"I wonder how it feels for a minister to move into a new pastorate in a strange community." "Yes, and I wonder how his wife and children feel about pulling up roots in one community and moving to a new church."

I wonder what we could do to improve how we assimilate new members." "I saw in a recent survey of pastors that one of the points of the greatest discontent and frustration among ministers was the management of their time. Sometimes I feel that is also one of my biggest problems."

Kemper is the first volume in the Creative Leadership Series. This series of paperbound books is a response to these and similar questions and concerns. This first volume is filled with insights, ideas, and suggestions for the minister about to begin a new pastorate and for the lay leaders in the congregation seeking or about to welcome a new pastor....
