Product Description

Does your leadership style fit new ways of doing church--leadership that is organic and elasticand that finds ways to seize God-given opportunities? Looking back and drawing on the ancient Christian tradition, Bob Whitesel describes seven traits for successful leadership, which he characterizes by seven symbols:

O (the Greek symbol theta)--the first letter of the Greek word "theos" stresses that God is the source of the burden for others and provides the powerto help them.

Rx (the medical prescription symbol)--an emphasis on addressing the spiritual and physical health of leaders.

G (a stylized "G" for "graffiti")--the edgy, colorful, and artful collages that help define contemporary organizations.

A (inspired by the recycle symbol)--the idea of recycling places, experiences and people rather than discarding them.

N-- emerging networks that connect people more quickly, efficiently, precisely and continuously.

I-- an emphasis on "incarnation", a going "in the flesh" to serve others rather than sending surrogates.

X (the Jerusalem crosswith a number in each quadrant)--four types of measurement observed inJerusalem (Acts 2:42-47), which at their core point to Christ's work on the cross.

Taken together, thesesymbols spell out the word “organix” and represent a fundamentally new way tothink about your church and how you can best lead.
