What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Dave Kraft has written a thorough and enlightening book on leadership that is easy to read and practical, full of great illustrations and stimulating quotations. This is a book for leaders who want to keep growing in their understanding of leadership, finish strongly, and lead with passion."
Mike Treneer, International President, The Navigators

"I love it when a practitioner not a theorist writes a book on leadership. I have known Dave for many years and his personal as well as his professional life is exemplary. He is someone you want to follow. He is a leader that knows how to last. He leads from conviction and character. He is a leader that understands how to place Christ at the center of his world and lead with purpose, passion, priorities, and proper pacing. Leaders Who Last is a powerful tool written by a respected leader who knows how to finish well."
Greg Salciccioli, Founding President of Ministry Coaching International

"Leaders Who Last is filled with practical principles to develop leaders who will influence others."
Scott Thomas, Pastor of Pastoral Development, The Journey Church, St. Louis, Missouri; coauthor, Gospel Coach: Shepherding Leaders to Glorify God

"This book carefully constructs a scriptural approach to leadership in a manner that is both accurate and practical. When you combine Dave's sound scriptural basis with his many years of successful leadership, you get a book that should become a handbook for Christians who are serious about learning to lead well. Christians at all levels of responsibility in their organizations will find this information invaluable to their personal growth and effective leadership."
Keith McGuire, retired director for a federal agency

"Dave Kraft is a proven leader, but he's also a keen observer of leaders and leadership principles. In this valuable book, Dave passes on foundational lessons that will help any leader continue growing, learning, and adapting to our rapidly changing world—a world desperate for what true leaders have to offer. He challenges leaders to live with passion and vision flowing from their God-given design and calling—essentials for those who hope to serve and influence others for a lifetime."
Pete Gerhard, Professional coach of emerging leaders

"I could have used your book when I began volunteering at Saddleback Church in the Children's and Jr. High Ministry. I believe this book to be an essential tool for any church volunteer starting to serve in their prospective ministry."
Dave Makela, VP of Sales, Ministry Coaching International

"I must say that it is exceptional. It is superbly written—very readable, great flow, one thought building on another, excellent use of Scripture and illustrations, some very practical ideas that the reader is sure to remember, apply and pass on. Thanks for being in my life, Dave, and for all that you have added into my life as a Christian leader."
Coppersmith, Mike, Lead Pastor, Our Savior’s Community Church

    Invaluable! A must have for everyone in any level of leadership

    This book is gold. It doesn't waste time on any unnecessary fluff, but helps you hone in on what's really important. It is deep and insightful but also helpful in practical ways. Reading this has changed my whole outlook. It has helped my husband and I with personal goals, as well as our day to day work and relationships with our team. Although I haven't met him, I did attendDave Kraft's free conference and I subscribe to his free emails & website which are amazing and very useful. He must be a truly generous & giving person who genuinely wants to help leaders impact their communities.
