Courageous Churchmen


If your desire is to be a spiritual leader as defined by Scripture, you cannot afford not to read this book.

George J. Zemek, Academic Dean, The Expositors Seminary

Since practically all Christians have a calling to leadership at one level or another (Heb 5:12), every Christian will find this book a profitable study and an encouraging, practical resource—one they will return to again and again. Whether you are just starting to disciple others or have been a pastor for decades, you will find much in this volume that will challenge and provoke, and encourage you to be more Christlike in your leadership.

Courageous Churchmen is reminiscent of the works written by the godly Puritan “doctors of the soul” of centuries ago, but with keen insight and commentary on contemporary culture.

You hold in your hand a penetrating, compelling analysis of what really constitutes lasting spiritual leadership and influence upon the lives of others.

Prior to his ministry in Florida, Jerry served for ten years as Senior Associate Pastor and Personal Assistant to Dr. John MacArthur at Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA.

What is it that compels a group of people to follow the leadership and vision of one person? Why are the insights and pursuits of certain individuals more persuasive than those of others?

This book reveals how leadership should be characterized in the church, and how biblical leadership must differ from the kind of leadership promoted in the world. It explores the dynamics of leadership, particularly the character traits that need to be built up or eradicated in leaders, the dangers that leaders face and temptations to which they are particularly prone, and the development of future leaders: how to recognize leadership potential and encourage leadership gifts in the next generation.
