These are challenging times for churches and ministries. Prominent voices like Richard Stearns (Unfinished), David Platt (Radical), Shane Claiborne (The Irresistible Revolution), and Kyle Idleman (Not a Fan) have noted that American churches and ministry leaders may be headed in the wrong direction. Reports reveal that the global church also wants answers. Are we lost?
This book is about recalculating the route for Christ-centered ministry. Its underlying assumption is that far too many churches and ministries operate according to unexamined presuppositions that drive everything they do. When we examined them, we found that the way we define and measure success has much to do with how we got to the precarious place we find ourselves. Our definitions of success shape what we say, think, and do.
