Product Description

Earl Creps is known for his work in connecting the younger generation of postmoderns with their Boomer predecessors. The author of Off-Road Disciplines, Creps, in this new book, takes up the topic of how older church leaders can learn from younger leaders who are more conversant with culture, technology, and social context. In addition to making the benefits of what he calls "reverse mentoring" apparent, he also makes it accessible by offering practical steps to implement this discipline at both personal and organizational levels, particularly in communication, evangelism, and leadership.

Publisher's Description

Earl Creps is known for his work in connecting the youngergeneration of postmoderns with their Boomer predecessors. Theauthor of Off-Road Disciplines, Creps, in this new book,takes up the topic of how older church leaders can learn fromyounger leaders who are more conversant with culture, technology,and social context.

Creps' new book is a topic of interest both inside and outsidethe church as older leaders realize that they're not "getting it"when it comes to technologies (iPod, IM, blogging) or culturalissues such as the fact that younger people see the world in anentirely different way.

He has pastored three churches (oneBoomer, one Builder, on X'er) and is currently a church planter inBerkeley, California.
