Bob Whitesel, one of the church's foremost experts on leadership, growth, and change, offers help for pastors and congregation leaders who struggle to develop effective strategies for reaching today's generation with the good news of Jesus Christ. This book defines and describes the journey most people in today's culture follow as they move from a lack of awareness of the gospel through conversion to spiritual maturity. Whitesel identifies distinct stages or "waypoints" in this journey and helps church leaders understand how to guide seekers in taking the next step from where they are. Filled with interviews and personal stories from Shane Claiborne, Dan Kimball, Lauren Winner, Scot McKnight, and more, this engaging book will help congregations build on their strengths to develop a comprehensive and holistic strategy for guiding people through the stages of their journey toward spiritual maturity.
