Looking for your next must-read leadership book? I have you covered.

After building a billion-dollar company together, my friends, Matt Tresidder and Chris Heaslip learned a thing or two about the current pain points leaders today are facing.

And they want to share a secret with you: it all ties back to the employee/manager relationship.

In their upcoming book, Management is Dead, they’re sharing the 5 foundations of leading and developing our teams well in an era where the old form of management just doesn’t work anymore.

There’s a shift happening in ministry and culture right now. I sat down with Brad Hill, Chief Solutions Officer at Gloo, and asked him what he’s seeing and if there’s a solution. Discover the solutions Gloo offers you and your church at gloo.us/reach.

Increase Giving and Fully Fund Your Mission—Regardless of Where You're at Now.

When it comes to money conversations with your church, my guess is that you want the outcome (margin in your budget and a generous congregation) without the process (having to raise funds and talk about it).

The Art of Building a Generous Congregation is a proven method for increasing giving, creating a culture of generosity, and building financial margin at your church... without the stress and awkwardness.

Even if you don’t feel comfortable talking about money right now.
Even if you’ve never seen your congregation fully engage with that kind of conversation.
Even if you’ve tried other methods without success.

And yes, especially, if you could make a bigger difference by increasing your budget by 20%, 30%, or even 40%.
