Leave a Living Legacy

Tension between older and younger generations has always existed--especially in the church. We have struggled with this for years, building up resentments and crippling those on both sides of the fight. We resist the thought that emerging and established leaders can, and must, work together.

But these are critical days, and the church needs large-hearted leadership willing to move beyond personal struggles and emotional triggers for the sake of others. It needs passionate, relational leaders, willing to mentor and be mentored, to give a thriving, living legacy to future generations.

Can it be done? Absolutely--and it can start with you.

Join internationally acclaimed leader Darlene Zschech for a journey into the heart of mentoring--and see how intergenerational leadership radically impacts the kingdom in ways you could never do alone.


Great leaders like Darlene Zschech pour themselves into others. Packed with valuable, practical insights, this passionate and powerful book calls established and rising leaders to work together, showing how they can combine their unique strengths to leave an even greater legacy for the generations to come.

As passionate about empowering the next generation as she is about leading hers, Darlene Zschech is possibly the most amazing mentor I know. Who better to learn from than Darlene, who continues to raise up in her wake some of the most influential, inspiring, and imaginative leaders on the face of the planet. She has lived this book so well. Let her lead you and equip you to release others.

When you get to know Darlene you understand that she loves people. Not just the 'shiny' people you would expect to circulate in her world, but the broke, the poor, and the downhearted. I've seen her time and time again encourage people who no one else would believe in. Many of these are now well-known names on the worship circuit who started life very differently but she saw the potential in them. This book will help us all to understand that the gospel is about people not a brand.
