Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Lance Witt understands both the dynamics of church ministry and the interior landscape of the soul. He has written wise counsel that addresses directly and transparently those parasites that seek to feed on a church leader's spirit."--John Ortberg, author, The Me I Want to Be

Every leader functions on two stages--the front stage and the back stage. The front stage is the public world of leadership. The back stage is the private world of the leader. There are many resources to help you succeed on the front stage. But who is talking to you about you and your backstage life?

In a caring, encouraging tone, Replenish shows you how to:

prioritize matters of the soul
develop healthy spiritual practices
address problems that lead to burnout
create a healthy rhythm in your life
craft a healthy leadership culture
develop better systems in your church
move toward an unhurried life

If you ever feel alone, in over your head, or simply in need of replenishment, this book will offer welcome relief and a healthy way forward.

"Like many in ministry, I've found myself drowning in techniques and tools to the neglect of my soul. Lance Witt has thrown a life preserver with a perfect toss. Grab on and let him pull you back to Jesus."--Will Mancini, author, Church Unique; founder of Auxano

"I will be taking our entire church staff through this book."--Todd Mullins, lead pastor, Christ Fellowship, West Palm Beach, Florida

"I think every leader should read this book at least once a year to recalibrate what we do with how and why we do it."--Chip Ingram, pastor, Venture Church; president of Living on the Edge

Founder of Replenish Ministries, Lance Witt is often called a "pastor's pastor." He has served for over thirty years as a pastor, twenty as a senior pastor. He also served as an executive and teaching pastor at Saddleback Church. Lance helped develop and lead the 40 Days of Purpose and 40 Days of Community campaigns. He and his wife, Connie, have two married children and love doing ministry together.

Lance Witt is a pastor to pastors. I've personally benefited from his wisdom and so have those Pastors in my coaching networks. Now he has made that wisdom available to us all in this highly anticipated book. If you are a pastor, get this book and let it feed your soul. If you know a pastor, honor them with the gift of this book."

Lance Witt is one of a kind pastor and mentor. I'd met him for the first time back in 2003 in saddleback church, california. He was for real. Authentic, good listener, and humane. No show off. I'd start paying attention to his teachings and deeds since then whether small groups, preaching or the 40 Days of Purpose Campaign. His book summarized perfectly what is going on in pastor's lifes for the last two decades. We are actuallt facing the worst crisis of integrity in church life. Not because of moral conduct like stealing or cheating but mostly because there are more and more pastor who drift away from a personal relationship with Jesus. Ministry is getting so busy, we do not pay attention to our souls. We are careless and this is costing us our spirituality, family and churches. We are running empty, and Lance really know why and how. This is not just a book to point out problems, it brings real effective solutions to most of us pastors and leaders. I celebrate this and plan to recommend it to everybody I know.

It's a very sincere acknowledgement of the writer's failure to give attention for many years to some very important things (the most important better said) and also a very needed alarm signal for those who are in ministry but live a very superficial spiritual life filled with a lot of (good) activities but little care for their own souls and thus with little true spiritual power.

Lance has put into words so many thoughts and feelings that many in ministry experience. He is honest and raw, challenging and encouraging, and always points you right back to the answer ... Jesus and doing what you do to bring glory to His name.

This is a "must read" for everyone in ministry. I am currently going through it with our entire pastoral staff.

If you lead a staff care for them and take the time to read this together. Its easy to make it about the programs and not the people but we can't refresh anyone when we are running on empty, selfcare isn't selfish.

This book helps you embrace the truth of caring for your own soul. Too many times we run on the treadmill of DO and forget to BE.
