Kent Humphreys' most recent and most well-received book yet! This 50-page guide to Understanding God s Plan for Transforming Leaders is a must-read for any pastor and the strong and driven business leaders (horses) that he shepherds. 'Ride' along with Kent as he lays out a plan of action for bridging the gap between these very two different but equally important kinds of people in this 'animal kingdom' of God.
Using the mental picture of a shepherd caring for his sheep, Kent Humphreys likens the shepherd to a pastor and the congregation to sheep, into which a few horses (strong business leaders) have been let loose. It is hard to understand these horses, who are just as capable of causing chaos with their strength and of standing quietly off in a corner of the pasture by themselves. How is a pastor to understand and equip these potentially powerful creatures to be part of the 'flock' and then to go out into their workplace to minister and influence it for God? The answer to that question is the focus of this book.
Taking the example of how Jesus handled His 'horses,' a simple plan is offered that can build bridges between pastors and workplace leaders, impacting both the church and the community.

For many years, Kent has spent much of his time ministering to business leaders and pastors across the country through speaking, writing, and mentoring. He has spoken in sixteen seminaries across the United States and Canada and at numerous international conferences. His book Lasting Investments: A Pastor's Guide for Equipping Workplace Leaders to Leave a Spiritual Legacy has seen national and international success. It is a recommended companion book to Shepherding Horses: Understanding God s Plan for Transforming Leaders.
Kent lives in Oklahoma City with his wife Davidene. They have three married children, and eight grandchildren, all of whom live in Oklahoma.
It has been with great anticipation that I have waited for a book like this one to be available to myself and other pastors, a book that is filled with not only Biblical principles, but practical steps explaining how to understand, have a relationship with, and equip the business and community leaders in our congregations.
Pastors, there are a lot more of them than there are of us. Train them and send them out! And be ready for your church to grow! --Pastor Ray Ivey, Cherokee Hills Baptist Church, Oklahoma City
