Publisher's Summary

Strategies for transforming a toxic church culture

Why is it that the best strategic plans and good leadership often are not able to move churches in the desired direction?

Sam Chand contends that toxic culture is to blame. Quite often, leaders don't sense the toxicity, but it poisons their relationships and derails their vision. This work describes five easily identifiable categories of church culture (inspiring-accepting-stagnant-discouraging-toxic), with diagnostic descriptions in the book and a separate online assessment tool. The listener will be able to identify strengths and needs of their church's culture, and then apply practical strategies (communication, control, and authority, selection and placement of personnel, etc.) to make their church's culture more positive.

  • Discusses how to diagnose the state of a church's culture
  • Reveals what it takes to put in place effective strategies for creating a more positive church culture
  • Author served on the board of EQUIP (Dr. John Maxwell's Ministry), equipping five million leaders world-wide.

This important book offers a clear guide for understanding and recreating a healthy church culture.

Rethinking the unthinkable

Dr. Chand brings a fresh perspective to who churches and organizations can move their goals and initiatives forward. He takes timeless wisdom, simplifies it, and presents it in everyday language that's understandable across the board. Great book!

I Had No Idea!!!

"I once was blind but now I see" are not just words to Amazing Grace but the reality I was leading my church in. This book opened my eyes to clear vision and leadership. A must read, especially for young pastors.
