Good & Faithful ServentThe greatest need in the body of Christ today is for spiritual leadership training, and the first law of spiritual leadership is that you are not the leader—the Holy Spirit is! If you follow him, you will lead many to righteousness.

The differences between secularized leadership and spiritual leadership.

How to avoid using people to obtain a secularized vision and instead have God’s vision for the individuals you are leading.

How to have influence with God (power in prayer).

The importance of spiritual warnings.

Seven ways to live in Christlike character virtues.

Over sixty professional drawings to help you “see” spiritual truths.

If you long for intimacy with God and want your life to glorify Jesus, you’ll find Good and Faithful Servant to be a comprehensive, timely resource to help you be a Spirit-led servant of Jesus Christ and his church.

More from Wes



During my many years in the ministry I’ve tried to feed my leadership gift with books on leadership but I never bonded with them. They were so dry. Then never talked about being rich in God, how to get supernatural faith, have a dynamic prayer life or live in the power of the Spirit. I finally decided I just must not be a leader but only a “teacher.”  During those years I “led” thousands to Christ and led thousands more into forgiveness and lessons in Christ-like maturity.       Two years ago I began to pray earnestly that God would restore spiritual POWER to the American Church. Then to my surprise, God strongly impressed me to write a book on SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP and gave me the title and subtitle.  The book gushed out of me in eight days of writing and I’ve spent the last year and a half perfecting the copy and getting the sixty plus drawings finished.  This book has the leadership lessons the Holy Spirit personally taught me.  They are not DRY.  You’ll find God’s presence in this book.  It will teach you how to be a great follower of the real LEADER of the church, the Holy Spirit.


ONE MORE THING:  These lessons are for every Christian.  We don’t need titles and positions to be spiritual leaders.  Just desire to “lead many to righteousness” by being a great follower of the Holy Spirit.  God will use YOU to bring “massive glory” to His name.


Q&A with Wes Daughenbaugh


BTB — Many authors say that they have always been a writer. When did you come to realize this.

Wes — I started writing serial stories when I was in grade school and students would sometimes stay inside during recess to hear my next episode.  But when I was twenty-three I said to God, “I love you so much I wish I could put myself in that copy machine and make thousands of me to serve you all over the world.”  God spoke instantly and firmly, “DO IT!”  Every tract, booklet, audio CD, DVD, and book is a “copy of me.” I’ve been writing these things for forty-seven years.

BTB — What types of research did you pursue?

Wes — I’ve read many leadership books and “success” books.  My content for my book on spiritual leadership, however, came from the thousands of hours of listening to the Bible, reading it, or studying it with the aid of a computer.  My content also comes from hearing directly from God on a number of occasions and from living my entire adult life under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.  

BTB — Can you tell us a little about what inspired your book.

Wes — During the 18 years I pastored a church I’d often listen to leadership teachings, read leadership books, and sometimes go to leadership seminars.  But try as I may, I just couldn’t get excited about any of it.  It bored me.  I finally decided that I must not be a “leader” but only a teacher and evangelist.

During my 47 years in the ministry I’ve led thousands to Christ, led thousands of people into forgiveness, taught thousands to be effective in prayer, and led thousands into intimate experiences with the Holy Spirit.  But I didn’t consider myself  a “leader.”

A little more than two years ago I began to grieve over the powerless state of the American church.  I told God I would like to become a living prayer for a restoration of spiritual power in His churches.  

During a special series of meetings in Vermont I preached THE WAY BACK TO SPIRITUAL POWER.  We experienced a strong move of the Holy Spirit and a prophetic lady told me God was giving me a “trumpet.”

A few days after that I got up one morning and God clearly commissioned me to write an impassioned book on SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP.  I realized that the reason I hadn’t bonded with other leadership training was because most of it was secularized, unplugged from the Holy Spirit, the true Leader of the Church.

The book gushed out of me in eight days. Then I spent a year and a half carefully going over every word as well as thinking up the illustrations and getting my artist to adjust them to perfection.

BTB — What do you want your readers to take away with them after finishing Good And Faithful Servant?

Wes — What I want readers to take away with them after finishing GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT—A Trumpet Call To Return To Spiritual Leadership. I want all my readers to put into practice these lessons because they are for every believer. We are all called to FOLLOW THE LEADER and bear spiritual fruit.  I want the readers to desire to be used of God, to bring Him “massive glory” and become spiritual “door openers for God.”  I’m praying that my book will be part of a great world-wide move of God that raises up powerful and godly spiritual leaders for an international revival that precedes the return of Jesus Christ.

BTB — Readers always want to know what is next for an author. Do you have any works in progress you can share about?

Wes — I want to write a book called FREE INDEED — A Checklist For Spiritual Liberty. This book will have about 30 great individual lessons about how to live and walk in the Kingdom of God.  It will major on revealing Christ and minor on exposing the devil.  It will help you major on worship and minor on spiritual warfare.

BTB — Anything else you would like to share with my readers?

Wes — GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT will become a full curriculum with a DVD set of me teaching through it, along with a Teacher’s Guide (E-book) and a fillable Student Workbook (also an E-book).  My delight would be for many of you to not only read it but to TEACH IT so that you use it to train and raise up true spiritual leaders.

I believe the need for spiritual leaders is the GREATEST NEED in the world, and there are surely many needs.  To say that anything is the GREATEST NEED is quite a statement.  Nevertheless, it is true.  There is no greater need than the need for hundreds of thousands of true spiritual leaders to be raised up.
