In The Shepherd Leader, pastor and professor Tim Witmer laid out seven elements of an effective shepherding plan, showing church leaders how to minister to their congregations in practical, pastoral ways. Now, in this standalone but complementary volume, he gathers seven church leaders to show how they and their churches have addressed specific challenges in innovative ways. How do you adapt a shepherding plan to a large congregation? How do you fine-tune or revise plans that aren’t working? How do pastors get reluctant elders on board? How do male leaders make sure the women of the congregation are receiving adequate care? Randy Schlichting, Bijan Mirtolooi, John Barrett, Ken Jones, Mark Hallock, Gary Smith, and Sue Harris contribute.
