Frameworks for Lay Leadership

About This Collection

Engaging the Story of God: Frameworks for Lay Leadership Exploring a Wesleyan Theology: Frameworks for Lay Leadership Embodying a Theology of Ministry and Leadership: Frameworks for Lay Leadership Entering the Mission of God: Frameworks for Lay Leadership


Scripture tells us that believers are “a royal priesthood” (1 Peter 2:9). This means that all Christians, in one form or another, are called into places of ministry and leadership. Not only is this a great privilege, it is also a great responsibility. Men and women desiring to serve in church leadership in some capacity undergo basic training to assure that they understand the foundations of the Christian faith and of our Nazarene identity. This includes a deepening knowledge and appreciation of Scripture, Theology, Ministry, Mission, History, and Holiness.

Frameworks for Lay Leadership is a series of six books designed to do just that—equip lay leaders for ministry in the Church, whether local, district, or general.

These books have the greatest impact when they are read, processed, applied, and contextualised in partnership with a qualified mentor.

Welcome to this journey of transformation!
