I loved the premise of 15 Characteristics of Effective Pastors by by Kevin W. Mannoia and Larry Walkemeyer, that Godly character AND ministry competence make for an effective Pastor. It’s not one or the other. It’s both. Depending on which circle you run in, emphasis is put on one to the exclusion of the other. But wisdom would tell us that we need both to be effective in our calling.
I liked the book and would recommend it to someone who wants to explore this subject a little deeper.
