What People are saying about
Following the Heart of the Great Shephard
"In her book, 'Following the Heart Of The Great Shepherd,' Venetia seeks to exhort and challenge each church or ministry leader to make growing closer in relationship with Christ the main priority of church leadership. Even in the face of the many demands that everyone who has been called to lead others faces on a daily basis, the call to know Jesus is the single key to leading others as difficult times increase. Readers will be challenged and encouraged to see each day as an opportunity to grow closer in relationship with Jesus, our Great Shepherd, which will enable them to lead and serve by following the desires of His heart."
|Mike Bickle, Director, International House of Prayer, Kansas City MO.|
"In this, her latest book, Venetia Carpenter has captured the essence of true Christian leadership by pointing us to Jesus and showing that those who would lead the people of God must share the heart and mind of the One to whom all leaders are ultimately accountable. I highly recommend this book."

"Most modern ministries have only marginally touched on the real essence of the Kingdom. Venetia Carpenter understands that. She also understands that the world is changing at an accelerated rate. The great culmination of ages is upon us when the knowledge of the glory of the Lord will fill the earth, the fullness of the Gentiles will come in, and all Israel will be saved. This will all take place in the face of the biggest challenges the human race has ever encountered. The birth pangs of a new Day will affect us all. The Church and her leadership will be forced to abandon everything that can be shaken and embrace only what is real. Venetia calls the Church out of its stale paradigms to embrace her real destiny as a splendid, passionate, and strong Bride."

"Venetia has done a great job in this book in focusing in two areas that will become increasingly important and relevant in the coming days: Leaders who take on the hearts of servants and lead with only the promotion of Jesus in mind, and leaders who are preparing followers to live not only in the present, but also for the soon coming Day of the Lord. Your heart will be sifted and challenged in the reading of this book."
|Jeff Eggers, Prophetic/Healing Leadership Department, International House of Prayer, Kansas City, MO|
"Straight to the point, this book preaches. In a world that is ever changing, Venetia unveils a timely message on the heart of God, and the effects on leadership. You will find a fresh dose of urgency to prepare hearts for both, what is coming upon the earth, and who is coming to it."
