Our country is facing a leadership crisis, with fewer leaders available than are needed. Even more distressing, the church is facing the same crisis. Failures in church leadership seem to be at an epidemic level, reminding us of the adage, "As the leaders go, so go the people."

Author John MacArthur writes on more than 60 traits every leader needs.
