Our L.E.A.D. Academy “book club” meetings will be on the following Monday nights from 7:00-9:00 pm:
On September 24, I introduced the eight qualities of a healthy church from Color Your World with Natural Church Development by Christian Swartz and be answering questions. The discussion will be most productive if you will read the book ahead of the meeting day. You can purchase the book for $15 (on sale now, normally $18.95) as follows: https://www.churchsmart.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=COL
October 29 3 Colors of Ministry by Christian Schwarz is part of the NCD series. This book focuses on using our spiritual gifts. This does not replace our DESIGN curriculum but deals more with the values of gift based ministry
November 26 3 Colors of Leadership by Christian Schwarz is part of the NCD series. This book focuses on how to empower your team members and lead create leadership culture so we always have enough workers and leaders.
Jan 28 Toxic Charity by Robert Lupton is about how churches and and charities hurt those they help and what we can do in our outreach to actually help.
February 25 Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni is one of my favorite leadership books and it focuses on what we do to help create a great leadership culture. All the strategy in the world cannot work unless we change the culture.
Culture eats strategy for breakfast! Let’s make ours the healthiest leadership culture we possibly can so that we communicate well and avoid ambiguity in expectations. I hope you can join us for one or ALL of them. If you cannot, please feel free to read the books anyhow, and then join us when we offer these again next fall for the 2019-2020 L.E.A.D. academy.
