In Steering through Chaos, Pastor Scott Wilson helps you, whether you are a fellow pastor or part of a church staff or leadership team, plan for change and develop a communication strategy that enlists support and builds momentum to lead individuals or entire congregations through the transition. Scott provides you as a leader the insight, inspiration, and courage you need to make the difficult choices that will keep your church moving forward. The challenges of leadership often multiply during times of transition. Blending perceptive, visionary principles with a passion to please God, Scott Wilson examines how to effectively lead your church through the process of change. Transitions addressed include the building of new facilities, the changing of staff structure, the addition of new services, and the transition to becoming a multisite ministry, among others. Each chapter includes discussion questions, making this an ideal resource for you, your staff, and your leadership team to read together. During the struggles of transition, doubts and fears will inevitably arise. At those moments, leaders need assurance that they have a real and authentic vision from God. Scott encourages you to follow the call and to lead with confidence, courage, and an unwavering commitment to push through the challenges that come with change.
