It is All About Relationships: Practical Pointers for Positive Pastoring
"Among the most sacred of relationships are those the pastor has with his or her elders, deacons and deaconesses, and church members. God is honored when the people are satisfied with the pastor and when the pastor has a positive attitude toward them. God wants the pastor, local church leaders, and church members to love each other, pray for each other, work together, serve together, worship together, and win souls together. Following are some suggestions that might help the pastor develop healthy relationships with his or her people."
