Programs, Pews, and Porches: Kingdom Leaders Becoming Relationally Strategic and
Missionally Effective Through the Power of Community

Jacquelin W. Maxwell

Heretofore, church leadership development programs have worked from the assumption that strong church congregations are the result of effective leaders overseeing well-developed programs. In the last half of the twentieth century scores of studies demonstrate many positive outcomes from these programs. However, these programs have focused on empirically measuring program effectiveness and leaders with little or no attention given to the communities and their particular characteristics. Programs, Pews, and Porches: Kingdom Leaders Becoming Relationally Strategic and Missionally Effective Through the Power of Community is an eight-hour introductory workshop of a transformational process. It lays a foundation to understanding how a community of Kingdom leaders feels and works by employing activities and experiential learning to provide leadership development and coaching; incorporating a theoretical and conceptual social learning model.
