  • Powerful Leaders : When Church Leadership Goes Wrong And How To Prevent It

    $13.99

    As understanding and awareness of abuse has grown, many revelations of church leaders abusing their power have come to light. How did the church get here? Is there a way we can address both individual and institutional failings to counter the misuse of power and, more importantly, prevent it in first place?

    Powerful Leaders? exposes and explores how leaders are tempted away from a biblical model of leadership into illegitimate – and in the worst cases abusive – use of authority and power. Director of Living Leadership, a charity that focuses on healthy leadership and church culture, Marcus Honeysett traces how leaders move along a spectrum of healthy to unhealthy uses of power and position and offers practical wisdom for countering and preventing harmful leadership.

    Drawing on his years of experience in the local church and working with leaders and congregations, Honeysett unpacks how to spot danger signs of abuse in the church and provides advice on what to do if you see or are under unhealthy leadership. He also explores why people don’t blow the whistle and encourages critical self-examination in existing leaders to ensure they maintain a healthy use of power – and offers guidance to help leaders improve their skills and move back towards healthy, biblically-based leadership.

    For anyone concerned about improving safeguarding in the church, Powerful Leaders? will prove a valuable resource. It challenges and equips both those in leadership and those in a position to hold leaders accountable, and will empower them to take the necessary steps forward to create healthier church cultures in which everyone can thrive.

    $17.99

    Pastoral leadership is in crisis.

    It’s not just that many pastors feel overwhelmed and stressed out; many have lost their way.

If pastors are to lead congregations, then they must first learn what it means to be led by the Good Shepherd.

His wisdom and insight provide a roadmap for ministry resilience and longevity.

  • Discipled Leader : Inspiration From A Fortune 500 Executive For Transformin

    $24.99

    Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.

    What he discovered was this: the first step wasn’t adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace. And in order to model discipleship to his team, he needed to first be discipled by the Spirit. Here, in the day-to-day practice of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, Poore found where his faith and exceptional leadership intersect.

    Through personal stories, biblical principles, and hands-on workplace guidance, Poore offers readers a unique look at this seldom-discussed connection. He challenges struggling leaders to engage in the hard work of daily discipleship. And he charges experienced leaders to return to the fundamentals of their faith, encouraging them to disciple other Christians with leadership potential.

    For anyone wrestling with how to bring faith to the workplace, whether it be a cubicle or a boardroom, Discipled Leader reveals that leadership doesn’t begin behind the desk–it begins in the soul.

  • Lead Like Christ

    $16.99

    As a Christian, does your leadership approach look any different from that of those who don’t follow Christ? In the Bible, God showed us what leadership looks in his kingdom, and at first a lot of it seems upside-down. The first shall be last. The master shall be the servant. But how can we apply these counterintuitive truths in our own world today? The first step, it turns out, is to become a good follower–a disciple of Christ who always lets him take the lead.

    Rather than focusing on the nuts and bolts of management, Lead Like Christ looks closely at how leaders can better imitate the greatest leader of all. Looking to the example of Christ, regardless of the setting, is the only way to create the relationships, loyalty, and cohesion you need to lead well. This step of humility and obedience is not easy, but it will result in powerful, long-lasting change in both your own leadership role today as well as in God’s eternal kingdom.

  • Legacy Of Leaders

    $16.99

    Jesus redefined the concept of leadership when He stated, “Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:26-28; Mark 10:43-45, Luke 22:26-27).

    Legacy of Leaders: A 40-Day Journey with the Men of God’s Word walks through forty stories in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, from pillars of the faith like Abraham and David to the easily missed like Shamgar and Joseph (Jesus’ dad).

    Whether your first or thousandth time through these ageless accounts of men who encountered God, Scripture reveals that He did not choose super-heroes, but rather broken men the world often ignored and overlooked.

    Be encouraged, challenged, and inspired on this 40-day journey, allowing God to show you what His leadership can look like in your life, as well as the leader He can create in you.

  • Hinge Moments : Making The Most Of Life’s Transitions

    $22.00

    In life we have moments in time in which we have an opportunity before us to make a change or to respond to a situation.

    According to Michael Lindsay, president of Gordon College, what follows these instances will depend intrinsically on the decisions we make and the actions we take. These are what he calls “hinge moments”–opportunities to open (or close) doors to various pathways of our lives. Lindsay maintains that getting these moments right can change our lives for the better, and getting them wrong can pose problems for years to come: “Some transitions have a disproportionate impact on our happiness, our contribution to society, and our family’s well-being.” In these pages Lindsay shares faith-based stories of success and failure from his ten-year study of 550 PLATINUM leaders. He has charted seven phases of transition, providing both practical and spiritual insights for making the most of each stage. In uncertain and tumultuous times, there is no better advantage than wisdom gained early.

  • Faithful Leaders : And The Things That Matter Most

    $12.99

    Explore the things that really matter for a successful ministry.

    “Well done good and faithful servant.” Every ministry leader wants to hear these words when they meet their Lord. But what does successful ministry look like?

    There are many books on leadership strategies and church structures, but this one looks at what matters most: the character and attitude of church leaders. It recognizes that the spiritual health of the church leaders in large part determines the spiritual health of the congregation and therefore the success of the ministry.

    In this short, punchy, challenging and at times surprising book, Rico Tice draws on decades of experience in church leadership to call fellow pastors and others with oversight of areas of church ministry to define success biblically, fight their sin, lead themselves and serve their churches. It will be a battle, but one worth fighting because personal holiness and godly leadership matter eternally.

    A must-read on pastoral leadership for pastors, elders, worship leaders, youth leaders and anyone else with a leadership role in church ministry.

  • Lead Like It Matters To God

    $25.00

    Richard Stearns is a leader who has been tested as a CEO in both secular companies and also as the head of one of the world’s largest Christian ministries.

    After stints as CEO of Parker Brothers and then Lenox, Stearns accepted the invitation to leave his corporate career to become the president of World Vision US, where he became the longest serving president in their seventy-year history. During his tenure there he implemented corporate best practices, lowering overheads while tripling revenues. His leadership in calling the American church to respond to some of the greatest crises of our time, notably the HIV and AIDS pandemic, and the global refugee crisis, challenged Christians to embrace a bold vision for compassion, mercy, and justice. In Lead Like It Matters to God, Stearns shares the leadership principles he has learned over the course of his remarkable career. As a leader who has navigated both secular and sacred spaces, Stearns claims that the values Christian leaders embrace in their workplaces are actually more important than the results they achieve–that God is more concerned about a leader’s character than a leader’s success. With wisdom, wit, and biblical teaching, Stearns shares captivating stories of his life journey and unpacks seventeen crucial values that can transform leaders and their organizations. When leaders embody values such as integrity, courage, excellence, forgiveness, humility, surrender, balance, generosity, perseverance, love, excellence, and encouragement, they not only improve their witness for Christ, they also shape institutions, influence culture, improve team performance, and create healthy workplaces where people can flourish. Through this book, Stearns will inspire a new generation of Christian leaders to boldly take their values into their workplaces to tangibly demonstrate the character of Christ, the love of Christ, and the truth of Christ as they live out their faith in full view of others.

  • 150 Essential Insights On Leadership

    $7.99

    “The best leaders bring all of the resources in their world into play to accomplish something great.”
    John Maxwell

    Influential author and teacher John C. Maxwell travels around the world to meet with people of all backgrounds, helping them discover their God-given purpose. John’s timeless leadership principles equip and empower people-from Fortune 500 companies to community leaders-to do remarkable things and lead significant and fulfilled lives.

    Now you can gain from John’s wisdom and guidance with this collection of some of his most impactful quotes. Whether you are called to lead or you’re simply seeking God’s direction for your life, you will benefit from his valuable insights on…

    *Taking Action: “In the beginning, you just need to get moving. Try different things. It’s much easier to start doing something right if you’ve already started doing something.
    *Dreaming Big: “Dreams are valuable commodities. They propel us forward. They give us energy. They make us enthusiastic. Everyone ought to have a dream.”
    *Investing in Others: “One of the ironies of leadership is that you become a better leader by sharing whatever power you have, not by saving it all for yourself. You’re meant to be a river, not a reservoir. If you use your power to empower others, your leadership will extend far beyond your grasp.”

    Let John’s words inspire you to make a difference in your home, your workplace, and your world.

Tod Bolsinger, author of Canoeing the Mountains, is uniquely positioned to explore the qualities of adaptive leadership in contexts ranging from churches to nonprofit organizations. He deftly examines both the external challenges we face and the internal resistance that holds us back.

  • Rural Church Turnaround

    $9.95

    Declining or plateauing rural churches do not have to die! They can live and become an influence for good in their communities.

    Unfortunately, many rural churches will close after decades of faithful service. Fewer rural people are attending church.

  • No Limits : Blow The CAP Off Your Capacity

    $16.99

    #1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell’s latest book will enhance the lives of leaders, professionals, and anyone who wants to achieve success and personal growth.

    We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive as off limits rather than what’s really possible. Could it be that many of us have failed to expand our potential because we have allowed what we perceive as capacity to define us? What if our limits are not really our limits?

    In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these capacities, and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identify, grow, and apply your critical capacities. Once you’ve blown the “cap” off your capacities, you’ll find yourself more successful–and fulfilled–in your daily life.

  • Small Church Essentials

    $12.99

    Do you lead a small church?

    Big churches get all the love. Articles, books, conferences–they mostly feature leaders of large congregations. Yet big churches are a small part of the ecclesial landscape. In fact, more than 90 percent of churches have fewer than 200 people. That means small churches play a big part in what God is doing in America.

    Small Church Essentials is for leaders of these smaller congregations. It encourages them to steward their role well, debunking myths about small churches while offering principles for leading a dynamic, healthy small church.

    Based on the popular six-hour lecture that Karl Vaters delivers to church leaders across the country, Small Church Essentials will affirm small church leaders and show them how to identify what they do well, and how to do it even better. Readers will:
    Be assured that leading a small congregation does not make them ministry failures
    Come away inspired to lead with passion, regardless the size of their church
    Have field-tested principles for leading a church to apply in their context
    Possess new metrics for biblically measuring vitality in small churches
    Have a toolkit of resources to use in their everyday ministry

    Karl Vaters is a small church guru. He’s been a small church pastor for 30 years, is the author of The Grasshopper Myth: Big Churches, Small Churches, and the Small Thinking that Divides Us (2013), and travels extensively to churches and conferences to speak about leading a small church well.

    If you are pastoring a small church, this book will be a breath of fresh air. It will affirm your calling while giving you fresh tools to help you lead. It will help you:
    Stop believing lies about small churches
    Lead your church to fulfill the role only small churches can
    Understand your congregation’s strengths and weaknesses
    Turn around a dying or unhealthy church
    Identify good trends and bad in church and culture

  • After 50 Years Of Ministry

    $9.99

    “If I had my entire life to live over, I’d choose to be a preacher again. It’s been extremely rewarding and gratifying.

    But I could do ministry a lot better if given a second try. As I look back on my forty years at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, I wish I had a mulligan. This book lists seven things I’d do differently and seven I’d do about the same. They are written in hopes they’ll be a source of encouragement for those growing weary and losing heart. I pray my observations will inspire others to conclude, ‘If he can do it, I can, too.’

    In this book I share both the joys and sorrows of my ministry, both the successes and failures. I’m going to be as transparent as possible in hopes that it will encourage ministers to stand firm in the faith and be faithful unto death. If just one minister is motivated to pick up the sword of the Spirit and re-enter the battle, it will be well worth the effort.”- Bob Russell

  • Mission Drift : The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders Charities And Churches

    $15.99

    Is your organization in danger of Mission Drift?Without careful attention, faith-based organizations drift from their founding mission. It’s that simple. It will happen. Slowly, silently, and with little fanfare, organizations routinely drift from their purpose, and many never return to their original intent. Harvard and the YMCA are among those that no longer embrace the Christian principles on which they were founded. But they didn’t drift off course overnight. Drift often happens in small and subtle ways. Left unchecked, it eventually becomes significant. Yet Mission Drift is not inevitable. Organizations such as Compassion International and InterVarsity have exhibited intentional, long-term commitment to Christ.Why do so many organizations–including churches–wander from their mission, while others remain Mission True? Can drift be prevented? In Mission Drift, HOPE International executives Peter Greer and Chris Horst tackle these questions. They show how to determine whether your organization is in danger of drift, and they share the results of their research into Mission True and Mission Untrue organizations. Even if your organization is Mission True now, it’s wise to look for ways to inoculate yourself against drift. You’ll discover what you can do to prevent drift or get back on track and how to protect what matters most.

  • Woman Called : Piecing Together The Ministry Puzzle

    $14.99

    The call to ministry is profound and life-changing, one that women are often forbidden to answer. In this sensitive and moving memoir Sara Barton speaks openly and vulnerably about how the conflict has played out in her life.

    In many churches today, Christians assume that women are excluded from the public role of preaching–yet women like Sara Barton experience a call to preach, forcing congregations and individuals to confront a complicated rethinking of tradition and theology. For many, the issues that surface are fraught with hopes and fears–hope of what could be in a church that embraces women’s voices in the pulpit and throughout leadership; and fear of violating God-ordained order and losing a sacred commitment to Scripture. Other books have addressed the theological arguments in this important debate, and while those works are significant, they tend to be removed from the day-to-day realities involved.

    Feeling an inner call to preach as a young girl, Sara found herself perplexed because of her community’s strong teachings about the role of women in the church. She has been seeking her way ever since–still convinced she is supposed to preach, still confused by the censure that brings in her religious community, and unwilling to reject that community in return. Sara’s story is one of being pulled apart and yet deeply committed. Anyone touched by this issue should take her voice seriously.
