Endorsements

"Here pastors will find both what they need to know about church administration and, even more importantly, why they need to know it for faithful and fruitful ministry."
– Lovett H. Weems Jr., Wesley Theological Seminary, author of Church Leadership: Vision, Team, Culture, and Integrity

"More than simply a 'how to' manual delineating the nuts and bolts of what is needed to 'run' a local congregation or church-related agency, this book is an invitation to join a well-informed conversation on the sacred responsibility of leading, managing, and nurturing a faith community. To this conversation, Bacher and Cooper-White bring not only knowledge and experience but wisdom, insight, encouragement and theological perspective."
– R. Robert Cueni, President, Lexington Theological Seminary

"The authors provide a refreshing stream of thought for engaging the practical topic and 'holy calling' of administration. They combine history, biblical illustrations, and organizational wisdom to propose a thorough approach for the practice of administration. I highly recommend this as an excellent resource for anyone serving in administrative leadership."
– The Rev. Dr. Marion Wyvetta Bullock, Executive for Leadership Development, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

"This book is an answer to many questions I have fielded over the years, especially from local church and regional leaders! It is a creative mix of the very practical with the theoretical to produce an excellent resource for a variety of church leaders. This will be high on my recommended list in the months to come. It is a valuable resource for every pastor and trustee as well as a number of other regional church leaders and affiliated organizations."
– Rev. Cheryl H. Wade, Associate General Secretary and Treasurer, American Baptist Churches USA
