Here’s what leaders are saying about the book:

“Leading Change Without Losing It is a practical guide to help church leaders of every kind navigate change in the face of opposition. Because so many church leaders are trying to transition an existing ministry rather than start a new one, this book comes at a critical time. The five strategies Carey outlines are practical and applicable to virtually any organization.”  — Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor, North Point Ministries

“If you lead in the church, you need this book. Leading through change is an inevitable part of church ministry and how you navigate these difficult waters will many times determine the legacy that you leave.” –– Pete Wilson, Pastor, Cross Point Church, author of Plan B, co-author of Empty Promises

“I made a long list of leaders I know who need to read Leading Change Without Losing It. Carey Nieuwhof is both deep and practical — an unbeatable combination.” — Kara Powell, Executive Director, Fuller Youth Institute, co-author of Sticky Faith

“…A masterpiece to help young leaders like me not completely blow it when it comes to leading through change. I’m buying cases for our team and clients.” — Casey Graham, Co-founder, Giving Rocket and Preaching Rocket

“Wow! Did Carey write this for me? Carey’s book gave me new encouragement, even before I pursue my next God-given dream. Something tells me, this book is going to have the same impact on you. Read this book!”Ron Edmondson, pastor, leadership consultant, and blogger

“Carey is an incredible leader who has an uncanny gift for articulating difficult issues and providing practical solutions. Carey has done a brilliant job of providing clear steps that every leader would be wise to follow.”
— Joe Sangl, President and CEO, Injoy Stewardship Solutions

“Leading through change is one of the most important, and one of the most challenging, calls any Christian leader will ever face. Carey Nieuwhof provides you with the inspiration you’ll need to stay the course, but more importantly with practical tools you’ll need to complete the task.”— W. Scott Cochrane, Executive Director, The Leadership Centre Willow Creek Canada

Leading Change Without Losing It was written for leaders who dream of change, but face resistance in implementing it. How do leaders navigate that, without giving up their dream for what could and should be?

The book examines five strategies that help church leaders lead change:

  1. Determine who is for (or against) the change and why.
  2. Decide where to focus your attention.
  3. Develop the questions that will set your course.
  4. Learn to attack problems instead of people.
  5. Persevere until the critical breakthrough.

Insightful and highly practical, Leading Change Without Losing It offers hope and encouragement for leaders, no matter where they serve in the church. For more information about the book, visit www.leadingchangewithoutlosingit.com.

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity

I am also co-author of Parenting Beyond Your Capacity with Reggie Joiner.

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity explores the impact that happens when the influences of church and family combine.  As much as parents are tempted to think otherwise, no one has more influence in the life of a child than a parent.

But what do you do with that influence? In the book, Reggie and I explore five family values that, when embraced by church leaders and parents together, can revolutionize faith in the next generation.

The values urge parents and church leaders together to:

  1. Widen the Circle
  2. Imagine the End
  3. Fight for the Heart
  4. Create a Rhythm
  5. Make it Personal

Here’s what people are saying about Parenting Beyond Your Capacity

“As a dad to six kids, nothing is more important to Amy and me than passing on our faith to the next generation of Groeschels. Reggie and Carey offer simple, solid steps to make that goal a reality for parents from any background.” – Craig Groeschel, founding and senior pastor of LifeChurch.

“As one of the founders of North Point Community Church and a proven innovator in family ministry, Reggie Joiner is in a terrific position to offer insight into how churches and families can align their strategy for the benefit of preschoolers, children, and teenagers.” – John C. Maxwell, best-selling author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

“If you are a parent and desire a close relationship with your children, this book is a must-read. Parenting is tough, and my life is so busy that I sometimes feel overwhelmed by parenting; sometimes I get so out of balance that I get discouraged. But this book will motivate you. This book will encourage you. If you want to stay focused on what really matters and move your relationship with your children in the right direction, this is the book for you.” – Joel Manby, CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment and father of four girls

“I love Reggie and Carey. And by the time you are a dozen or more pages into this book, you are going to love ‘em too! In Parenting Beyond Your Capacity, they provide us with a practical and revolutionary approach to the responsibility most of us find daunting—parenting. At the heart of this book are five family values that I’m convinced will equip you to be successful throughout your child’s development.” Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor, North Point Community Church
