Leadership Articles

These articles are intended to aid you in your study of Biblical leadership, Christian ministry, and other subjects related thereto. They are written by a variety of authors from various business and religious backgrounds. We have found good teaching and application in each article even though we may not necessarily agree with everything that is written. We are taking for granted that you are a mature church leader who can "rightly divide" the Word of God and can separate the wheat from the chaff. If you find an article that you believe should not be included on our site please contact us with your comments. To submit articles for publication in the Leadership Library, please forward your article via e-mail to Leadership Library.
