Replenish: Leading From a Healthy Soul

Replenish: Leading From a Healthy Soul

$19.99

Paperback
Experienced pastor sounds the alarm about dangers that threaten the soul of a leader, offering hope for a sustainable and enjoyable life. Every leader functions on two stages--the front stage or public world, and the back stage or private world. One cannot lead successfully front stage when one is completely depleted back stage. In a time when pastors are leaving the ministry in record numbers due to cynicism, disillusionment, weariness, and personal scandals, there is an urgent need for soul care in the private lives of leaders.

Replenish helps leaders focus on the back stage, the interior life, in order to remain spiritually healthy. In a caring, encouraging tone, it will show pastors how to

- prioritize matters of the soul
- develop healthy spiritual practices
- address problems that lead to burnout
- create a healthy rhythm in their lives
- improve their people skills and the spiritual climate of their team
- develop better systems in their churches
- discover how to lead an unhurried life

For the many ministry leaders who feel alone, in over their heads, or simply worn out, this book will offer welcome relief and a healthy way forward.

"Lance Witt understands both the dynamics of church ministry and the interior landscape of the soul. He has written wise counsel that addresses directly and transparently those parasites that seek to feed on a church leader's spirit."--John Ortberg, author, The Me I Want to Be

"Like many in ministry, I've found myself drowning in techniques and tools to the neglect of my soul. Lance Witt has thrown a life preserver with a perfect toss. Grab on and let him pull you back to Jesus."--Will Mancini, author, Church Unique; founder of Auxano

"I will be taking our entire church staff through this book."--Todd Mullins, lead pastor, Christ Fellowship, West Palm Beach, Florida

"I think every leader should read this book at least once a year to recalibrate what we do with how and why we do it."--Chip Ingram, pastor, Venture Church; president of Living on the Edge
