You, the Warrior Leader
Pastor Bobby Welch, President of the Southern Baptist Convention, authored a captivating book You the Warrior Leader. Welch believes as Christians, we are at war, but the spiritual battlefield is much larger and much more intense than any news station will ever report. And, Christian leadership training is one of the most lacking resources for the church today. His book is a road map for Christians engaging daily in the spiritual war, and it teaches them how to become warrior leaders for God's army. Welch says what is needed most in the church today are "warrior leaders to lead charges into battle."
Pastor Bobby Welch & William Cooper
Using military strategies to combat spiritual warfare, Welch describes how Christian leaders can form a multiplying army for the Kingdom. And Welch is no stranger to the military battlefield. He returned from the war in Vietnam, a decorated hero and put aside dreams of a military career for the life of an evangelist and minister. Throughout his book, Welch uses military terminology to connect the spiritual battle to the physical one, believing the two are greatly intertwined.
The mission to which God's army has ultimately been called is the Great Commission. Through leadership principles found in Welch's book, Christians in God's army can launch an effective campaign to win and disciple the national, local and international world to Christ. Christians should be on the offensive, ready for attack and prepared to go to battle at any time. You, the Warrior Leader will help enable Christians to expand their force in a unified, focused, mobilized and intentional army for the Kingdom of Christ.
