"Culture Shift," written for church leaders, ministers, pastors, ministry teams, and lay leaders, leads you through the process of identifying your church's distinctive culture, gives you practical tools to change it from the inside-out, and provides steps to keep your new culture aligned with your church's mission. Real transformation is not about working harder at what you're already doing or even copying another church's approach but about changing church culture at a foundational level. ^
"Like snowflakes and fingerprints, every church's culture is unique. Learning the art of cultural analysis and cultural formation shown in Culture Shift is indispensable for church leaders." --John Ortberg, teaching pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, and author, If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat, and The Life You've Always Wanted "If you are looking for a quick fix, don't buy this book. But if you're looking for the secret to a faithful, thriving church, then buy out the store." --Bill Easum, president, Bandy & Associates; author, Leadership on the Other Side "We desperately need this learn-and-listen approach to changing your world by changing your culture. The authors' mantra of 'it's easier to duplicate than incarnate' is destined to become an open sesame to new directions for churches of all sizes, and new outpourings of the Spirit." --Leonard Sweet, Drew Theological School, George Fox University; author, Post-Modern Pilgrims "This book is to the church world what the best corporate culture book is to the business world. It doesn't tell you to copy the best practices from corporate America. Instead, it invites you to create your own authentic culture." --Bob Buford, founder, Leadership Network; author, Finishing Well and Halftime "Culture Shift is exactly what happens to all healthy churches. The authors are like expert cultural geneticists. They skillfully model how to adjust the culture of your church until it births kingdom values in accordance with the Holy Spirit." Kirbyjon Caldwell, senior pastor, Windsor Village United Methodist Church; coauthor, Entrepreneurial Faith "Every local church has a unique calling and a unique DNA. The leader is responsible for creating the culture that activates God's calling and replicates apostolic DNA in the congregation. This is a must read for twenty-first century leaders." --Michael Slaughter, senior pastor, Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church; author, Spiritual Entrepreneurs "We often need to re-language our problems in order to get better solutions. Culture Shift provides us with a vocabulary to reshape the leadership discussion. You won't think about your congregation or your leadership challenge the same way after reading this book." --Reggie McNeal, director of leadership development, South Carolina Baptist Convention (ww.scbbaptist.org) "Every church I've seen that's effective in reaching people has a leader who intentionally or instinctively understands what this book shows you-the importance of creating a kingdom culture. Robert Lewis and Wayne Cordeiro are the best leaders I know for changing their own church culture into one of incarnational ministry that transforms lives." --Dale Galloway, dean, Beeson Institute for Advanced Church Leadership (www.beesoninstitute.org) "This book is an awesome tool for everyone involved in ministry. It will empower the body of Christ to look past ethnic differences and to embrace the needs of the different people that make up the modern church. It's thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking form cover to cover." --Matthew Barnett, senior pastor, Los Angeles Dream Center (www.dreamcenter.org)
