More Influence: 21 From-the-Gut Lessons for Kingdom Leaders

I’ve collected together 21 of my favorite posts (from now almost 1,500 blog posts over seven years) about leadership and I’ve issued this free ebook. Normally, I argue that there is no such thing anymore as “ebooks.” Rather there are simply books that start with “e.” In other words, the walls between traditional and online publishing are crumbling rapidly. But for this particular project, I have purposely left these blog posts, for the most part, unedited. They are raw, still in the form I originally shared them in, and each was written within the context of my experience at the moment.

Therefore, I call these “lessons from the trenches.” They often represent my gut reactions in the moment to an issue I was facing at the moment. Please help me spread the word! Hit the “Like” button, the “tweet” button, share it on LinkedIn, etc. It’s wisdom, free of charge!

Throw Off the Leisure Suit: Get Unstuck!

Hang Up the Leisure Suit: Get Unstuck

Tony Morgan has released some pretty great books, many of which are available as free ebooks (which are actually books, but with an “e”). He’s just released a new follow-up book and it’s well worth checking out. Here’s his description:

The first eBook in this series, The Leisure Suit Trap: 8 Reasons Your Church Is Stuck, focused on why churches are stuck, defining the challenge at hand. This second installment addresses how your church can get unstuck. That leisure suit may have looked good back in the ’70s, but it’s time to get a new wardrobe.

Mini-Book Release: Using Twitter for Ministry

Twitter for MinistryI’ve had this thought for a year now, I’d love to release a little book with some information on using Twitter for Ministry, but a hectic schedule has prevented me from doing so. But here it is – Twitter for Ministry.

I recount the story of how Twitter has affected my own life and a few of the unique opportunities that have opened up as a result of using it. I also offer some basic “getting started” tips, some guiding principles, and some explanation about how I’m using built-in Twitter tools for ministry purposes.

I’m offering it for $10 giving it away. So take a look…

Twitter for Ministry

If you’ve read it, feel free to rave about it below or share a testimony of how Twitter has been useful in your ministry.

This Might Be a Good Time to Publish Your EBook

Or eBook, or Ebook, or however you’d like to spell it. eBooks are on the rise. The invention of the internet (thanks Al) has leveled the playing field and has changed everything. I comment about this all the time, so I’ll just show off this pretty graphic (hat tip to The Next Web).
