Scott Wilson's book, Steering through Chaos
, will give you important principles to
endure the painful decisions during times of change. Scott's insights will help your church
stronger and reach more people for Christ. I wish I'd had this book years ago.

Steering through Chaos is absolutely inspirational, but it's also earthy. I love the way Scott
shares simple yet profound truths that have the potential to transform your leadership.
–Mark Batterson, Lead Pastor of National Community Church
Steering through Chaos shows us how God's greatest promises happen only when we submit to his
deepest intrusions into our lives. Scott Wilson understands that genuine change is disruptive
ultimately, a very personal experience. His transparent communication style leaves little doubt
to why he has become such a powerful young leader.
