Top 5 Books I've Read Lately

Right now, I am reading a lot for several reasons.
1. I am working on a Master's in Christian Leadership.
2. My Pastor invests into the life of our leaders and gives us assigned reading.
3. I am a part of the Champions of Honor Men's Bible Study at our church.
4. There were several books I wanted to read that were not assigned elsewhere.

So, here are the top five books that I've read lately (in no particular order)

Maximizing Your Effectiveness by Aubrey Malphurs

This book helps an individual to discover their divine design.  It will be a resource that I go back and use with potential leaders to help them discover how God created them.

The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson

This book is incredible.  Batterson is one of my favorite authors and he knocks it out of the park with this instant classic on prayer.

Influencer by Patterson, Greeny, Maxfield, McMillan and Switzler

This book had incredible stories that illustrated how to be an influencer of a change agent.

Secrets of the Secret Place by Bob Sorge

This book challenged me.  I encourage every believer to use this as a devotional book.

I Blew It by Brian Dollar

This is an incredible book written by my friend of 28 years, Brian Dollar.  I was honored to write an endorsement that appears in the book.  However, that is not why this is a great book.  This is a great book because Brian shares his mistakes and the lessons he learned from them.  If every church leader would read this book and apply the lessons, then they would experience a lot less heart ache.  His stories are hilarious and the book is well written.  You can pick up your copy at

I want to challenge you to never stop learning!  Keep reading!
