"Leadership is influence, and spiritual leadership is biblical influence. If God has called you to a position of spiritual leadership, you must embrace the call, anticipate spiritual opposition, and commit to a journey of spiritual growth and oversight. In these pages, Dr. Paul Chappell will challenge your heart, equip your life, and inspire you to press on to higher ground as a spiritual leader. The Spiritual Leader summarizes a biblical philosophy of spiritual leadership that has been lived out dynamically through the life of the author. Every principle in these chapters flows from the Word of God and from a heart that has effectively served God's people for over two decades. Every page will challenge you to serve more effectively and to lead with greater understanding and passion. "
