Friday’s List | December 16

Share via:

I’ve been meaning to do this for quite awhile. I’m asked for recommendations all the time. I’ll be posting a short list every Friday.

Here are the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:

Here’s what I’m reading right now:

5 Eye-Opening Reasons Other People Don’t Value Your Time by Carey Nieuwhof.

15 New Books I Recommend by Brad Lomenick. This is a short and sweet, no frills, list but a very good list.

Three Questions Every Small Group Ministry Must Answer by James Emery White. You don’t have to agree. You do need to read for perspective.


Simply Brilliant: How Great Organizations Do Ordinary Things in Extraordinary Ways by Bill Taylor,  This is a read and then read again kind of book.

Here’s what I’m listening to:

Small Group Metrics: What to Measure and Why with Bill Willits on the Small Group Network Podcast. This is an excellent insider look at North Point’s practices.

Marcus Buckingham — Capitalizing on Your Personal Strength on the EntreLeadership Podcast.

How to Build a Leadership Development Pipeline with Eric Geiger and Kevin Peck on the Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast.

Quote I’m wrestling with:

“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.” Winston Churchill

App I’m using:

I’m committed this year to increasing my effectiveness. Nozbe is a leading productivity app. First heard about it from Michael Hyatt. It’s already making a big difference.

My own post I hope you’re reading:

Are You Prioritizing the Launch of New Groups? Really hope you caught this one. If you’re not prioritizing the launch of new groups, you can’t expect to build a thriving small group ministry.
