Overview

Pastor, church planter, and author Wayne Cordeiro has spent the past 30 years in ministry. Ten years after founding New Hope Christian Fellowship, Hawaii’s largest church, he realized he was burned out. Cordeiro took some time off from ministry to recharge, readjust, and refocus.

In this collection, Cordeiro presents practical and personal wisdom for pastors, leaders, and laypeople feeling overwhelmed by life’s or ministry’s demands. He lays out the groundwork for transforming your lifestyle—your values, goals, and calling—so that you can serve with greater passion and joy, and avoid burnout. Cordeiro brings the focus heavenward, showing how an intimate relationship with God can revitalize believers and lead to a life of love, selflessness, and effective ministry.

In the Logos edition of the Wayne Cordeiro Collection, Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “spiritual formation” or “leadership.”

Key Features

Individual Titles

Jesus: Pure and Simple

  • Author: Wayne Cordeiro
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 208

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Do you ever feel like you’re being pulled in a million directions? Like you’re overwhelmed with various programs and ministries, or with studying the steps to good parenting, or the best ways to share Jesus with your neighbors? These are all good things, but even good things can sometimes take us away from our number one responsibility—knowing Jesus better.

Wayne Cordeiro shares how to focus on the One who matters most and take part in the joy and fulfillment that he brings. But he also teaches how this leads to selflessness, a true love for others, and effective ministry. It will, in fact, change how you see the world around you.

When you focus on Christ, everything else falls into place. Your relationships. Your job. Your church. Your mission. It’s all placed in the hands of Jesus, pure and simple.

Once in a while I catch myself reading a great book and I stop and say, ‘I wish I’d written that!’ Wayne Cordeiro puts me in that kind of envious mood. But even if I had written Jesus: Pure and Simple, it would not have been done nearly as well. Because a book like this can only come from the heart of a man who knows his subject very well.

Calvin Miller, former research professor and distinguished writer in residence, Beeson Divinity School

What I love about this book is that the content and title match what every follower of Christ should long for. In a world where everything soon gets over complicated, we all need these reminders to keep the main thing, the main thing—purity and simplicity of walking with Jesus every day.

Doug Fields, founder, Simply Youth Ministry

To a generation that can’t find the real story amidst all the tradition, churchyness, poor street cred, or newspaper headlines, Jesus: Pure and Simple is a breath of fresh air and should be the first place you start or start over.

Hugh Halter, church planter, pastor, consultant, and missionary

If you’re sick, you need a doctor who knows how to study what’s wrong with you and offer a savvy diagnosis—your life might depend on it. And in Jesus: Pure and Simple, Wayne Cordeiro is spot-on in his diagnosis of a Christian culture that is sick of itself. His prescription? More of Jesus, and less of everything else. I couldn’t agree more.

The Irresistible Church: 12 Traits of a Church Heaven Applauds

  • Author: Wayne Cordeiro
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

After more than 25 years of ministry in Hawaii, Wayne Cordeiro knows what kind of church God blesses. In fact, New Hope, the Honolulu church he founded, is one of the nation’s fastest-growing churches.

Whether you’re a pastor, layleader, or person in the pew, this book shows you how your church can become one that God uses in incredible ways. Wayne Cordeiro lays out 12 practical steps to being a church that heaven applauds—including ways to encourage love for the community, develop a culture of serving, turn visitors into regular attenders, and much more.

Yet the focus, he says, is not on programs—it’s on being a church that God can’t help but bless. When a church hungers for the presence of God, promotes healthy relationships, and connects everything to a soul, it becomes a vibrant church that’s irresistible to God—and to people. These are characteristics that any church can develop—no matter the size of the congregation or the budget—to become irresistible. The included study guide will help you apply these principles to your church.

This book has well proven principles that when applied, will become breakthrough ideas to take your church to the next level of effectiveness.

Leading on Empty: Refilling Your Tank and Renewing Your Passion

  • Author: Wayne Cordeiro
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

It was a balmy California evening. I had gone for a jog before I was to speak at a leadership conference. I still can’t recall how I got there, but I found myself sitting on a curb weeping uncontrollably. I couldn’t tell if it took place suddenly or gradually, but I knew something had broken inside. I remember lifting my trembling hands and asking out loud, “What in the world is happening to me?”

I had been leading on empty. That incident began a three-year odyssey I could never have imagined. It was a journey through a season of burnout and re-calibration that would radically change my lifestyle, my values, my goals, and even adjust my calling.

Are you leading on empty? If you’re a church or ministry leader, you probably identify with Wayne Cordeiro’s experience of being overwhelmed by the demands of ministry. At times you may find yourself depleted of energy and longing to escape the constant pressure.

In Leading on Empty, Wayne Cordeiro candidly shares his experience with the hope that it will encourage others headed down the same path. He was able to get back in touch with his life, get back in proper balance, and allow God to reenergize his spirit in a way that propelled him forward to greater levels of service. Learn from his experience how you can continue a fruitful ministry. Better yet, take advantage of Wayne’s helpful advice early on and avoid burnout altogether.

This is a must read for all leaders. God often calls us to lead smarter, not harder, for the sake of his Kingdom. We can all learn from a veteran leader like Wayne Cordeiro as he shares his decades of experience in this book.

Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

Having experienced burnout personally earlier in my career I can attest to all Wayne has written, and especially to the fact that out of such a fire can come spiritual growth and maturity. I particularly want to encourage young pastors and Christian leaders who are just starting out in their ministries to devour this book and follow its wise counsel.

Archibald D. Hart, senior professor of psychology, Graduate School of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary

Sooner or later, we all find ourselves trying to lead on empty. It’s a tough place to be. But the wisdom, transparency, and godly advice Wayne offers in these pages can spare us the grief. He shows how to keep the tank from running dry—or how to refill it if it’s gone empty. If you’re in ministry, you need to read this book.

Larry Osborne, senior pastor, North Coast Church, Vista, CA

I strongly recommend Leading on Empty to any church planter, seasoned minister, or emerging leader. This book will help protect your flame and passion for ministry until we all reach our God-intended purpose and destiny.

—Talo Sataraka, senior pastor, New Hope Tokyo

Think about what you deal with daily. Maybe you suffer the wear and tear of long commutes and even longer work days. Or you find yourself juggling endless emails, phone calls, and text messages. Noise. Chatter. Crowds. Politics. Talk radio. Television. Bills. Worries. Responsibilities. Deadlines. Endless chores. Demanding children. Relational bruises.

Life wears on us. We can’t evade most of it, and that’s not really the solution anyway. What we need to do is protect the most important part of us . . . that deep down, soulish part of life that links us with our Creator.

In The Divine Mentor, you will discover how to enjoy a dynamic, vital, and intimate relationship with God as you learn to hear him speak daily through the Bible. You’ll embark on an adventure that will introduce you to His handpicked mentors, men and women who may save your health, your marriage, your ministry, and your future.

Wayne Cordeiro challenges you to develop a lifelong habit—the one thing Jesus says is truly necessary—that will preserve your soul, establish your legacy, and hold God’s Living Word inside you.
