fridays-listEvery Friday I post a short list of the things I’m reading, listening to, loving and wrestling with:

Here’s what I’m reading right now:

TEN MAJOR TRENDS FOR CHURCHES IN 2017 by Thom Rainer. An important list to take in.

6 Disruptive Church Trends That Will Rule 2017 by Carey Nieuwhof. Must Read!

Preparing Your Group Ministry for Generation Z by Rob Timms on Definitely something we must be aware of (particularly in light of what James Emery White is talking about on the Carey Nieuwhof podcast).

Beyond the E-Myth: The Evolution of an Enterprise: From a company of 1 to a company of 1000 by Michael E. Gerber. When you listen to Rick Warren or Andy Stanley, they will tell you about the role Michael Gerber’s E-Myth played in their organizational thinking. This is Gerber’s latest version (and it’s on sale for $1.99 in the Kindle!).

Here’s what I’m listening to:

James Emery White On The Rise Of Generation Z: A Post-Christian, Post-Millennial Generation on the Carey Nieuwhof podcast. MUST Listen.

The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Performance by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. I’m testing out Audible for absorbing an additional book every month.

Lean Start-Up (Part 1 of 2) | Eric Swanson | Exponential  This is a video of a breakout at Exponential. Excellent and so applicable to church planters or starters of ministry.

Lean Start-Up (Part 2 of 2) | Eric Swanson | Exponential  This is part two of Eric Swanson’s breakout at Exponential. Very good.

Quote I’m wrestling with:

“Those who fear the new are the ones who have mastered the old.” Simon Sinek

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.
