Every Pastor's First 180 Days 

Dear Pastors and Ministry Leaders, 

We want to highlight the new book Every Pastor's First 180 Days by Pastor and Author Charles Stone (WestPark Church, London ON).

Tim Strickland, FEB Central Leadership Development Director writes, "Every Pastor's First 180 Days," is a fantastic onboarding book that is a must-read for any pastor making a move. However, it is also a valuable book for pastors in any stage of ministry, as it is filled with teachings that are applicable to church revitalization, leading change, and general leadership principles. I work with pastors who are making transitions to new roles, as well as pastors who are leading church revitalization, and I am planning to recommend it to all of them.

Charles has a unique way of integrating Biblical teaching, leadership principles, and insights from neuroscience that impact pastoral leadership. The book is Biblically grounded and filled with practical steps to take, and Charles has provided a host of free online tools to help with implementing its teachings. These tools are noted throughout the book and summarized in the final chapter for easy reference.

It is exciting to see what the Lord is doing through the leadership of Charles and his team at WestPark, with multiple congregations holding services in different languages every Sunday. They are reaching out in their community and seeing many people baptized. "Every Pastor's First 180 Days" is based in Charles' real-life ministry that is transforming many lives.

I wholeheartedly recommend "Every Pastors First 180 Days." It earned every one of the five stars I gave it!!
