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.
