  • Redeeming Productivity : Getting More Done For The Glory Of God

    $15.99

    Feeling overwhelmed and unproductive? The answer isn’t to do more.

    What image forms in your mind when you think of productivity? An assembly line? Spreadsheets? Business suits or workplace uniforms? In the ancient world, productivity didn’t conjure images like these. Instead, it referred to crop yield and fruit bearing. This agrarian imagery helps us understand productivity through a biblical lens. Jesus taught, By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit (John 15:8). Who doesn’t want to have a truly productive life–to bear much fruit? But how does this happen in the places we hold dear–the home, workplace, and in our communities?

    We often feel overworked and overrun, defeated and discouraged. The world says be productive so that you can get all you can out of this life. The Bible says be productive so you can gain more of the next life. In Redeeming Productivity, author Reagan Rose explores how God’s glory is the purpose for which He planted us. And he shows how productivity must be firmly rooted in the gospel. Only through our connection to Christ–the True Vine–are we empowered to produce good fruit. This book shows how we can maintain the vitality of that connection through simple, life-giving disciplines. Readers will discover manageable applications like giving God the first fruits of our days. Additionally, Reagan discusses how our perspective on suffering is transformed as we see trials as God’s pruning for greater productivity.

  • Creating Cultures Of Belonging

    $20.00

    With increasing interest from donors and board members to see faith-based, missional organizations reflect the diversity of God’s kingdom, these organizations desire to have women in positions of leadership. However, this proves difficult when the organizational culture is one that silences and even penalizes the unique giftings that women bring to the table.

    Many organizations still lack the ability to embody a new culture-what Beth Birmingham and Eeva Simard call a belonging culture. Such a culture is one where all employees are secure and recognized, where leaders seek productivity and connectivity, and where the organization is committed to supporting a diverse community of employees.

    Creating Cultures of Belonging offers solutions for leadership teams, board members, and managers that reshape organizational culture in ways that invite and celebrate gender equity. With practical steps to enhance mentorship opportunities, human resources practices, and management tactics, Beth and Eeva point a way forward by identifying the changes that need to be made to create a belonging culture.

  • Cultivating Mentors : Sharing Wisdom In Christian Higher Education

    $25.00

    Many colleges and universities informally highlight the value of mentoring among academic professionals.

    Yet scholars often lack clear definitions, goals, practices, and commitments that help them actually reap the benefits mentoring offers. As new faculty members from younger generations continue to face evolving challenges while also reshaping institutions, their ability to connect with more experienced mentors is critical to their vocations–and to the future of higher education.

    In Cultivating Mentors, a distinguished group of contributors explores the practice of mentoring in Christian higher education. Drawing on traditional theological understandings of the mentee-mentor relationship, they consider what goals should define such relationships and what practices make their cultivation possible among educators. With special attention to generational dynamics, they discuss how mentoring can help institutions navigate generational faculty transitions and cultivate rising leaders. Contributors include:

    *David Kinnaman
    *Tim Clydesdale
    *Margaret Diddams
    *Edgardo Colon-Emeric
    *Rebecca C. Hong
    *Tim Elmore
    *Beck A. Taylor
    *Stacy A. Hammons

    This book offers valuable insights and practical recommendations for faculty members, administrators, and policy makers. Whether pursuing their vocation in Christian or secular institutions, Christian scholars will benefit from the sharing of wisdom mapped out in Cultivating Mentors.

  • When Women Lead

    $18.99

    Much of what men and women both think about women, gender differences, and cultural norms is remarkably under-processed. Without the benefit of intentional conversation about the barriers women face, most women are left to enter the world of leadership with inadequate awareness and resources. The acknowledgement of a woman’s right to leadership is only the first step. We have not yet addressed the very common barriers women face when they enter the leadership arena, nor have we explored practical solutions to help them navigate those barriers so they can lead effectively.

    Women need to know that unrealistic optimism is a recipe for failure. Simply by acknowledging constraints to success, then exploring strategies to enhance leadership skills, we can help women take greater authority over their call to live out of a God-given identity and giftedness.

    When Women Lead is for men and women who advocate for female leadership within the Church. When women are educated about the challenges they face and are given resources to navigate beyond those challenges, their opportunity for success in ministry increases dramatically. The purpose of this book is to describe those challenges, explore practical solutions, and equip women to lead successfully and hopefully.

    While it is an excellent resource for women ready to enter leadership with more confidence and authority, it’s also perfect for denominational leaders charged with raising up women called to leadership roles, for lay leaders who want to better understand the dynamics at work when the pastor is a woman, and for husbands, parents, and friends who desperately want to support women in their life who are living out what God has given them to do.

    What if the Kingdom of God is straining toward the day when all God’s people are deployed in the work of the Great Commission? Women are already leading powerful movements around the world. The evangelistic explosion being documented in many closed countries is largely due to the leadership of women. Missionaries tell of the critical role of women in introducing the gospel to new groups. This book can help to equip a new generation of women to rise up with tools in hand to welcome and advance God’s Kingdom on earth.

  • Workers For Your Joy

    $19.99

    David Mathis Examines the Qualifications and Calling of Church Leaders for a New Generation of Congregants and Leaders

    We live in an age increasingly cynical about leadership-some of it for good reason, much of it simply the mood of our times. Still, the risen Christ continues the counter-cultural work he’s done for two millennia: he appoints leaders in his church-not as a burden, but as a gift to his people. “He gave . . . the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:11-12).

    What is the nature, calling, and work of local church leadership? Pastor and seminary professor David Mathis considers the elder qualifications in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 not only as prerequisites but as daily necessities to carry out joyfully. This accessible guide aims to serve current and aspiring pastors and elders, as well as church members who want to know the expectations for their leaders and how to pray for them. From the words of Christ to Peter and Paul and Hebrews, the New Testament casts a vision for church leaders that is good news to churches and leaders alike: joyful workers for the joy of their people.

    *Great Training for Current and Aspiring Pastors and Elders: Expands on the nature and work of local church leadership through the framework of its qualifications in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, and other passages

    *Useful for the Whole Church: Aims to help full-time pastors, lay elders, deacons, and seminary students, as well as church members eager to explore the true nature of leadership in the church and to pray intentionally for their own pastors

    *Explains 15 Virtues Church Leaders Should Pursue: Mathis shares Spirit-given competencies that Christian leaders can draw upon week in and week out to do the work to which Christ has called them

  • Hospitable Leader : Create Environments Where People And Dreams Flourish

    $18.00

    Everyone is a leader somewhere. Whether a parent, pastor, coach, or CEO, anyone can learn to lead hospitably.

    Hospitable leadership is a big idea. An urgently needed idea. In a world that far too often feels inhospitable, people are longing for leaders who create a climate that brings diverse people together to achieve desired and meaningful results. That’s what hospitable leaders do. Hospitable leaders create environments of welcome where moral leadership can more effectively influence an ever-expanding group of people to accomplish worthy goals together.

    Terry Smith has lived this paradigm-shifting message and has grown an incredibly diverse congregation with a robust leadership culture in the New York City metropolitan area.

    In The Hospitable Leader, he shares how to warm people’s hearts so they are more receptive to your leadership efforts. The many keys you will discover include how to:

    * Employ the metamorphic possibility of welcoming strangers to your circle of influence
    * Communicate transformative truths with grace
    * Make your dreams come true by helping others realize their own

    Practicing leadership with a hospitality mindset is the right way–the moral way–to lead people. But when understood properly, hospitable leadership has a radical edge.

    And it brings revolutionary results.

  • Lead Like It Matters Workbook

    $19.99

    It has been rightly said that Jesus is the hope of the world. While we can never argue against the importance of the power of the risen Son of God, it is also true that the local church is the hope of the world. After all, the church is the body of Christ. Jesus manifested himself through the church. And we, as the church, are chosen and called by God to be light in the darkness and give hope to the hopeless.

    For this reason, it is critical for the body of Christ–both pastors and laypeople alike–to learn how to lead like it matters. In this study guide, which accompanies the book of the same name, pastor and bestselling author Craig Groeschel shares what he has learned in more than twenty-six years of leading LifeChurch. The church began in a borrowed two-car garage, with ratty furnishings and faulty audiovisual equipment, but people were drawn there because they sensed a powerful, life-changing force that Craig calls it. While exactly what it is can be difficult to define, Craig reveals seven factors that contribute to it (or at least don’t kill it):

    Sessions include:

    1. Vision
    2. Divine Focus
    3. Unmistakable Camaraderie
    4. Innovative Minds
    5. Willingness to Fall Short
    6. Hearts Focused Outward
    7. Kingdom-Mindedness

    Craig also unpacks three important realms that every leader must master: (1) prioritizing mindset over model, (2) creating systems that empower it, and (3) finding a balanced way to lead to stay centered around it. While adopting these seven factors and realms will not guarantee a church will have that it factor, it will certainly lead that church toward it. It will help all of us lead like it matters.

  • Call To Follow

    $16.99

    Reexamining the Nature of Leadership and “Followership” in Light of Biblical Teaching

    The market is flooded with books, conferences, and workshops on how to be a better leader. In most companies, leaders are noticed and applauded while followers are often viewed as weak and passive. However, Scripture tells us a different story; although leadership is valued and respected, being obedient followers of Christ is at the very heart of faith.

    In The Call to Follow, Richard Langer and Joanne J. Jung teach readers that “followership” is essential to both organizational and spiritual flourishing. They argue that followership requires the development of specific skills and virtues modeled and extolled throughout Scripture. They point to examples of people from the Bible and church history who focused on following in the footsteps of their Savior rather than positions of leadership among others. This helpful book seeks to dismantle the idol of leadership that’s so prevalent in our culture and points us instead to the biblical concept of followership.

    *Biblically Centered: Contains examples of “followership” from Scripture and church history
    *Mission Oriented: Explains how being a follower of Jesus Christ is a missional calling
    *Community Focused: Written to encourage Christ followers, in both leadership and followership positions

  • Art Of Leading Change

    $22.99

    In The Art of Leading Change, author Mike Bonem asks: What is the primary distinction between the science and the art of change leadership? His answer: People! And leading people in churches and ministries is messy. The science of change leadership doesn’t ignore the human element, but it tends to overlook the differences between people and the significant impact those differences have on how to best lead change. The art of leading change is all about people. We can’t do the work God has called us to do without people, yet each individual–and each collection of individuals–is unique. This resource is a guide to better understand and practice the art of leading people through change.

    The heart of the book describes ten perspectives on leading change. Each perspective is captured in a memorable phrase that underscores an important principle, such as Lead with trust and Resisters are not the enemy. The ten perspectives are bookended by two other essential insights: The Challenge of Leading Change examines the contours and underlying factors that make change so difficult in ministry settings. The Courage for Change, at the book’s conclusion, explores the conviction and fortitude leaders will need for the change journey.

    Leading change in a church has never been easy. It has become far more difficult as our society has become increasingly complex, fractured, and secular. Even though change is challenging, pastors and ministry leaders cannot be satisfied with maintaining the status quo. Whether you’re leading from the first chair or some other role, and whether the changes you face are big or small, The Art of Leading Change will be a valuable addition to your leadership toolkit.

  • Rooted Leadership : Seeking God’s Answers To The Eleven Core Questions Ever

    $29.99

    Behind many of the challenges facing us today is a failure of leadership. This is not a new problem. Yearning for wise guidance and effective authority is a perennial human longing. We need leaders who are credible, competent and committed. But many leaders seem to be caught up, even consumed, with their own power and agendas. Some see the leadership crisis as an intellectual problem, believing we lack a clear theory of leadership. Others view the breakdown of leadership as a result of increasing deficiency in moral character.

    Most leadership books today revolve around the concepts of motivation, inspiration, empowerment, and teamwork. Helpful as these themes might be, they miss something more fundamental. Leadership needs a theological foundation, that will be useful for shaping the undergirding principles, and evaluating current leadership theories and practices. We need to view leadership from the vantage point of God.

    In Rooted Leadership, John E. Johnson explores how Christian theology provides an overarching leadership framework and applies that theory to leadership practices. Spiritual reflection, guided by scripture, points us to the very center of leadership–God–and the purpose of leadership–that we might display his glory. All the best forms of leading take their cues from who God is, his purposes, and his ways of working with people that he has progressively revealed.

    Building on three decades of research, study, and experience as a global leader, Johnson surveys the landscape of contemporary leadership theory, unpacks the assumptions and beliefs that underly current trends, and responds by offering a robust approach to leadership, founded on the character, work, and words of God.

  • All In : How To Risk Everything For Everything That Matters

    $25.00

    All In: Risking Everything for Everything that Matters by author W. Allen Morris is a freedom manual for hard-driving, success-oriented leaders who are ready to explore the terra incognita of their hidden self in order to find and experience the life they deeply want –the path to greater freedom, joy, creativity, and power.

    All of us are leaders, or have the potential to be, in our circle of influence–in our work, in our families, and in our world. We will either be powerfully healing, inspiring, and effective leaders or hurtful and injuring leaders. The difference is in the awareness and healing we have experienced in our secret inner life.

    As a business leader and entrepreneur, Allen Morris discovered that the very same drive and skills that had brought him so much success were also sabotaging everything and everyone he cared about. It was as if an unseen enemy was at work behind the scenes, ambushing his happiness and undoing his relationships right as he stepped into the winner’s circle. And he noticed he was not alone in his struggle.

    All In: Risking Everything for Everything that Matters follows the author’s story and that of other CEOs and leaders who found themselves stuck or unfulfilled but chose to risk authenticity and transparency to understand how their blind spots and childhood wounds were limiting their true potential. Drawing on the insights of neuroscience, psychology, addiction recovery, and biblical wisdom–and sharing dramatic stories from his own life and those of other leaders–Morris delivers a practical and inspiring plan for how men can achieve exponentially greater effectiveness, fulfillment, creativity, and influence for good.

  • What Was I Thinking

    $22.99

    How do you know when the rewards outweigh the risks?

    If you want to reach your full potential in life, you can’t play it safe. If you’re too risk averse, you’ll be resigned to a life of mediocrity. But if you risk foolishly, you may destroy your life’s work and legacy.

    But we can be overwhelmed by the sheer number of decisions we face, and the challenge of weighing the risks and rewards of each. In all this confusion, how can you be sure you won’t end up asking yourself, what was I thinking?

  • Non Anxious Presence

    $15.99

    For much of recent history individuals and institutions could plan, execute, and flourish with their visions of a better world. Volatile, complex forces could be addressed and confronted with planning and management. But crisis is a great revealer. It knocks us off our thrones. It uncovers the weaknesses in our strategies and brings to light our myths and idols. Our past strategies run aground, smashed by unpredictable and chaotic waves. Yet in the midst of the chaos of a crisis comes opportunity. The history of the church tells us that crisis always precedes renewal, and the framework of renewal offers us new ways forward. A Non-Anxious Presence shows how that renewal happens and offers churches and leaders strategic ways to awaken the Church and see our culture changed for Christ.

  • Running With Purpose

    $28.99

    Discover how Brooks Running Company CEO Jim Weber transformed a failing business into a billion-dollar brand in the ultracompetitive global running market.

    This leadership memoir starts with Jim Weber’s seventh-grade dream to run a successful company that delivered something people passionately valued. Fast forward to 2001, Jim Weber became the CEO of Brooks. He was on his way to fulfilling his dream, but he faced strong headwinds. Jim was the struggling brand’s fourth CEO in two years, and the staff betting pool had him lasting four months.

    A lifelong competitor, Jim devised a one-page strategy that he believed would not only save the company but would also lay the foundation for Brooks to become a leading brand in the athletic, fitness, and outdoor categories. To succeed, Jim had to get his team to first believe it was possible and then employ the conviction, fortitude, and constancy of purpose to out-execute much larger brands. Brooks’ success was validated when Warren Buffett made it a standalone Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary in 2012.

    In the pages of Running with Purpose, you will find:

    *The untold David vs. Goliath challenger brand story in which Brooks’s bold strategy and unique brand positioning fueled its move from the back of the pack to lead.

    *The key to building a purpose-driven brand that is oriented around customer obsession, building trust, competing with heart, and having fun along the way.

    *The six clear leadership lessons Jim has learned along his path and applies at Brooks to help managers at all levels develop into authentic leaders.

    *How Berkshire Hathaway’s support and influence provided a tailwind for Brooks’ business and brand to surge.

    *A riveting inside look at the ups and downs of Jim’s personal journey, which led to his conviction that life is too short not to enjoy what you do and the people by your side.

    Running with Purpose is a highly engaging read with insights, inspirational stories, and tangible takeaways for current and aspiring leaders, entrepreneurs, Berkshire Hathaway enthusiasts, and especially the 150+ million runners worldwide and those in the broader running community who continually invest in themselves and put positive energy into the world.

  • Black In Blue

    $19.99

    Whatever your positions on Black Lives Matter, defunding the police, and equity in law enforcement, former police chief Carmen Best shares the leadership lessons she learned as the first Black woman to lead the Seattle Police Department–a personal insider story that will challenge your assumptions on how to move the country forward.

    Chief Carmen Best has spent the last 28 years as a member of a major big-city police force, an institution where minorities and women have historically found it especially difficult to succeed. She defied the odds and became the first Black woman to lead the Seattle Police Department.

    In her tenure, she was successful in bringing significantly more diversity to the force. However, when the city council cut her budget in the midst of months of protests against police violence across the nation, she had no choice but to step aside. Without the city’s support, she felt she wouldn’t be able to continue changing the status quo of the police force from within.

    Throughout her career, Chief Best has learned lessons that those coming up behind her can benefit from. In this book, she will use her story to share those urgent lessons. Readers will read about:

    *How Chief Best grew up to believe in the change she set out to create.

    *Her early days in the police force, including lessons from the academy and her time on patrol.

    *How she progressed in her career within a primarily white law enforcement culture and the events that led to her becoming Chief.

    *How she built her team and overcame the politics involved in her high-level position until the call for defunding came.

    Carmen Best teaches readers the core qualities and mindset to persevere and rise through the ranks, even within a workplace whose culture and leadership must be challenged, and policies changed on the way to achieving that vision. Her story is one of motivation and serves as a masterclass in guiding principles for anyone striving to serve their community and rise to the highest echelon of success.

  • All In : How Obsessive Leaders Achieve The Extraordinary

    $19.99

    What makes great leaders like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk extraordinary? All In shows leaders and aspiring leaders how obsession can fuel the most incredible success, but also take a toll on a leader, his or her family and work colleagues.

    Groundbreaking leaders share a passionate commitment to achieving their vision that borders and sometimes crosses the line into obsession. All In shows how obsession, if properly focused and managed, is both necessary and productive. Advances in any endeavor almost always depend on a small group of individuals who are completely consumed by the goal they’re pursuing. When these leaders and their teams are successful, everyone benefits from their singular focus and relentless drive.

    All In explores the three obsessions underlying the achievements of great leaders:

    *Delighting customers
    *Building great products
    *Creating an enduring company

    By taking you inside the success stories of iconic leaders, including Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Elon Musk of Tesla, and Steve Jobs of Apple, author Robert Bruce Shaw shows the upside of obsession and the practices that support it. Shaw also provides insight into the dark side of obsession and its destructive potential – as illustrated in his case study of Uber during the final years of Travis Kalanick’s leadership tenure. Appealing to any reader of entrepreneurial biographies, All In shows individuals and organizations how to manage obsession’s downsides while realizing the benefits of striving to create something that truly matters.

  • Aspiring Leaders Guide To The Future

    $24.99

    Leadership is not what it used to be and not what it once was. Too many leaders today are calibrated for a world that no longer exists. And people are demanding something so much different in leaders of today. Like a new house outfitted with the greatest VHS system on the planet, too many leaders are addressing today’s problems with the style and substance of yesterday’s leadership.

    In The Aspiring Leader’s Guide to the Future, author Clay Scroggins uncovers nine counterintuitive axioms of leadership that will help leaders adapt to the rate of change while becoming today’s version of a leader worth following. For every principle of leadership, there is a counter principle that only those knee-deep in the mess of everyday life can understand. With the rapid nature of change happening today, these counter principles provide a new way forward for today’s leaders.

    With disarming candor and simplicity, Clay dispels several age-old myths of what makes a great leader, showing why the old way needs updating. Today’s leaders rarely feel ready to lead, don’t always have the right people on the bus, and are more willing to be vulnerable even when they don’t have the answers. The way forward requires an understanding of the past, a conviction of what’s at stake today, and a vision for how different tomorrow will be.

    There is a moment coming in your life that will require great leadership. Whether or not you’re able to rise to the occasion will be determined by how much you understand the substance and style of leadership required for today. Good news, though. You don’t have to wait for tomorrow’s leadership challenge to begin. As soon as you’re ready to see it and accept it, leading like this and not like that can start today!

    With the world changing so rapidly, many leaders are struggling to find new ways to make a significant and positive impact on their team. The key, says Tom Ziglar, is to consistently bring out the best in everyone by focusing on ten core virtues: kindness, humility, respect, persistence, selflessness, encouragement, positive expectations, self-control, firmness, and hope.

    Delivering cutting-edge new research, wisdom gleaned from experience, and poignant insights from his work at Zig Ziglar Corp, Tom Ziglar identifies the communication styles that will keep everyone on the same page, regardless of their working environment.

    In 10 Leadership Virtues for Disruptive Times, Ziglar shows why “coach leadership,” instead of management leadership, is the best way to lead through immense change and challenge. It is essential guidance for leaders who want to coach their teams through inevitable periods of disruption with the goal of helping them thrive at home and at work.

  • unReceptive : A Better Way To Sell, Lead, And Influence

    $27.99

    In sharp contrast to the traditional approach to selling, learn how shifting the focus from crafting the perfect message to creating receptivity to your message will not only help you convert the formerly unwinnable customer but also transform the relationships that matter most.

    Any time we are trying to influence another person, there are two dimensions at play. The first is a person’s willingness to listen; the second is what we say. Unfortunately, most of us have been taught to focus on the second. Which is why sales is an industry with a 98% failure rate. The ability to convert the 80%+ of people who are unreceptive, requires a new mindset and skillset.

    In unReceptive, Tom Stanfill shares his proven methodology that has been road-tested for decades by hundreds of thousands of sales professionals, workshop participants, and industry experts who have used the tools in this book to convert even the most disinterested of prospects and customers.

    Unpacking the same mindset and skillset that has made Tom’s sales training company a successful and sought-after secret weapon in sales conversions, in unReceptive you will learn: ?

    *The one decision you can make before every meeting or call that will drastically improve your ability to convert the unreceptive.

    *How to eliminate resistance and make selling easy and enjoyable, while experiencing a deeper sense of purpose.

    *To master a new approach to navigating the most challenging barriers in sales–opening a “closed” door, uncovering the unfiltered truth, and converting the most jaded customers and prospects.

    *To adopt the tested and true operating system the top 1% of the most persuasive and influential people have that the other 99% do not.

    These are not new gimmicks or sales tricks. unreceptive unleashes the power of a sales method that has worked for hundreds of thousands of salespeople all over the world, shifting the focus from crafting the perfect message to creating receptivity, and flipping the entire art of selling on its head.

  • Of Kings And Prophets

    $24.99

    Power is only as strong as the authority that sustains it.

    This book will help you be a better leader. It will help you receive a healthy dose of accountability through applied spiritual authority.

    The biblical prophets did not live or prophesy in a contextual vacuum. They spoke into real-life circumstances to real-life leaders such as kings, queens, governors, and generals. Drawing largely on the biblical accounts, Dr. Mark Rutland shows how these interactions, sometimes in the form of advice but more often as dramatic confrontations, demonstrate the tension between heaven’s authority and the princes of this world. Readers will discover that:

    *God positions His messengers to confront and advise those who lead in the natural realm. Likewise, Satan is also working to position his own servants near the world’s leaders hoping to steer them away from the things and plans of God. To whom those leaders listen will determine, to a large extent, the fate of nations.

    *God often positions His servants at the right elbow of leaders in a wide range of disciplines, from business to education to entertainment to politics. Every believer should be open to being “God’s prophetic voice” in someone else’s life, whether that person is a child, a boss, or a town councilman. Likewise, every believer should be in constant prayer for and humbly sensitive to wise counsel sent from God as a gift of grace.

    God makes and unmakes kings. When they can discern and listen to His voice, He sustains their well-wielded authority with His supernatural power.

  • Change Has Changed

    $16.99

    The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said change is the only constant in life.

    But the world has experienced so much upheaval since January 2020 that change itself has changed! In business, the church, and nonprofits, leaders are being left in the dust as events and challenges speed by in a blur. The pace of change was accelerating before…but the pandemic pressed the pedal to the floor.

    “We’re at an inflection point,” says leadership architect and change strategist Sam Chand. “The way things were isn’t the way things will be.”

    In his new book Change Has Changed, Sam sets out to help leaders understand the evolving nature of change so that they can guide their organizations with wisdom and confidence.

    He examines three major shifts that he likens to three simultaneous earthquakes:

    *Our environment has changed. People are working from home, many businesses may never reopen, and the way we shop, handle health needs, and even go to church has changed.

    *We have changed. We’ve learned to live with rampant uncertainty and a raft full of nagging fears–but our bodies and our souls weren’t meant for this!

    *The people around ushave changed. They are frustrated, isolated, depressed, anxious, and angry. They just don’t feel safe.

    Sam tackles these and related issues head-on by offering lessons that will empower leaders to be ready for the next normal.

    “We used to talk about a new normal as if it’s the end point of change,” Sam explains, “but if we’ve learned anything in the past months, it’s that change is perpetual, and we need to anticipate the next one on the horizon.”

    From the New York Times bestselling author of The Mentor Leader and Quiet Strength comes a book sure to transform your team or organization!

    For most people, succeeding in life requires mastering the art of teamwork. Whether at work, school, church, or home, virtually everyone is part of a team-and when they work well, teams can accomplish more than individuals working by themselves.But not all teams are created equal.

    As a former Super Bowl-winning coach, Tony Dungy is an expert at building and bringing out the best in a team. Drawing on his experiences from years of coaching and working with other leaders, this football fable lays out four essential principles practiced by truly effective teams. Telling the story of a fictional NFL team looking for a turnaround, The Soul of a Team not only identifies some of the most common issues that hold a team back but also lays out a game plan for winning teamwork.

  • Gift : How Your Leadership Can Serve Your Church

    $35.99

    Pastors face two temptations when they consider church leadership: one, common in more culturally conservative churches, is simply to preach faithfully and assume that that alone is adequate Christian leadership; the other, common in more culturally contemporary churches, is to apply secular business wisdom, but uncritically. The books published mirror the two camps.

    Both drive a wedge between the Bible and leadership.

    What if the gift of leadership was a clear outworking of biblical teaching? What if there is in the Bible a consistent pattern of human communities flourishing under the good rule of God’s Word.

    Drawing on years of teaching and ministry, Chris Green shows us how, as Mike Ovey put it, Christian leaders can be God’s best possible gift to flourishing communities.

  • Gospel Shaped Leader

    $17.99

    How do you grow as a leader in the church? Should you read church growth books? Take a few seminars? Or just wing it? Scott Thomas, former director of Acts 29, church planter, and pastor has a different approach. He unpacks how leaning on Jesus empowers not just your teaching, but also grows the humility and biblical wisdom you need to lead.

    Through many years of ministry experience, Thomas has seen the importance of the “soft skills” of leadership–empathy, kindness, and listening–and how not developing those skills negatively impacts churches. Yet simply knowing the need for what the world calls “emotional intelligence,” doesn’t guarantee growth in these areas. But understanding and applying the gospel will bring transformation.

    Thomas gives practical, specific help in navigating relational challenges that leaders commonly encounter and unpacks how a gospel-shaped response brings healing. Complete with reflection questions at the end of each chapter to encourage self-inventory and further study, The Gospel Shaped Leader will encourage church leaders of all ages in the categories of self-awareness, self-management, relational awareness, and relational management, with the goal of recognizing strengths and weaknesses so they can continue growing more like Christ.

  • Innovation Crisis : Creating Disruptive Influence In The Ministry You Lead

    $16.99

    If you aren’t innovating, stagnation isn’t far away.

    Ministry leaders carry the burden of keeping their organizations lean, focused, and relevant. The stakes are especially high for churches and other organizations that fulfill the Great Commission. When souls are on the line, there’s no room for bureaucratic bloat or sustaining a cumbersome infrastructure. It’s up to the leadership-that’s you-to realize where the organization is in maintenance mode and find ways to innovate even when the growth curve has slowed and the team has started to grow complacent.

    Using missions disruptor William Carey as an example, Ted Esler shows how you, too, can innovate in ways that change the ministry landscape. Esler will help you keep an eye on your “eccliosystem”-the ecclesial ecosystem in which you exist. You’ll learn about the four stages of organizational culture-disrupting, innovating, sustaining, and stagnating-and gain strategies for staying in that sweet spot where innovations keep coming and stagnation can’t take hold.

    The gospel of Jesus Christ never grows stale. Don’t let your ministry ever forget it!

  • Big Results Leadership

    $17.99

    The success of any leadership is all too often pointed to the characteristics of good leadership. The reality is that many of us are fully aware of the qualities of a good leader. Book after book in the pastoral community may light the path to good leadership but rarely gives us the markers that allow us to discern if we are still moving in the right direction.

    Big Results: Leadership tackles that obstacle by guiding our future leaders in their early steps but also points to the “results” of that kind of leadership. The main take away from this read is that God-centered leadership always yields big results.

  • 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.

  • Becoming Trader Joe

    $19.99

    Build an iconic shopping experience that your customers love-and a work environment that your employees love being a part of-using this blueprint from Trader Joe’s visionary founder, Joe Coulombe.

    Infuse your organization with a distinct personality and culture that draws customers in a way that simply competing on price cannot.

    Joe Coulombe founded what would become Trader Joe’s in the late 1960s and helped shape it into the beloved, quirky food chain it is today. Realizing early on that he could not compete and win by playing the same game his bigger competitors were playing, he decided to build a store for educated people of somewhat modest means. He brought in unusual products from around the world and promoted them in the Fearless Flyer, providing customers with background on how they were sourced and their nutritional value. He also gave the stores a tiki theme to reinforce the exotic trader ship concept with employees wearing Hawaiian shirts.

    In this way, Joe laid down a blueprint for other business owners to follow to build their own unique shopping experience that customers love, and a work environment that employees love being a part of.

    In Becoming Trader Joe, Joe shares the lessons he learned by challenging the status quo and rethinking the way a business operates. He shows readers of all types:

    *How moving from a pure analytical approach to a more creative, problem-solving approach can drive innovation.

    *How finding an affluent niche of passionate customers can be a better strategy than competing on price and volume.

    *How questioning all aspects of the way you do business leads to powerful results.

    *How to build a business around your values and identity.

  • Legacy Of Leaders

    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.

    $28.00

    Fuel success and grow your team at every level of leadership.

    True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than “the boss” people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

    The 5 Levels of Leadership are:
    1. Position – People follow because they have to.

    2. Permission – People follow because they want to.

    3. Production – People follow because of what you have done for the organization.

    4. People Development – People follow because of what you have done for them personally.

    5. Pinnacle – People follow because of who you are and what you represent.
    Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

  • Faithful Leaders : And The Things That Matter Most

    “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 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.

  • Starfish And The Spirit

    $19.99

    Leveraging the metaphor Ori popularized in his NYT best-selling book, The Starfish and the Spider, Ori Brafman shows why the distributed structures of starfish organizations are uniquely fit to the church. They can function without a rigid central authority, and their regenerative abilities make them nimbler in reacting to external forces. Seeding starfish networks inside todays churches will prepare the church of tomorrow to be agile while still maintaining the necessary accountability to be effective.

    Rather than advocating the adoption of a starfish structure in place of the hierarchy of the spider, Brafman, along with pastors Lance Ford and Rob Wegner, emphasize the advantages of adapting the structure and order inherent in a spider organization toward a hybrid model–either a Spiderfish approach (leaning toward centralization) or a Starder approach (leaning toward decentralization).

    The Starfish and the Spirit is about creating a culture where church leaders view themselves as curators of a community on mission, not the source of certainty for every question and project. It is about creating a team of humble leaders “in the middle” of the church, not at the top–leaders who naturally reproduce multiple generations of leaders, from the middle out on mission. Imagine a church led by a team whose gifts and talents are completely unleashed, enabling everyone to show up and step up with all they really are. The joy and vigor coming from the collective strength, intelligence, and skill in the community of leaders not only brings greater potency but better yields for your ministry as well. What would it be like to see this kind of healthy leadership reproduced into the second, third, and fourth generation, on multiple strands?

  • Einsteins Boss : 10 Rules For Leading Genius

    $19.99

    When employees are exceptional, everyday rules no longer apply. In 1933, Albert Einstein fled Nazi Germany for the leafy streets of Princeton, NJ. He would have been welcome anywhere, but Einstein joined the Institute for Advanced Study, bestowing instant credibility on the fledgling research center. Abraham Flexner, the institute’s founder, wasn’t a physicist or mathematician-but he was a gifted administrator. Under his leadership, IAS became a global powerhouse, home to 33 Nobel Laureates, 38 Field Medalists, and myriad winners of the Wolf and MacArthur prizes. The team of thinkers that Flexner assembled produced some of the greatest scientific advances of the 20th century. The man had a knack for leading genius. Einstein’s Boss filters Flexner’s practices through the lens of modern business, where industries from computing to engineering to biotechnology compete for top talent and cutting-edge innovations. Original and insightful, the book explains how to spot the deep thinkers who will transform your business-and reveals 10 rules for guiding them to greatness, including: * Get out of the way: Allow brilliant people ownership of their projects * Shut up and listen: Consider their input openly before reaching conclusions * Turn over the rocks: Be completely transparent-a genius will figure out what you’re hiding anyway * Practice alchemy: Mix complementary minds together for maximum effect * Let the problem seduce: Frame challenges in a way that captures the imagination and draws them toward the goal * Quit chasing squirrels: Guide innovation towards the core mission. Leading people who are smarter than you is no easy task. But for managers who learn to channel brainpower into breakthroughs, the rewards are boundless.

    *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.”

  • Leading From The Second Chair

    $18.99

    They say it’s lonely at the top. And it can be even lonelier when you are almost at the top. Church leaders who hold second-chair positions are under tremendous pressure. They are expected to do their jobs and provide leadership but to defer to the top leader too. It’s a demanding balancing act. How can they lead effectively while serving under someone else’s leadership?

    Leading from the Second Chair offers an invaluable resource to leaders who serve in second- (and third- and fourth-) chair roles, enabling them to become more productive, proactive, and fulfilled. The book reveals the paradoxes of second chair leadership. These leaders must be subordinate to the top leader yet lead in their own right. They should be deep in their expertise but wide in perspective. And they must be content in their jobs yet remain enthusiastic about their dreams for the future.

    Mike Bonem and Roger Patterson share their own and others’ experiences of failure and success in this vital role. They offer support and practical advice for reshaping the way second-chair leaders can serve well and improve the overall performance of their church or organization. Leading from the Second Chair equips readers with the positive attitudes, skills, and strategies needed to become powerful leaders who will survive and thrive in God’s service.

  • Tempered Resilience : How Leaders Are Formed In The Crucible Of Change

Exploring the qualities of adaptive leadership within churches and nonprofit organizations, Tod Bolsinger deftly examines both the external challenges we face and the internal resistance that holds us back, showing how leaders can become both stronger and more flexible.

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.

  • Wisdom From Babylon

    $25.00

    What does it mean to provide leadership for the church in an increasingly secular context? When religion is privatized and secularism reigns in the public square, Christians are often drawn toward either individualist escapism or constant cultural warfare. But might this context instead offer a fresh invitation for the church to adapt and thrive? Gordon Smith is passionate about the need for capable, mature leaders to navigate and respond to a changing society. In this book, he draws on his extensive experience as a university president, pastor, and international speaker to open a multidisciplinary conversation about the competencies and capacities essential for today’s leaders. After analyzing the phenomenon of secularization in the West and charting common Christian responses, Smith introduces four sources of wisdom to help guide us through this new terrain: the people and prophets of Judah during the Babylonian exile, the early church in its pagan environment, contemporary churches across the Global South, and Christian thinkers in post-Christian Europe. From these resources he identifies practices and strategies-from liturgy and catechesis to mission and hospitality-that can give shape to faithful, alternate communities in such a time as this. In cultures fraught with fear and division, Smith calls for leaders who can effect change from the margins, promote unity and maturity among Christians, and provide a non-anxious presence grounded in the presence of Christ. Educators, church leaders, and anyone seeking to understand the times will find this book to be an indispensable resource for cultivating distinctively Christian leadership.

  • Lead Strong : Developing Character For Ministry Leadership

    $33.95

    New leaders have tremendous potential to be the next generation of church leaders, but for many, biblical character development was not a foundational part of growing up.

    Pastor Philip J. Rasmussen, vice president of church relations and spiritual formation at Northwest University, draws on his experience working closely with pastors and students to outline the problems to developing the next generation of church leaders-as well as solutions.

    He knows how concerned church leaders are with finding qualified ministerial replacements, but he also knows most students have not been prepared to live a life in ministry. If they don’t get the guidance they need, a shortage of qualified individuals looms on the horizon.

    Lead Strong starts with the premise that a person must fully embrace the Fruit of Spirit as the vital elements for character development. When the Fruit of Spirit is present in a believer’s life, essential leadership qualities will naturally flow as the leader influences people.

    This book can be used for ministry training sessions, small group studies, or one’s individual devotional development. Its purpose is to reveal the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer and to clearly describe the fruit that His presence should bear in one’s character.

  • Whats In Your Hand

    After decades of tending sheep, Moses is suddenly thrown into one of the greatest and most challenging leadership roles in the Old Testament. His first assignment on the job? Free two million Israelite slaves and lead them through the desert.

    As leaders, many of us can relate to Moses’s feeling of inadequacy in the face of daunting and unknown leadership landscapes that lie before us. In What’s in Your Hand, author Eddie Estep follows Moses’s incredible, sea-splitting journey and offers important leadership lessons that include:

    – Hearing God’s voice
    – Leading through change
    – Managing emotion in leadership
    – Activating your leadership team

    From a timid, self-effacing shepherd to a mighty biblical figure, the life of Moses teaches us a valuable lesson. God is not looking for a perfect leader with a powerful scepter but only a willing servant gripping a staff. “What’s in your hand?” God asks each of us as he calls us to serve and lead the people God loves.
