Off-Road Disciplines: Spiritual Adventures of Missional Leaders

by Earl Creps

Earl Creps explores 12 central spiritual disciplines—six personal and six organizational—(death, truth, perspective, assessment, learning, harmony, witness, reflection, opportunity, sacrifice, and legacy) that Christian leaders of all ages and denominations need if they are to change themselves and their churches to reach out to the culture around them. Each chapter depicts one of those “off-road” disciplines and provides a map of the cultural terrain leaders must navigate, offering insight on the ways in which the process of personal spiritual formation can lead to changes in organizations.

“Earl Creps has written a deeply personal and challenging book–one that caused me to think about my own spiritual journey. Too many of us have made spiritual formation a series of activities and programs; Earl takes us off the map of common practice and into the places where the Spirit is at work. It reminds us that true spiritual formation pervades our lives and the ministries we serve, providing a helpful balance of being and doing. It will be a great encouragement to all who read it.” –Ed Stetzer, author, Breaking the Missional Code
