His decision to retire full-time from the pulpit sparked 48-hours of trending questions on social media – “Is your season in this role over?” “What season of life are you in?” and “How do you know when it’s time to leave?” “Where are you headed?” In SEASONS, Charles Jenkins provides answers to the questions. In the pages, he inspires people to consider that they might be on the verge of a new season. This book isn’t just a philosophy of change; he describes concrete practices that help people take the next step in the various seasons of transition that life will offer.

“Never have we seen a time of global transition that has affected, if not decimated, every country, corporation, sector, family, and individual. No socio-economic or even spiritual construct has not, in some way, been overwhelmed. All plans and projections have been disrupted. All of our proposed strategies have, in a moment, aged to antiquated irrelevance. Inside we clasp our hands and secretly ask, “What’s next?” Charles Jenkins’ latest book, Seasons: How to Grow & Succeed during Times of Transition, holds many insights, solutions, and enlightened perspectives about the tough decisions, options, and dilemmas that keep many of us up at night,” shares NY Times Bestselling Author Bishop T.D.
