High Impact Teams – Lance Witt

highLance Witt, High Impact Teams: Where Healthy Meets High Performance (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2018), 298 pp.

High Impact Teams by Lance Witt took me by complete surprise. Each year I read several books on leadership. On first glance, the book seemed a bit bland and appeared to offer very little in terms of practical help. But it only took about fifty pages for the author to warm up. Once the engines were revved up, he never looked back.

Lance Witt is a seasoned pastor who has served on large church staffs, including Saddleback Church. So Witt brings a wealth of experience to the table – and it shows. His insight and wisdom are evident throughout the book.

High Impact Teams is arranged in eight parts. Each part tackles a different facet of leadership and presents a wide range of options for church leaders.

The principles that Witt proposed are supercharged biblical realities that have the power to created high impact teams with optimal results. I commend High Impact Teams and trust that God will use it in a mighty way to encourage pastors and leaders for many years to come.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.

  1. Dear David,

    I hope you are fine. My name is María José Ojeda. I’m writing on behalf of the Acceso Directo editing team, a non-profit Christian organization in Chile that provides free biblical resources for people in Latinamerica (http://www.accesodirecto.org).

    For a couple of years now, we have been translating Gospel-centered articles into Spanish to bless and equip the church in Latin America. We are interested in translating your book reviews into Spanish and publish them on our website. We couldn’t find an e-mail for this request, that’s why are contacting you through this comment.

    We would like to ask your permission for that and, if you do, we would like to know what are your requirements to quote you.

    Having access to this resources would be a huge blessing for the people in Latin America.

    Most grateful,

    In Christ,

    María José Ojeda

I trust that the articles and reviews will be a blessing to many!

      Blessings in Christ,
