Exploring the biblical models of shepherding, mentoring and equipping, They Smell Like Sheep is a master key that unlocks the secrets of leadership for anyone.
Author Lynn Anderson addresses the starting and ending place of true leadership among God’s people: the heart of a shepherd. He presents Jesus, the Head Shepherd, as our only reliable model of godly leadership; he guides us through the Scriptures and gives us practical exercises to strengthen our hearts as we do the difficult yet rewarding work of shepherding people of God with love.
This twelve-session training package is filled with hands-on shepherding and mentoring skills. Applying the principles in They Smell Like Sheep, it incorporates video instruction and group interaction, but goes far beyond the book.
Suitable for use in small or large groups, this spiritual leadership training is designed primarily for church leaders, but the basic Biblical principles apply in all areas of spiritual leadership – parenting, friendship, small group leadership, coaching – and even in the market place.

- Wish to be a shepherd, not a manager, but don’t know where to start
- Desire more shepherding effectiveness
