Abstract:

"Pastors and ministry leaders too often play the comparison game, looking to church leadership rockstars and curtailing idiosyncrasies to be like them. But it's a losing game. Leaders end up trying vainly to lead their churches from a lack of gifts and a place of emptiness. What is the solution? Quirkiness. Leaders need permission to lead not like someone else, but as the best possible version of themselves - embracing idiosyncrasies, personalities, and personal tastes. When church leaders name their quirks, they are free to discover a unique leadership philosophy and find unique missional opportunities. Quirky Leadership raises the bar for ministry - not by jumping through more hoops or focusing on gift deficits but rather by identifying, communicating, and celebrating the individual truths about identities and for ministry environments. John Voelz is quickly becoming a source for practical leadership perspective as a voice that questions the status quo, calls out mediocrity, and gives permission to view things differently and watch crazy ideas come to fruition for the sake of God's kingdom."--Book description, Amazon.com.
