Publisher's Summary

Explorers Lewis and Clark had to adapt. While they had prepared to find a waterway to the Pacific Ocean, instead they found themselves in the Rocky Mountains. You too may feel that you are leading in a cultural context you were not expecting. You may even feel that your training holds you back more often than it carries you along. Drawing from his extensive experience as a pastor and consultant, Tod Bolsinger brings decades of expertise in guiding churches and organizations through uncharted territory. He offers a combination of illuminating insights and practical tools to help you reimagine what effective leadership looks like in our rapidly changing world. If you're going to scale the mountains of ministry, you need to leave behind canoes and find new navigational tools. Listening to this book will set you on the right course to lead with confidence and courage.

absolutely amazing thought-provoking book

Even though the author and I share disagreements on church polity and how things should be handled, the parallel with Lewis and Clark as a road map into expanding the Christian church deserves careful thought and consideration.

Required reading for leaders feeling stuck

If you are someone who feel that your ministry is stuck because the leadership tools you possess don’t seem to be working then this book is a must read. The principles Tod brings out illuminate the terrain the western church finds itself in. And the material he presents is extremely helpful in taking a step towards a healthier, and more adaptive, leadership approach.
