Breaking the Sound Barrier uses as a framework of two memorable, process-oriented metaphors for transformation: Aeronautics, to address what it takes to break through faulty stereotypes and other personal barriers that hold women back from effective "Mach 10" ministry. Wineskins, to address the dramatic changes required in corporate systems that block radical transformation from occurring in our congregations and communities. Its source materials also include insights from biblical role models, theological perspectives, stories of the author's own experiences, and interviews of other women and couples who are pioneers of transformational ministries in new paradigms. Several research surveys are being written to help evaluate underlying causes of barriers to effective ministry for women and how women are coping with radical paradigm shifts in turnaround church work. The introduction and first chapter give principles and anecdotes for what radical change ministry involves and what a "co-piloting leadership paradigm" looks like. They describe the key barriers to such change at the personal level (faulty stereotypes) and corporate level (inflexible systems), and apply metaphor parallels for breaking through those barriers. The next 10 chapters take readers from "Mach 1" to "Mach 10" in working through principles and applications of the aeronautics metaphor for personal ministry. Each of these 10 chapters also includes a section "giving voice" to women and couples in ministry who have wrestled with replacing the old wineskin systems which have impeded "new vintage" growth that the Spirit wants to implant. Healthy ministerial families are critical to turnaround church change. A potential follow-up project would offer holistic assessments and tools for ministry family systems coaching.
