"Al Lopus has built a remarkable niche of coming alongside ministries—both large and small—to reshape their cultures. While not promising an overnight cure, he identifies areas of unhealthiness and charts doable pathways to flourishing. I have seen his handiwork up close, and it is transformative. With this book, his sphere of influence is broadened. I believe that the Lord is well pleased with his efforts."

"Al Lopus is the culture champion and wise guide who provides Christian leaders with what is needed most to ensure their employees thrive. In The Road to Flourishing you will never have a reason to lose your way. God has entrusted leaders with men and women who have been called to accomplish his plans. This is the book that will enable you to create a culture where everyone passionately gives their best so that God's best is achieved."
-Tami Heim, president and CEO of the Christian Leadership Alliance
"When it comes to our jobs and the way we work together, God describes his heart in Psalm 115:14, 'May the Lord cause you to flourish.' It's a glorious goal, but how do we reach it? In this powerful new book, my friend Al Lopus describes the key benchmarks in creating an organizational culture where people thrive. Al Lopus was instrumental in helping Joni and Friends become a flourishing workplace—our ministry is a place where our employees love what they do, respect one another, and enjoy extending Christ's kingdom. I highly recommend this exceptional book to your business, church, or ministry organization."
