Water Under the Bridge (Loads of Other Stuff Too) - Don Barry


A Journey into Values-Shaped Leadership.

This is the story of lessons learnt - with some blood, sweat and tears - during 40 years of pastoral ministry. With sincere honesty, Don Barry lays open his challenges, failures and successes, taking us on a journey that saw a lot of water under the bridge - and loads of other stuff too.

In a time when the importance of visionary leadership has been trumpeted loud and long, there is a desperate need for another note to be added to the symphony. For vision to be safe and productive, it needs to be bounded by deeply-held values that can sustain a ministry in all seasons.

Woven with stories of church life at the coalface, this book is a vital call for leaders to allow the contours of their life and leadership to be values-shaped.

About the Author:

   Don Barry has been involved in church leadership for over 40 years. For the last 20 years he and his wife Karen have been the senior leaders of Gateway Church in Hamilton, New Zealand. During this season they have watched as God has restored a church, broken and bruised by the sexual failure of leadership, into a thriving congregation of over 1200 people. Don is a gifted teacher whose ministry has been appreciated throughout New Zealand and in many other nations. Don and Karen have been married for 42 years and have two adult children and four precious grandchildren.
