Seminar Highlights Professor’s
“This is one of the most exciting books I have read in years,” said Leonard Sweet of George Fox University. “It shifts our focus from doing church to being church and promises to be a standard reference in all future discussions of missional leadership.”
Off-Road Disciplines: Spiritual Adventures of Missional Leaders, by Dr. Earl Creps, director of doctoral studies at AGTS, was released in September 2006 by Jossey-Bass and Leadership Network. Since its release, Off-Road Disciplines has made it to the top 200 best-selling books on Amazon.com and is Jossey-Bass’s third best selling book.
On October 27, AGTS hosted a seminar highlighting the new book. Over 170 people attended three sessions. Dr. Creps interviewed his “reverse mentors,” Joel and Rachel Triska (pictured at right), one of the young couples who have been his connection to cross-generational ministry.
In Off-Road Disciplines, Creps explores 12 spiritual disciplines that can reshape Christian leaders and their ministries to engage the culture around them. He provides a map of the cultural terrain leaders must navigate, with insights on how the process of personal spiritual formation can transform organizations.
Todd Hunter, national director of Alpha USA and former national director of Vineyard USA said, “Creps not only knows what is going on today, he teaches us how to engage today’s people as well… The chapter on ‘reverse mentoring’ is worth the price of the book.”
