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:

When Large Churches Get Stuck: Reducing the Span of Care by Tony Morgan. Several great insights that will help you think about growing your church and what might be keeping you stuck.

Does Your Church Website Have an Easter Page? by Greg Atkinson. Great resource! You’ll find this helpful as you prepare for Easter.

The End Of Culture Fit  by Lars Schmidt and Forbes. Very interesting from a hiring practice standpoint. HT Tim Stevens.

To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, & Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World by James Davison Hunter. This is not an easy read, but the payoff is very big.

Here’s what I’m listening to:

CNLP 132: Greg Atkinson On The Secrets Of A Secret Church Shopper: What People Are Looking For When They Come To Your Church. Very helpful and provides some great insights into understanding the way first time guests see your church.

Creating a Culture of Continual Improvement, Part 1 by Andy Stanley. Enough said. This is very good.

Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track – and Keeping It There by Les McKeown. I’m testing out Audible for absorbing an additional book every month.

Quote I’m wrestling with:

“The main reason why Christian believers today (from various communities) have not had the influence in the culture to which they have aspired is not that they don’t believe enough, or try hard enough, or care enough, or think Christianly enough, or have the right worldview, but rather because they have been absent from the arenas in which the greatest influence in the culture is exerted.” James Davison Hunter, To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, & Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World.

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:

How to Launch a Short-Term On-Campus Strategy (that leads to off-campus groups). This innovation has added a third important strategy to connect unconnected people.
