Toxic Leaders in Our Ranks


Feb 5 2014
New Army research could inform how the church fosters healthier, godlier leadership.

Navigating these waters well is incredibly complex. After all, no one is free from the temptation of abusing power or fully objective as we assess others. That reality should sober and humble us but not deter us from fighting for the health of our churches. In NPR's article, Lt. Gen. David Perkins concludes, "Quite honestly, we owe it to the American public [to do something about toxic leadership]."

Quite honestly, we owe it to the Body of Christ to follow their lead.

Dorothy Littell Greco divides her time between writing, making photographs, pastoring, and keeping three teenage sons adequately fed. She lives and works in the Boston area and is a reluctant Patriots/Celtics/Bruins/Red Sox fan.
