At a recent meeting, Pastor Mike Lee recommended this book. He said that it was a book that offered sound advice. I ordered the book and have found it to be a great read and recommend it for you. It would be a good book for Councils and church leaders to read and discuss. It is available here on Amazon.

About the book:
“The changing dynamics of contemporary church life are well-known, but what’s less well-known is how leaders can work most effectively in this new context. In Quietly Courageous, esteemed minister and congregational consultant Gil Rendle offers practical guidance to leaders—both lay and ordained—on leading churches today. Rendle encourages leaders to stop focusing on the past and instead focus relentlessly on their mission and purpose—what is ultimately motivating their work. He also urges a shift in perspectives on resources, discusses models of change, and offers suggestions for avoiding common pitfalls and working creatively today.”
