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 hed known when he was starting a new church.
With additional stories from Francis Chan and Larry Osbourne, 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 being 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 realise 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 for a strong finish.
