Great leaders don't develop overnight. Becoming great requires the guidance, support, and wisdom of others who model outstanding leadership behavior. Christian leaders need individuals they can respect and imitate which can be hard to find in a world where being successful doesn't always mean commanding with character. David, the great king of Israel and major writer of the Psalms, is one of the greatest leaders in history. His writings offer us a window into this heart-the heart of a shepherd, a king, and most of all God's servant. In Maximum Integrity, Stan Toler and Jerry Brecheisen look at several of the psalms especially suited for the moods and needs of leaders and share insights born from the times when, during their own life journeys, they paused and allowed themselves to be changed by the words of King David. Using David's life as a model--including his leadership techniques and personal triumphs and failures--Toler and Brecheisen offer Christian principles and strategies for leaders to meditate on and live by. Maximum Integrity provides leaders with practical ways to apply the teachings of the ancient psalms to their lives today and encourages them to remember to trust God to help direct and care for them--no matter what the situation may be.

"A good education will land you a good job," "Be an entrepreneur/Start something in a garage or dorm room" and even "Jesus saves" are narratives that collapsed for the millennial generation (born 1982-2002). These narratives, amongst many similar social and religious ones, have lost their meaning and power as millennials question all authorities and struggle to flourish in a world come of age. With their needs for community and success, a strong spirituality, and believing that their gifts should be recognized and can make a difference, millennials increasingly find meaning and purpose outside the church. As they face economic uncertainty, reduced career prospects, unceasing change, as well as civic, global, and ecological uncertainties, however, a large number of millennials are overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and depression. Caught between hope and fear, millennials leave the church with their values of personal transformation, purpose, community, spirituality, social transformation and ecological awareness. Ironically the church often holds the same values.

The Millennial Narrative is written for pastoral leaders who want to welcome millennials, both inside and outside their congregation. The book draws on the wisdom of the prophetic Book of Joel as a narrative worth living into. Drawing on Joel's three chapters, The Millennial Narrative empowers pastoral leaders to:

- Facilitate the work of mourning millennials are facing;
- Envision a spiritual community that can welcome millennials;
- Introduce a compassionate God that restores and indwells as the Spirit;
- Reflect on God's judgment through the lens of accountability; and,
- Support and encourage millennials to be a blessing to others.

In addition, pastoral leaders will receive a sermon outline and material for adult education.

Leadership can be an exhilarating experience. But it also has its challenges. Leaders who cast visions, explore options, and take risks are also restricted by legal, ethical, organizational, and positional boundaries. When it comes to testing these boundaries, experience is key. Author David L. McKenna is a leadership expert with over thirty years of experience in leadership roles. Building off of his administrative positions at a variety of colleges and seminaries, McKenna now introduces fourteen maxims that all leaders should read. Drawing examples from the ultimate leader, Jesus Christ, McKenna imparts practical advice like, "Never hide behind a gas mask" and "Never play God." The advice in these short, catchy chapters will provide clarity and wisdom for pastors, church leaders, and any Christian who serves in a leadership role.

NEXT PASTORAL SUCCESSION THAT WORKS

Every church and ministry goes through changes in leadership, and the issue is far bigger than the wave of pastors from the Baby Boomer generation who are moving toward retirement. When a pastor leaves a church, ministries are disrupted and members drift away. If the church is already struggling, it can find itself suddenly in very dire straits indeed. But the outcome doesn't have to be that way.
What if when a pastor moved on, the church knew exactly what to do to find a suitable replacement because a plan and a process had been in place for some time? While there is no simple, one-size-fits-all solution to the puzzle of planning for a seamless pastoral succession, "Next" offers church leaders and pastors a guide to asking the right questions in order to plan for the future. Vanderbloemen, founder of a leading pastoral search firm, and Bird, an award-winning writer and researcher, share insider stories of succession successes and failures in dozens of churches, including some of the nation's most influential. Through case studies, interviews, and real-time research, the authors demystify successful pastoral succession and help readers prepare for an even brighter future for their ministries.

The revised and updated tenth anniversary edition of the classic, beloved business fable that has changed millions of lives in organizations around the world.

Our Iceberg Is Melting is a simple story about doing well under the stress and uncertainty of rapid change. Based on the award-winning work of Harvard Business School's John Kotter, it can help you and your colleagues thrive during tough times.

On an iceberg near the coast of Antarctica, group of beautiful emperor pen-guins live as they have for many years. Then one curious bird discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home--and almost no one listens to him.

The characters in the story--Fred, Alice, Louis, Buddy, the Professor, and NoNo--are like people you probably recognize in your own organization, including yourself. Their tale is one of resistance to change and heroic action, seemingly intractable obstacles and clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. The penguins offer an inspiring model as we all struggle to adapt to new circumstances.

Our Iceberg Is Melting is based on John Kotter's pioneer-ing research into the eight steps that can produce needed change in any sort of group. After finishing the story, you'll have a powerful framework for influencing your own team, no matter how big or small.

This tenth anniversary edition preserves the text of the timeless story, together with new illustrations, a revised afterword, and a Q&A with the authors about the responses they've gotten over the past decade. Prepare to be both enlightened and delighted, whether you're already a fan of this classic fable or are discovering it for the first time.

Power of Team Leadership Achieving Success Through Shared Responsibility

Sale 20% off
Most leadership in today's churches comes from "solo practitioners"--individuals who bear the burden of providing all the direction the ministry they direct requires. Inevitably, this results not only in burned-out leaders, but underutilized lay people who merely attend and observe rather than becoming actively engaged in ministry, growing in discipleship, and freeing professional staff to focus on pastoral priorities.
In The Power of Team Leadership, noted researcher George Barna demonstrates the incredible difference lay-team leadership can make in a church's ministry. Based on Barna's latest national studies, the book sets forth clearly what churches need to know in order to recruit, train, and deploy lay leadership teams for maximum effectiveness in the Kingdom of God.
