In a groundbreaking seven-year experience, Jim Herrington and Trisha Taylor led a cluster of churches in a process of personal and congregational transformation that is producing hope and health. Built on a sound understanding of learning organization theory, adaptive leadership, family systems theory, and recent discoveries in the neurosciences, Herrington and Taylor developed and refined a highly fruitful model of church renewal. This model begins with personal renewal in which congregations learn how to become learning communities and ends with church-wide transformation.
Learning Change is the pastor and congregational leaders' field guide to leading change. Each chapter provides training and information, an aspect of the learning change model, stories of real-life experiences in churches, and questions and suggestions for taking this information into a congregational context.

theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5An refreshing approach to leadership.August 22, 2017theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There really is a plethora of books on the topic of leadership, most of which focus on how to build teams up, develop other leaders and encourage and admonish others that you lead. This book is refreshingly different as the approach it takes starts with you as the leader and focuses on personal growth.
Divided into four main parts that first define the key concepts, the authors then move us into the core values of our design, progressing into how we think and then concluding with some excellent tools and ideas that will put us in a position where we can be more effective leaders. I really appreciate the challenging questions and Going Deeper portions of this book.
This book is very well written, but it really borders more on the academic level vs. something for someone who is a light reader. Filled with excellent examples and ideas for practical application, this book is an excellent tool to help your personal growth which leads toward congregational transformation. I would highly encourage anyone in Christian leadership who is serious about change to get a copy of this book in their hands.
I received a copy of this book from Kregel in exchange for my honest review.
richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Moving from a Program Driven Institution to a Learning CommunityJune 11, 2017richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Learning Change Congregational Transformation Fueled by Personal Renewal is made up of stories of church leaders who were able to transform their congregations by first making changes in their own lives.
Jim Herrington and Trisha Taylor worked in a collaborative effort to develop a process focused on personal and congregational transformation.
The book is divided into four parts: Part one establishes the keys to real change, defines the key concepts to change and introduces the changes necessary for personal transformation. Parts two and three emphasize four essential core values to reconnecting to our intended design and the mental models necessary for shifting the way we think. Part four provides for equipping ourselves for more effective leadership.
I found the features with suggestions for interactive engagement for a better understanding and further assessment of the material to be an invaluable asset for determining implementation, taking action and being authenticate in setting personal goals in creating inner change.
You will get the most benefit from your reading by setting aside an extended time regularly to follow the suggestions for reflections and going deeper, as you move forward in your personal renewal and actualizing authentic congregational transformation.
Learning Change Congregational Transformation Fueled by Personal Renewal is timely, relevant, and important; a must read for pastors, church staff, and lay leaders.
