Springfield, Mo.—October 9, 2006—The public is invited to attend a seminar, sponsored by the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS), featuring Dr. Earl Creps and his new book Off-Road Disciplines: Spiritual Adventures for Missional Leaders. Leonard Sweet of George Fox University said, “This is one of the most exciting books I have read in years. It shifts our focus from doing church to being church, and promises to be a standard reference in all future discussions of missional leadership.” The seminar will take place October 27 (9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.) at AGTS in Springfield, Mo.

Dr. Creps will explore 12 central spiritual disciplines—six personal and six organizational—that can reshape Christian leaders and their ministries to engage the culture around them. He will provide a map of the cultural terrain leaders must navigate, with insights on how the process of personal spiritual formation can transform organizations.

Off-Road Disciplines was released in September 2006 to an eager audience by Jossey-Bass and Leadership Network.

Todd Hunter, national director of Alpha USA and former national director of Vineyard USA said, “Creps not only knows what is going on today, he teaches us how to engage today’s people as well… The chapter on ‘reverse mentoring’ is worth the price of the book.”

Earl Creps, Ph.D., D.Min., is the director of doctoral studies at AGTS. He is a former pastor, ministries consultant and university professor, is a sought-after speaker and innovative leader.

The registration deadline is October 20. Call AGTS at 800-467-AGTS or register online at The $75 fee includes a copy of the book, sessions with Dr. Creps and lunch. Discounts are available for groups.
