This is our watch and leadership makes all the difference. You and I are called to lead the Christian movement forward in our own small wayeven as we search to find the path ourselves. In this book, you will discover four primary behaviors that effectively shift our mindset as leaders and prepare our faith communities for leadership in a changing world. It is written for leaders (pastors, youth ministers and congregational councils) to use with their teams to strategically focus on behaviors known to help people and communities grow. This is different from the usual process of setting goals or identifying outcomes. These behaviors produce contextually relevant results based on the leadership and location. Practicing these four behaviors will lead you on a faith pilgrimage that will produce a future we are unable to fully imagine right now. We believe everyone and every congregation can grow. Growth is a choice that recognizes Christian leadership is really discipleship, with leaders growing other leaders. This book is an attempt to answer the question, What does it mean to grow leaders with a deep, bold, consequential faith during the greatest cultural shifts that have ever taken place in our world? Our research indicates that the difference between growing and stalled leaders and faith communities rests in how these growth indicators are turned into behaviors. These specific adaptive practices will help leaders shape the path from a beloved traditional church to those with deep, bold, consequential faith. As an organization, the LEAD Team is prepared to accompany leaders through this process. The book is written to be accessible to both leaders who want a quick read and to those that want to study behavior change in a deeper way. It can also be used by teams of people for a shared journey. Welcome to life in The Sacred Valley. We can do this!
