NEWTON 978-0-8254-4464-7 • $18.99 Paperback • 6 x 9 • 240 pages Christian Ministry / Discipleship Kregel Ministry Rights: World Available Young emerging leaders of the church, many of whom have gone through leadership training and traditional mentorship programs, too often find themselves unprepared for the real- ities of ministry. Phil Newton reveals a critical gap in most training programs: single-source mentorship is incomplete. Mentoring must involve the congregation, not just senior pastors, in order to bring forth mature, resilient leaders pre- pared for all that ministry entails. The Mentoring Church offers churches of any size both a vision for mentoring future lead- ers and a workable template to follow. Bringing up future leaders isn’t just the job of the pastor but of the whole congregation. This is an urgently needed book in churches today. —R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary Phil A. Newton (PhD, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary; DMin, Fuller Theological Seminary) is senior pas- tor at South Woods Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee. His previous publications include Elders in Congregational Life. LEARNING CHANGE Congregational Transformation Fueled by Personal Renewal JIM HERRINGTON & TRISHA TAYLOR 978-0-8254-4455-5 • $18.99 Paperback • 6 x 9 • 272 pages Christian Church / Leadership Kregel Ministry Rights: World Available In a groundbreaking seven-year program, the authors led a cluster of churches through a process of personal and con- gregational transformation that is still producing hope and health in the congregations. From this they developed and refined a highly fruitful model of church renewal. This model begins with individual change in which church members learn how to become learning communities and ends with church-wide revitalization. Learning Change is a field guide for pastors and congrega- tional leaders to lead change. Each chapter provides training, an aspect of the learning change model, stories of real-life experiences in churches, and questions and suggestions for taking this model into a church context. Jim Herrington (DMin, Houston Graduate School of Theology) is founder and team leader at Faithwalking, a lead- ership training organization. Trisha Taylor (MA, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) is a counselor, author, consultant, and speaker based in Houston, Texas. Jim and Trisha’s previous publica- tions include The Leader’s Journey: Accepting the Call to Personal and Congregational Transformation.
