Subscribe to Leading Ideas, A free E-newsletter providing thoughtful, relevant, and succinct information for church leaders.

Leading Ideas is built around the premise that leaders don't need answers. They need to know the right questions. Each week, it features a helpful "right question," an insightful quote about the nature of leadership, and an article by Dr. Lovett H. Weems, or a guest author. Leading Ideas also includes vignettes lifting up the real-life experiences of leaders and congregations, and book reviews. www.churchleadership.com

Plan either a four or 12-week study for your congregation using Leadership in the Wesleyan Spirit.

  1. How do we relate to our community?
  2. How do we relate to one another?
  3. How do we help people relate to God?
  4. How do we serve God’s mission?
