Failing Boldly

How Falling Down in Ministry Can Be the Start of Rising Up  

by Christian Coon
Clergy & Laity Discipleship

This book is a must-read for anyone who has ever tried to energize or grow a ministry. Christian Coon takes us through his own missteps and mistakes as the co-founder of the Urban Village Church—as well as those of others working to do the same—and shows how failure can serve as a springboard to new possibilities and even a closer connection to God and what leadership means. Woven together with honesty, humility, and humor, Failing Boldly helps us learn to look on failure as an actual gift that can be the gateway to a deeper journey.
