• A call for new structure and ways of behaving as church by an experienced church officer

• Foreword by Stacy Sauls

Church-wide discussions continue about the emergent church, attracting young people, financial survival, corporate structure, relationships with the Anglican Communion, and other ongoing issues, while age-old behaviors and patterns continue to derail progress. This book offers concrete examples from a systems perspective as to how intentionality in leadership based on shared foundational theories has the potential to empower our church to be the transformative entity God called it to be.

She travels extensively throughout the Episcopal Church and beyond, giving workshops and consultations.  Her previous book, Becoming the Transformative Church: Beyond Sacred Cows, Fantasies and Fears is a best seller.

“Reading Becoming the Transformative Church by Kay Collier McLaughlin, I was amazed by her spirit, passion, and positive attitude in connecting the dots to present one of the finest books I have ever encountered. In her writing, she not only lays out a plan of action, but also provides the details of each subject. I recommend Becoming the Transformative Church without any reservation to anyone interested in becoming a leader in the church—or anywhere. ”

“I'm stunned at how relevant this very readable book will be to my corporate clients! The work of Friedman, whom we strongly reference in our practice with businesses, has not been integrated as well in any other source to my knowledge.  Highly recommended for those who are reaching for systemic understanding.”

As church-wide discussions continue about the emergent church, attracting young people, financial survival, corporate structure, relationships with the Anglican Communion, and other ongoing issues, this book endeavors to look at the behaviors and patterns that continue to derail the Church from a systems perspective. It then offers concrete examples as to how intentionality in leadership based on shared foundational theories has the potential to empower the church to be the transformative entity God called it to be.
