"In Luke 22, Jesus warns Peter that he will soon face a trial-a season of sifting in which his faith will be tested and his weaknesses exposed. But Jesus also encourages him, that through this season of disappointment and failure he will grow in his dependence on God and be better able to minister to others. In Sifted, pastor Wayne Cordeiro offers this same encouragement, speaking the truth in love to those struggling with the challenges of church ministry, offering personal insight from his own journey and preparing leaders to face the difficulties and hardships of leading churches and starting new ministries. With additional stories and insights from Francis Chan and Larry Osborne, each chapter includes thought-provoking and challenging questions to develop a heart that is surrendered to God, focused on "being and becoming" instead of on "doing and accomplishing." This is not a how-to audiobook on models and methods; instead, Sifted challenges your scorecard of success and encourages you to realize that you are not alone in what you are experiencing as a leader. Cordeiro, Chan, and Osborne provide wisdom for the long haul that can better position you for a life of ministry surrendered to God. "There are lots of books about how to 'do church.' Sifted is a very rare opportunity for self-assessment. You couldn't have three better guides than Wayne Cordeiro, Francis Chan, and Larry Osborne." -Bob Buford Founder of Leadership Network and author of Halftime and Finishing Well "
