Lee�s four decades of leadership experience in both the church and corporate worlds give him a unique perspective on how to apply proven leadership principles in the church. He has a master�s degree from Fuller Theological Seminary and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.

Lee Kricher has done the church a valuable service with the publication of this groundbreaking book.  Rather than lament or complain that youth are absent from church life today, he has offered a practical and spiritual sound response. He defines his goal simply - to create a New Generation Church. He defines this as a church with attendees whose average age is at least as young as the average age of the community in which the church exists. Kricher relates the story of how his own church, Amplify Church, located in the Pittsburgh area, transitioned to become a New Generation Church. Anyone looking for a quick fix will be disappointed, because Kricher outlines a serious strategy that obviously takes major commitment on the part of the leadership and church body to implement. Unlike many "how-to" books that portray one leader's particular experience, Kricher obviously has a tremendous background in group dynamics and leadership development which makes the ideas he presents come alive. I cannot help but think that some of his marvelous illustrations such as "missing the whale," "barking dogs," and "silver Vega" are destined to become shorthand expressions in church vocabulary. My own church realized we needed to focus on youth several years ago, and I dearly wish we could have had this book to help guide our strategy. The small group discussion questions at the end of each chapter would have been invaluable. For a New Generation pulls no punches. It takes time and money and tremendous commitment to go in a new direction. And make no mistakes -- there will opposition from the old guard. For the few Bravehearts out there in church leadership, this is your battle armor. If not now, when? If not you, who?
