Una sabiduría probada, procedente de tres veteranos líderes de la Iglesia«Yo he rogado por ti, que tu fe no falte; y tú, una vez vuelto, confirma a tus hermanos».En Lucas 22, Jesús le advierte a Pedro que muy pronto tendrá que pasar por una prueba; será zarandeado para probar su fe y para que su debilidad quede al descubierto. Pero también le da aliento, diciéndole que en esa época de desilusión y de fracaso, se volverá más dependiente de Dios y les podrá ministrar mejor a los demás.En Zarandeados, el pastor Wayne Cordeiro ofrece este mismo aliento, diciéndoles la verdad con amor a los que luchan con los desafíos del ministerio en la iglesia, ofreciéndoles ejemplos personales de su propio caminar, y preparándolos a enfrentarse a las dificultades y a las angustias que trae consigo el ser líderes de una iglesia y comenzar nuevos ministerios. Con relatos y conceptos adicionales, procedentes de Francis Chan y Larry Osborne, en cada capítulo hay preguntas que hacen pensar al lector y lo desafían a desarrollar un corazón sometido a Dios, enfocado en «ser y llegar a ser», en lugar de centrarse en «hacer y lograr».Este libro no es una especie de manual lleno de modelos y métodos. Zarandeados desafía cuantas cosas usted ha considerado hasta ahora como éxitos y lo exhorta a comprender que no está solo en las situaciones por las que pasa como líder. Cordeiro, Chan y Osborne le ofrecen una sabiduría a largo plazo que lo puede preparar mejor para una vida de ministerio sometida a Dios.
Francis Chan (born 1967) is the former founding pastor and teaching pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California. After being raised by his Buddhist grandmother in Hong Kong, Francis came to America at the age of five. His mother, stepmother and father all tragically died before his 13th birthday. Francis came to know the Lord in high school and in 1994 he and his wife Lisa started Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley. From just 30 original attendees, Cornerstone grew to 1,600 members by 2000. Francis stepped down from his role at Cornerstone in 2010 - by which time the church had 4,000 regular attendees. He believed God was calling him and his wife to take a 'step of faith' to launch a new ministry as an extension of Cornerstone Church, in a large city in America. Since 2011, Chan has concentrated his church planting efforts on San Francisco, where he has been involved in Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, a multiethnic, non-denominational evangelical church.
At Cornerstone Francis started up diverse and influential ministries including Cornerstone Television and Eternity Bible College (from 2004). He has been a highly sought-after speaker at many Christian colleges and youth conferences in the US and internationally. His commitment is to teach directly from the Bible and his passion is to see the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus.
Francis is committed to radical gospel-centred generosity in relation to his own finances. He gives away the majority of his income to charities, including the royalties from sales of his books and training resources. He is on the board of directors for Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact. Francis has used astute investments in restaurants and real estate to finance his own mission outreach efforts.
Francis is the best-selling author of several books, teaching DVDs and study guides. His book Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God has topped a million sales since its release in 2009, and all the proceeds are donated to charity. With an authentic message, a radical call to true faith and a dare to fall head over heels in love with God, Crazy Love's challenge has resonated in hearts of all ages.
Francis and his wife Lisa, have seven children, and live in San Francisco.
