"Succession planning isn't something people want to talk about, but it's a looming crisis. NEXT is a unique tool for helping pastors and church boards think through this crucial issue."
-Rick Warren, Founding Pastor of Saddleback Church
"Every pastor will face a transition at their church, and it will be one of their best chances at leaving a legacy. NEXT is an invaluable tool for securing a transition that works and a legacy that lasts."
-Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church
"In the Kingdom of God, success equals succession - looking for a successor all the time. NEXT shows pastors how to do that for themselves, and how to model succession for their staff and volunteer leaders."
-Mark Batterson, Founding Pastor of National Community Church
"Wisdom around pastoral succession is one of the great needs of the church today, so it's about time this book showed up. I have already sent a copy to several of the elders at my church."
-John Ortberg, Pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
