This Leader's Guide is the accompanying piece to DR 881 Lay Servants as Christian Transformational Leaders – Participant's Book. It is a PDF that can be downloaded and used to support the course outlined below.

Building on the previous Lay Servant course "Does Your Church Have a Prayer?", this Participant's Book will guide Lay Servants seeking to be more empowered to lead their congregations toward vitality. Written with two distinct purposes, Lay Servants as Christian Transformational Leaders will first define the three types of Christian transformational leadership and the four qualities of Christian transformational leaders. Then the course will focus on congregational vitality, organizational life cycles, assessing current realities, and leading transformational change. The Participant's Book is available for purchase here.
