In this book, pastor and seasoned church leader Wayne Cordeiro speaks the truth in love, offering wisdom and insight to prepare leaders as they face the difficulties and hardships of planting and leading churches, while providing encouragement and inspiration for the journey. An experienced practitioner, Wayne shares the things he wishes he'd known when he was starting a new church. With additional stories from Francis Chan and Larry Osborne, each chapter includes a thought-provoking challenge question to develop a heart that is surrendered to God, focused on 'being and becoming' versus 'doing and accomplishing.' Wayne writes about a healthy integration and balance of personal care and leadership amidst the difficulties of church leadership. Instead of a 'how to' book on models and methods, this is a combination of a self-assessment book that challenges leaders' scorecards of success, encourages leaders to realize that they are not alone in what they are experiencing, and provides wisdom for the long haul to position younger leaders for a life of ministry and finish strong. On each book sold, $1.00 will be donated to developing and mentoring leaders.

A Must Read for Ministry Workers
JP (Canada) 12/28/2013 10:17 AM
After reading this book, I ordered 5 more copies and gave a book to each of the pastors at my church. I told each of them how much I loved them and how much this book helped me. I wish I had received this book when I first started ministry. There are so many incredible and practical life lessons that are shared by these 3 amazing leaders. There are axioms that can save you from unneeded pain if your learn them early and are disciplined in your behavior. One simple example is "Never sacrifice family on the alter of ministry." We need to learn this lesson before life sifts you. We will all go through sifting, but with the help of this book, you will grow better and not bitter.
