Change Agents are pioneers, entrepreneurs, innovators. They can be difficult, annoying, and demanding, but their calling is demanding too: to take a vision and wrench it into reality.

When Steve Chalke was asked to be the senior minister of a dying inner-city church, he knew what he wanted: to make it into a Christian equivalent of a first-century synagogue. A place where community gathered, not just to pray and hear sermons, but to be educated, entertained, and find help.

In Change Agents, the author shares twenty-five lessons he learned during this work. He had to teach himself to respond, not react; say no more than yes, give up being everyone's friend, and accept that any success was only a short respite between two crises.

Employing wry humour, personal examples, and a large helping of practical advice, Steve Chalke reminds us our enterprise, not our caution, with the Word of God is what's rewarded.

Publisher Synopsis: A change agent wants to alter the way the world works. Creative, driven, difficult, these people have visions that they wrench into reality. Steve Chalke turned a church into the hub of its inner-city community. In Change Agents, he shares lessons he learned - hard-won, wryly told, and immensely practical - as his vision took form and life.
