How to Treat Ministry Colleagues
John R. Strubhar
After fifty years of being a leader in various capacities, author Dr. John R. Strubhar has concluded that the most important aspect of leadership is how the leader engages and serves his/her ministry colleagues and the larger church constituency.
In Other-Centered Leadership, he calls all leaders back to the basics of leadership, teaching pastors how to engage with others in a relational capacity that reflects the clear teachings of God’s word. Focusing on putting others first, Strubhar discusses how leadership rises and falls on the ability of the leader to treat ministry colleagues with love, acceptance, and accountability. The ability to respond biblically to a ministry colleague is the prerequisite for a healthy ministry team.
Strubhar offers simple principles, gleaned from God’s word and interaction with hundreds of leaders, to stimulate a new generation of pastoral leaders who will treat others better than themselves for the glory of God.
