"This is one of the most exciting books I have read in years. It shifts our focus from doing church to being church and promises to be a standard reference in all future discussions of missional leadership."
—Leonard Sweet, Drew University, George Fox University; author,Out of theQuestion . . . Into the Mystery: Getting Lost in the GodLife Relationship

"If you are trying to figure out what is going on in contemporary culture, you've got to read Off-Road Disciplines. Creps not only knows what is going on today, he teaches us how to engage today's people as well. The chapter on "reverse mentoring" is worth the price of the book. No one can be effective in ministry today without the skills and attitudes associated with listening and conversation. Off-Road Disciplines gives us the map and points us in the right direction."
—Todd Hunter, national director, Alpha USA, former national director, Vineyard USA

"No matter how hard the leadership industry tries to refine the key ingredient in effectiveness, a transformed leader is always the precursor to a transformed church or organization. Because Earl Creps actually listens to the hearts of emerging leaders, he has discovered spiritual pathways that are being more traveled these days. Here's a leadership book that actually believes substance trumps style!"
—Byron D. Klaus, president, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary

"Earl Creps has written a deeply personal and challenging book—one that caused me to think about my own spiritual journey. Too many of us have made spiritual formation a series of activities and programs; Earl takes us off the map of common practice and into the places where the Spirit is at work. It reminds us that true spiritual formation pervades our lives and the ministries we serve, providing a helpful balance of being and doing. It will be a great encouragement to all who read it."
—Ed Stetzer, author, Breaking the Missional Code

review by . June 17, 2010
The American church is in crisis. Sunday morning worship attendance figures are declining. But interest in God and spiritual matters is increasing.    A typical pastoral response to this crisis asks, "How should we do our worship services?" In Off-Road Disciplines, Earl Creps suggests a better question: "How can I be changed so that others will find me worth following in mission?" (3, emphasis in original). The former question focuses on technique, while the latter question focuses …
