==> Watch this space! Reality Check 101 is coming out January 5th, 2013!!!
I believe that every church has a calling or a vocation from God, but today, maybe only one in ten is living into that calling. What distinguishes the churches that live into their call and the others is not size, financial strength, or theology, but this:
Every church does things for God, but churches living into their vocation are doing things with God that make a difference in the world.
One could say that good congregations are intuitively ‘missional,’ this means that they feel in their gut a need to be doing good and are intentionally seeking creative ways to work with God. Even the best congregations experience times when they fall from this place of grace.
When I speak to church leaders, I often present them with the Spiral Rule, "Congregations that focus outward, go upward. Those that don't plummet downward towards a selfish singularity."
My resources are geared towards helping churches recover their spiritual passion and missional vision.

follow the various links you’ll notice that I offer a multitude of short simple
resources. I have written nine books to support congregations and their leaders. I am also available for speaking,
