Publisher's Summary

You've probably noticed....

Churches aren't growing.

Young adults are walking away.

Volunteers are hard to recruit.

Leaders are burning out.

And the culture is changing faster than ever before.

There's no doubt the church is in a moment in history for which few church leaders are prepared.

You can look for answers, but the right response depends on having the right conversation.

In Lasting Impact, Carey Nieuwhof leads you and your team through seven conversations that will help your church grow and have a lasting impact.

What if....

  • Having the right conversations could change your trajectory?
  • There was more hope than you realized?
  • The potential to grow was greater than the potential to decline?
  • Your community was waiting for a church to offer the hope they're looking for?
  • Your best days as a church were ahead of you?

Maybe the future belongs to the churches that are willing to have the most honest conversations at a critical time. That's what Lasting Impact is designed to facilitate.

So much better than I anticipated

Judging from the description of the book, I was hopeful that the content would be strong and applicable to the circumstances that I was applying it to. What I was not expecting to find was an excellent voice telling the story, audibly and from a content perspective. At some point early on it became obvious that much of the book was an audible version of the author's blog. I wasn't sure how I felt about that upon hearing it but as the book continued I appreciated the voice and the perspective from which each chapter and portion was written. I highly recommend listening to this if you were interested in changing your church I highly recommend listening to this if you are interested in changing your church or leadership style for the better

Practical & Tough

This book should be required reading for spiritual leaders and their staff. Some of the discussion is tough, but much needed. As a senior leader, I'm challenged to grow and change. Some of these concepts we have done well, others I see the need for improvement. Get the book and read it slowly.

A Must Listen to Book

Carey reads this book in an engaging way that made it easy to listen to and remember (for a non-auditory learner). The information is very inspiring and helpful.

Excellent helpful book from a pastor to pastors

I've been familiar with Pastor Nieuwhof through his blog and podcast, so I was very excited about this book.The fact that he narrated the audio version was an added Plus.
The thrust of this work are the conversations that he believes every church needs to have and continue to have.
It is not a book about "do what I did" but rather the questions we all need to be confronting personally and with our leadership.

I was glad I purchased this volume, and have already begun recommending it to others.

One of the Best Pastoral-Team-Leadership Books Ever Written

This is the first review I've ever written for any of the many hundreds of products I've purchased over the years. There was so much good, helpful, eye-opening, non-intimidating, easy-actionable material in this book to help me, my leadership team and my church become healthy and navigate growth. I've just completed the audiobook format, and am going to order some print copies so we can work on each of the chapters following the detailed action steps included. Well-written, well-narrated, a must listen/read for every senior pastor!
