Pastors and lay leaders know that hiring, supervising, and evaluating staff are among the trickiest, and often the most poorly handled, tasks facing congregations. But take heart: help is on the way. When Moses Meets Aaron is both instruction manual and tool-kit--everything you need to develop good and faithful personnel practices in the church.--Martin B. Copenhaver, president, Andover Newton Theological School
This book is a welcome addition to any pastor's library as a resource for board leadership, employee relations, and ministry success. Churches will find a compelling toolbox in this book and will be guided by excellence in a long-awaited tool all churches deserve: good management.--Pierce W. Klemmt, Rector, Christ Church, Alexandria, Virginia
