My friend, Scott Wilson just wrote another book. This one is through Zondervan and is called “Steering Through Chaos“. We’ve all heard the saying, “Change is good.” But it can also feel frightening. In the midst of a transition, many church leaders struggle with clouded vision and doubt that they have a real, authentic calling from God. According to Scott Wilson, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can maintain a crystal-clear vision during times of change and transition, and boost your church’s momentum rather than start to drift.
Addressing common transitions such as the building of new facilities, changing of staff structure, addition of new services and becoming a multi-site ministry, Steering Through Chaos is the ideal resource for a church staff or leadership team facing the challenges of change now, or the inevitable change to come.
Scott draws from his 20-plus years of pastoral experience, but also taps the expertise of other seasoned leaders like Larry Osborne (North Coast), Dino Rizzo (Healing Place), and Tim Stevens (Granger). Each leader shares key principles he’s gleaned from helping his own church navigate change. Scott shares a little bit about the book and a glimpse into his heart in this video HERE.
Scott and his church brought me in to do a secret shopper last Fall and I had the honor of helping them do what they do better. You can read Scott’s words on my visit HERE. I’m reading this book and I encourage you to do the same. You can get your copy of the book HERE.
