From the Back Cover
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.

I think the book would've been a better read if it was reduced by one third. One sixth of the book is about leading teams which I think was off topic.
It had some good insights but suffers from being too long.
This book was a refreshing look at how to focus less on paperwork and programs and focus on taking the time for solitude in the secret place with Jesus. I enjoyed this book very much and it gave me confidence that the time spent in quiet away from the noise of life studying the bible and praying is time well spent. This book is about refocusing and re-prioritising and essentially points to us the children of God remembering and returning to our first love; Jesus, to refresh and replenish our souls.
