Christian leadership is noble work, but it is also a daunting responsibility. Leaders often struggle to understand how the Spirit is working through their ministry. Mentoring Matters looks at how leaders can maximize their potential so that they can thrive in ministry. Author Rick Lewis goes beyond the issues of basic leadership skills to address leaders' personal needs-their spirituality, emotional health, key relationships, vulnerabilities, and rhythms of life.

"A joy to read. I particularly like his emphasis on being -- the core of a leader -- vs. doing -- accomplishments and career goals. I congratulate Rick on this soulful, well-crafted work."
Sally Morgenthaler
Author, Worship Evangelism

"Rick imparts a deeply personalized understanding of the processes of mentoring and coaching leaders at every level of Christian organization. A great discipling tool for the 21st century church."
Alan Hirsch
Author, The Forgotten Ways

"Reading this book was like having a coffee with a mentor. His helpful stories illustrate principles while making mentoring accessible to all."
Dr Carson Pue
Author, Mentoring Leaders

"A most comprehensive treatment. Rick provides a sound biblical basis, emphasises the pivotal role of the Holy Spirit, and gives practical insights and resources to guide mentors."
Revd Dr John Mallison
Medal of the Order of Australia

"An outstanding contribution to the important practice of mentoring. I highly recommend it."
Mark Conner
CityLife Church, Melbourne

"With great clarity and insight, based on impeccable research and analysis, Rick has written a most comprehensive and useful book. When you have finished reading Mentoring Matters, you'll be inspired and empowered to either be a mentor or be mentored. It really is that good."
Peter McHugh
Christian City Church Whitehorse, Melbourne
