to Reach a Changing World
Having read many books on leadership, and having read a few on the missional church, I was very pleased to find this volume with a missional approach to leadership. The author asserts that this approach can be used in any church setting to give the congregation more of a missional church direction. Although the entire book is well-worth reading, the most intensive section is chapters 3-5. I recommend this one highly.
