Honor to the Great Head of the Church: A Transformational Model for Church Leadership, Administration, and Management

by Margarette W. Williams

To grow and transform a community, people should be encouraged, inspired, and motivated to succeed in ways that make a difference. That’s why transformational leadership is greatly beneficial to churches as it contributes to the unity and success of various sects.

In this first volume of the Transformational Church Administration Series, Margarette pens a manual to unite people around a shared enthusiasm for God’s intended purpose and mission for His church. Throughout the book, church leaders are exhorted to connect with and interact with their followers to change their lives by enhancing morals and motivation.

These sorts of leaders shall focus on the organization’s objective through encouraging their followers by demonstrating the vision, challenging each individual to learn and ask questions, taking into account the needs of the individual, and inspiring people to realize their full potential through motivation. The book explains the importance of consciously combining God’s divine mission as articulated in biblical theology with practical organizational leadership and management applications.

For the church to remain under the Lordship of Christ, it must be in a continuous pursuit to seek Jesus the Christ in all engagements of worship, administration, management, and service. Therefore, transformational leaders are listeners who do not pass judgment on their circumstances but, instead, encourage people to persevere and never give up. They are focused on the organization’s mission, calling, and vision.

The call of God to redeem lost man to redemption and discipleship is emphasized as functions that can be anchored in service models and organizations. From the learners’ view, they gain a biblical perspective on leadership and administration. So, the leadership theories and management principles presented lead to results that bring edification to the glory of God in all aspects of church leadership and administration.

We have had transformational leaders since the time of Jesus. But you can be transformational by actively furthering your faith in your personal and professional lives, while also motivating (transforming) others to do the same. You can start learning more about leadership and how to become a transformative leader from this book.
