Quick Overview

Do we know where we are going and why?  Are we focused on the task at hand, or have distractions drawn us away from the priorities to which Christ has called us?

This book isn’t advice recycled from other books.  Instead, Elder Paulsen shares here the perspectives on leadership he’s developed through a lifetime of service.  He gives us a series of reflections on issues that are important to our church today and tomorrow – among them:

•    The role of women in ministry
•    The loss of our young people, particularly our young professionals
•    How we can build relationships with fellow Adventists that will strengthen Christ’s kingdom
•    How we as individual members and churches should relate to Adventist immigrants and refugees
•    The “us” and “them” of Adventists and other Christian beliers
•    How God views other religions, and what that means for us
•    How we can preserve unity when we disagree among ourselves
•    What we need to do to find and train the leaders our church needs
•    What lies ahead

Leaders experience more than their share of pain and vulnerability. But we can have a tremendous sense of purpose, joy, and fulfillment, because no matter what circumstances we face, we can be sure of the abiding presence of our Lord – for this is His church, and we are His servants.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Jan Paulsen


For more than five decades, Elder Jan Paulsen has served his church – as pastor, teacher, missionary, college president, theologian, church administrator, and, ultimately, as leader of the Seventh-day Adventist world church. As General Conference president from 1999 to 2010, he led the church through an era of unprecedented growth and unique challenges. Among the hallmarks of his administration were his commitment to worldwide church unity, his ongoing conversations with the youth and young adults of the church, and his efforts to expand the church’s mission reach and community presence around the world.

Elder Paulsen has written numerous articles and scholarly works, including three books, When the Spirit Descends, Let Your Light So Shine, and Where Are We Going? He and his wife, Kari, have three children and three grandchildren.
