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.

I read this from my smartphone after a recommendation from our Bishop. It was a good summary of a pastor's /leaders retreat and helpful for any Christian leader or worker/missionary/servant of Christ.

As a pastor of 15 years I could relate to so much of this book. It is so easy to get so busy in the ministry that you lose your first love. Lance Witt helps you take a step back and examine how you can breathe health and life back into your everyday routine.

There's some gold in here but way too much dross.

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.

Get this book. It's an awesome resource for pastors - senior, associate, youth, children's. Tooo often we forget about caring for our souls. We are so busy focusing on church and ministry that we forget that ministry flows from the overflow of our own hearts. Very well written book.

I read "Replenish" after coming out of a hard ministry at a large church that almost took me out and am finding my soul and health again in a smaller assignment. This book has helped me recalibrate the definition of true success in ministry. I've read this book twice, discussed it with other friends in ministry, and have given it as a gift. Practical, concise, devotional, refreshing.

Lance addresses the issues most pastors, leaders and full-time minister face as though he were looking your appointment calendar! Listen to his wise counsel think about the questions he surfaces. You will be stronger in your faith and in your service as a result.

Witt writes honestly about good things, but the book seems simplistic, repetitive, and insubstantial. Lots of others have said what he is trying to say, and said it a lot better, whether classic authors like Bridges, or modern authors like Piper, Buchanan, or Peterson. If you just want something light and quick this is fine, but I wish I hadn't spent $10 on it.

This book was recommended to me by the pastor of our congregation, who herself is an inspiration in humility and determination. This book highlights the importance of leading a healthy prayer life, cleaning up your heart before Jesus in leadership and treating those in our care as precious and not as slave labour and leading them to develop their own relationship with Jesus.
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.
