Leading the church into the 21st century can be a bewildering experience as tried and true programs fail. Even ministry approaches that have proven successful in other church settings often yield disappointing results. Leaders and clergy are left scratching their heads and wrestling with the feeling they are missing something important. 


In the book Owl Sight, consultant J. Russell Crabtree identifies this missing component and names it “organization intelligence.” In spite of the fact the leaders and members maybe be immersed in the life of their church, they typically have little clarity regarding how people are experience the church overall, their hopes, or patterns of thinking and behavior unique to their congregation that must be addressed to realize their vision.

I have published several books, and publishing with Bill Huff was by far the most satisfying book publishing experience I've had. He makes a real effort to balance the author's gifts with the needs of the target audience. His suggestions for product development are well-founded and offered in a dignified manner. His assistance was outstanding at every stage of the process.
