Founding Pastor of one of North America's most influential churches, Carey Nieuwhof wants to help you avoid and overcome life's seven hardest and most crippling challenges: cynicism, compromise, disconnectedness, irrelevance, pride, burnout, and emptiness. These are challenges that few of us expect but that we all experience at some point. If you have yet to confront these obstacles, Carey provides clear tools and guidelines for anticipation and avoidance. On the other hand, if you already feel stuck in a painful experience or are wrestling with one of these challenges, he provides the steps you need to find a way out and a way forward into a more powerful and vibrant future.
You've probably noticed ...
Churches aren't growing.
Young adults are walking away.
Volunteers are hard to recruit.
Leaders are burning out.
And the culture is changing faster than ever before.
There's no doubt the church is in a moment in history for which few church leaders are prepared.
You can look for answers, but the right response depends on having the right conversation.
In Lasting Impact, Carey Nieuwhof leads you and your team through seven conversations that will help your church grow and have a lasting impact.
What if ...
- Having the right conversations could change your trajectory?
- There was more hope than you realized?
- The potential to grow was greater than the potential to decline?
- Your community was waiting for a church to offer the hope they're looking for?
- Your best days as a church were ahead of you?
Maybe the future belongs to the churches that are willing to have the most honest conversations at a critical time. That's what Lasting Impact is designed to facilitate.
1. Determine who is for (or against) the change and why.
2. Decide where to focus your attention.
3. Develop the questions that will set your course.
4. Learn to attack problems instead of people.
5. Persevere until the critical breakthrough.
Insightful and practical, LEADING CHANGE WITHOUT LOSING IT offers hope and encouragement for leaders, no matter where they serve in the church.
“LEADING CHANGE WITHOUT LOSING IT is a practical guide to help church leaders of every kind navigate change in the face of opposition. Because so many church leaders are trying to transition an existing ministry rather than start a new one, this book comes at a critical time. The five strategies Carey outlines are practical and applicable to virtually any organization.”
—Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor, North Point Ministries
“If you lead in the church, you need this book. Leading through change is an inevitable part of church ministry and how you navigate these difficult waters will many times determine the legacy that you leave.”
—Pete Wilson, Pastor, Cross Point Church, author of PLAN B, co-author of EMPTY PROMISES
“Every leader—myself included—knows what we need to change. We get stuck at how to bring about change. I made a long list of leaders I know who need to read LEADING CHANGE WITHOUT LOSING IT. Carey Nieuwhof is both deep and practical—an unbeatable combination.”
—Kara Powell, Executive Director, Fuller Youth Institute, co-author of STICKY FAITH
“Knowing Carey Nieuwhof personally makes this book even better than it already is. He has produced a masterpiece to help young leaders like me not completely blow it when it comes to leading through change. I’m buying cases for our team and clients!”
—Casey Graham, Co-founder, Giving Rocket and Preaching Rocket
“When I first started reading Carey’s book, I thought I was doing so for Carey. I believe in him, have enjoyed his posts and prior work, and have always found him to be helpful and intentional in his writings. If Carey wanted me to read his new book, why would I say no? Then I started reading. Wow! Did he write this for me? I realized that Carey was addressing many of the issues I am about to face in a job transition. I’m going to face opposition to what I sense God is calling me to do. Carey’s book gave me new encouragement, even before I pursue my next God-given dream. Something tells me, this book is going to have the same impact on you. Read this book!”
—Ron Edmondson, pastor, leadership consultant, and blogger
“Carey is an incredible leader who has an uncanny gift for articulating difficult issues and providing practical solutions. Every great leader has faced tremendous opposition when pursuing a dream, and Carey has done a brilliant job of providing clear steps that every leader would be wise to follow.”
—Joe Sangl, President and CEO, Injoy Stewardship Solutions
“Leading through change is one of the most important, and one of the most challenging, calls any Christian leader will ever face.
