Leadership is one of the most demanding roles one can occupy. The interior, personal life of the leader is often scrutinized and certainly plays a significant role in the success or failure of a ministry. What most people fail to realize is that church leaders are just like everyone else. They are not immune to the problems faced by those who follow them. They often come from dysfunctional family backgrounds; experienced traumatic events in childhood, or just get worn out from the demands of ministry. These experiences shape the inner life of the leader and are formational for the leader's soul and personality. The pressures of ministry, even very successful ministries, will exert a weight on the soul of a leader causing it to crack. If these cracks are not healed, they become wider and weaken the leader, often leading to failure or moral breakdown. In this book, the author offers insights into the experiences of several people, most of whom occupied leadership positions. He provides thoughtful perspectives on the root causes of the problems experienced by them and the impact on those who followed them. Like Jesus, we are to be "scarred" healers, not wounded ones. A scar is a healed wound. As scars mark and confirm the identity of our Savior, so they mark and confirm the identity of all who follow Him in serving as leaders. May this book equip leaders with valuable insights, enabling them to move from being wounded to being healed, resulting in many years of fruitful, productive and God-honoring ministry. While not an exhaustive treatment of this important topic, may it provide a starting point on your journey toward healing.
Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with her life. She felt like a single parent raising her four young daughters alone. She finally told her husband, “I quit,” and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her and her marriage for the better. In this eight-session video Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Geri provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This study is for every woman who thinks, “I can’t keep pretending everything is fine!” The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else’s life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life. When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you’re on the path not only to emotional health, but also to the true purpose of your life.

From a veteran Cru staff member, Bible teacher, and popular speaker comes an invitation for Christian women to discover how yielding ourselves wholly to God, especially in the midst of challenging circumstances, lends new purpose to our lives. We know that the center of God's will is the best place to be, but surrender is easier said than done. A host of hurdles, from busyness and bitterness to complacency and control, can prevent us from moving where He directs. In this challenging yet warmhearted book, Vivian Mabuni provides an authentic look at what it means to willingly risk saying yes to whatever God asks--and highlights a practical path to the deeper joy of a yielded life.
What factors contribute to active Christians in ministry leaving their church and becoming exiting statistics? Every year dedicated Christian people leave churches because of spiritual abuse. The stories of people who left their home church because of a negative and hurtful experience paint a picture of a widespread occurrence which beckons consideration by church leaders and church congregants alike. Spiritual abuse, the misuse of spiritual authority to maltreat followers in the Christian Church, is a complex issue. This book shows how people processed their grief after experiencing spiritual abuse in their local church and how they rediscovered spiritual harmony. Their spiritual journey shows how one may grow through this devastating experience. This book offers a thoughtful look at the topic of spiritual recovery from clergy abuse through the eyes of those who have experienced it. It invites church leaders to consider this very real dysfunction in the Church today and aims to demonstrate a path forward to greater freedom in Christ after a season of disillusionment with church leadership.
