Nobody disputes that the world is changing—we see it all around us every day. Yet, the African-American church has been slow to adopt change in the leadership structure. The result is a congregation that feels out of place. African-Americans have grown accustomed to sharing leadership in business, civic organizations, on the job, and in the community. However, when they attend church on Sunday they often find a situation that does not utilize their gifts.

Michael Evans has studied the Black Church extensively and discovered the growing need for the church to find its way through the massive demographic changes. This highly readable, well-researched book carefully explores the need for change and then offers concrete guidance in how to develop the leadership needed by the Black Church. 

“Leadership in the Black Church” 
Examines the Current Situation
Explains the Servant Leadership model of Jesus
Exposes what Current Church Members are Thinking
Enlightens a Path Toward Constructive Change
