Dr. Paul M. Dietterich’s new book, “Foretaste: Leadership for the Missional Church,” is a comprehensive guide to leadership in the modern church. Drawing on his experience as a local pastor, as well as his many years as a church consultant, Dr. Dietterich offers practical help to church leaders in their efforts to re-define the mission of the church and practice ministry in a post-covid era.

Dr. Dietterich’s book explores the concept of a missional ecclesiology, which is based on six leadership practices: building supportive relationships, practicing receptivity, emphasizing performance, building missional leadership teams, facilitating work, and using group methods of decision making. He outlines how to implement these practices in the local church, providing practical guidance on how to build supportive relationships, encourage and equip leadership teams, and create an organizational climate that reflects the gospel being proclaimed. He emphasizes that the leadership system of the church is an expression of the faith being proclaimed and can be altered to be more faithful to the gospel. Leaders can set the tone by building supportive relationships and practicing receptivity.
