The Emotionally Healthy Leader

How Transforming Your Inner Life Will Deeply Transform Your Church, Team, and the World

PETER SCAZZERO is the founder of New Life Fellowship Church in Queens, New York City, a large, multiracial church with more than seventy-three countries represented a best-selling author/speaker. After serving as senior pastor for twenty-six years, Pete now serves as a teaching pastor/pastor at large.


His newest book, The Emotionally Healthy Leader: How Transforming Your Inner Life Will Deeply Transform Your Church, Team, and the World (Zondervan, June 2015), equips leaders in a new paradigm of leadership in which core leadership tasks - planning, decision making, culture building, boundaries, the exercise of power, endings and new beginnings – are informed and connected to a deep, inner life with Christ. Scazzero offers a road map, complete with specific ideas and practices, to build teams that deeply transform people who, in turn, deeply transform the world.


Scazzero is also the author of two best-selling books—Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (Zondervan, 2006) and The Emotionally Healthy Church (Zondervan, 2003—updated and revised 2010). He is also the author of The EHS Course (Zondervan, 2014), The EHS Churchwide Initiative (Zondervan, 2014) and Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (Zondervan, 2014).


Pete and his wife, Geri, are the founders of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (, a global ministry that equips churches in a deep, beneath-the-surface spirituality that deeply transforms people who then transform the world. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality was birthed out of the realization that key areas were missing in the church’s spiritual formation and discipleship initiatives. Over a 19-year period, these missing elements were identified and developed to serve churches and leaders around the world.
