The church represents the largest organization in the world, covering all nations, all cultures, and millions of members. Church leadership, like leadership in any organizations, is of vital importance. However, the difference is that Jesus's model of leadership and use of power and authority can be different from leadership in the world of business. The differences between the fivefold ministry gifts and the leadership of elders and deacons are often misunderstood, and the changing nature of church leadership from biblical roots has resulted in several forms of maladaptive leadership in the church today, the most common being the rise of the pastoral supremacy syndrome, where the focus on the pastoral gift has effectively destroyed the fivefold ministry intended to be God's leadership design. This books is about leadership-specifically about leadership in God's church.
