"Winning on Purpose" offers leaders a way to organize congregations for success by creating structures that enable church life and health. As a comprehensive and powerful application of the biblical call to mission, "Winning on Purpose" sets forth the Accountable Leadership strategy.

I love the book in and of itself. It is very clear and concise as to both theory and process for pursuing the Accountable Leadership process.
My one bug with the book is that there is little in the way of any Biblical study and underpinning to this. I find that too bad because it is a good organizational model that can be demonstrated from Biblical principles. It would have been immensely helpful to have more on that end.
That does not diminish my rating since what the book proposes to do it does very well. I highly recommend this book to church leadership both staff and lay leaders.

The title and cover are horrible. Had a friend not recommended the book, I would have never read it. The content of the book, however, is amazing. Well done and very, very helpful. Every church leader should read this book.
