“Having served in leadership in both church and para-church ministries, I know from experience that messes happen in ministry. When you find yourself waist-deep in another crisis, you need wise counsel, and you need it quickly. This book is such a rare gem. Written by two men who have helped many ministry leaders manage such messes, it jettisons mere theory for clear, practical help. Keep it close on your shelf. You will find yourself combing its pages often.”
— Paul Nyquist, Ph.D., President, The Moody Bible Institute, Chicago
“Dick Biery and Steve Cohen have combined very different backgrounds in a synergistic explosion of wisdom and experience to produce Ministry Mess Management. Having the privilege of knowing them both, I can assure you that this book goes way beyond theory to walk you through the nitty-gritty realities of ministry’s thorniest issues. These guys have been in the trenches, and I can see their distinctive gifts and personalities at every turn. Where was this book years ago when I was leaving a littered trail of messes behind me? I can tell you this, the next time I face a major mess these are the guys I am calling first! Get this book!
