Has God called you to do something beyond your qualifications? Are you drowning in a sea of expectations and self-doubt?
In The Grace Goes With the Chair, Colonel Lee S. Stu” Johnson shares what he has learned from decades of leadership service: it is our character, not our abilities, that qualifies us to lead. Give God your best, and He will empower you to get the job done.
Whether you are on the path to leadership in your workplace or in the church, The Grace Goes With the Chair will help you overcome fear and insecurity and see your potential as God does--limited only by your faith. If God called you to be a leader, be confident that you are the right person for the job.
Stu Johnson retired from the Air Force as a Colonel in 1999. During his thirty years of commissioned service, he led organizations of five to six thousand people and managed multimillion-dollar budgets. Stu also has forty years of Christian leadership experience, and currently serves as the Executive Administrator for Grace International Churches and Ministries, Inc. He and his wife, Debbe, have been married for forty-three years, and have two grown children and three delightful grandchildren.
The experiential scope of Stu Johnsons managerial and spiritual grasp as a leader provides a remarkably practical manual for all of us commissioned to lead. His background in both military and church leadership (presently staffed at a mega-church that also serves a huge church network) brings so much to the table that no reader will go away disappointed. Theres a fund of wisdom and resource here that will serve you for years to come.

Stu Johnson is one of the most gifted leaders of our day. Through his career in the Air Force leading thousands of troops and civilian employees and the last decade of overseeing thousands of pastors as the Executive Administrator of Grace International, he knows the "chair" of leadership better than anyone I know. For those who want to be effective leaders, learning from those who have mastered the journey is essential. From his many years of experience, Stu deals with a leaders personal development and how to develop tools and skills that cause people to willingly and faithfully follow. A must-read for every leader and for those aspiring to be!

Stu has put together much powerful wisdom and insight on how to be a more godly, and hence more effective, leader and team member. I used his book for our annual executive offsite, focusing on specific chapters selected by the team members. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the book, and we each came away with valuable insights and motivation on how to better incorporate God and His teachings in our day-to-day livesnot only as leaders and team members, but also as spouses, parents, friends and individuals.
