Leaders try to bring about change. And change almost always elicits opposition.
So how do leaders navigate change, and the opposition to it, without giving up their dream for what could and should be? Carey Nieuwhof, pastor of Connexus Church near Toronto, examines five strategies that can help church leaders manage change:
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.

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.

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.

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 if 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.

Carey explains his strategies in a thoroughly engaging way with plenty of examples and stories - it is certainly not a wooden dry book. His basis biblically is a few episodes in Numbers where Moses is leading the Israelites through he wilderness. Carey's experience clearly is conveyed making this a well grounded book.
Everyone who seeks to bring about change will face opposition. Therefore, I would heartily recommend this book to any who are leading a church and seeking to revitalise for missional purposes. It really is a great read and very helpful.
This is a book written by someone who is lives I the same are that the book is addressing. Carey is a great leader and pastor who deals himself with change daily. It shows in the writing of this book that he deals with it and has given great thought to the best Biblical ways to see change happen.
I would recommend this short and fast read to anyone who is looking for help in creating their own filter to run changes through. Or anyone who wants to feel support in how long and hard seeing change can be.
