This is the monthly "learning" book that our District Leadership Team is all reading together for July. I am in charge of guiding our discussion so I try and get the books read a little ahead of time so that there is a little time for the information to ruminate in my mind.

This is an excellent book about how to start a church, maintain the church, get people to come and what type of pastor to be.

Excellent book on how to Lead. All of the examples are about a large church or planting a church, but many principles are practical in all contexts.
