Trust is a bankable asset for leaders who direct, shape, and guide faith communities. Trust is a form of equity that fuels attitudes, behaviors, and actions in faith communities who aim to transform the world. Through a process of self-examination into the behaviors and actions that help build or break trust, leaders can step boldly into ministry where God is sending them. This guide to building trust as an asset is practical and analytical. The concepts are supported by anecdotes and stories, so that the reader is invited to share or journal with their own experiences. The book will level the playing field, so that a small group of church leaders can engage together as peers (lay and clergy) within their particular faith community. This book is useful for pastors and staff teams, the personnel committee, the administrative board or church council, and youth leaders.
