"Uplifting and Practical"

This book is an uplifting story and practical guide, based on Rev. Gordon Dragt’s personal experiences, of how to become a successful transformational leader. Throughout his story of how he rebuilt a dying church in NYC, Dragt includes helpful tips and techniques on how to overcome challenges any leader might come across and to be successful in today’s multicultural and multiracial society. He discusses the importance of diversity, intentional leadership, and the arts in building a successful church. While the book's main audience are clergy, seminary and theological school students, and lay church leaders; it can also be a valuable resource for leading a conference/workshop on diversity, transformational leadership, and use of the arts in teaching/worship.
