If you haven’t checked out the 7 Practices of Effective Ministry you are missing a great resource.  In my opinion this the most strategic walk-through of how to become more intentional in your effort available today.  I actually believe this is such a great tool, it would be very helpful no matter the kind of organization you’re leading.  Great ideas throughout.  And very practical all the way through.

Want a preview of the 7 practices?  Check out Practically Speaking, a great new podcast resource from Northpoint that lays out the 7 ideas.  Each practice has its own podcast featuring Andy Stanley and Reggie Joiner (the books authors).  The audio quality is a little tinny.  The content is great.  You will find it very helpful.

Or check out my July archives for a sample of the cool strategies from the book.  No doubt, one of the top 5 books I’ve read in the last two years.

Out.
