I’m excited to announce that my new book went live on Amazon today.
This has been a fun project to work on and it was spurred along by the positive feedback I received from you, the faithful readers of this blog.
Right now, Before You Go is only available in the Kindle format from Amazon. I’m going to release it in other formats later this summer.
Don’t have a Kindle reader?
Not a problem. It can be read on any device (Macs, PCs, iPads, iPhones, Android devices and Blackberries) with the Kindle reader app. (Available here)
Who should read Before You Go?
1. All Minister/Pastor types who are thinking about changing churches. While I’ve written from the perspective a Lead Pastor, it will also be a helpful read for ministers filling other staff roles.
2. Members of search teams looking to improve their search process. It will give search teams insights into what candidates may be thinking throughout the process, as well as some deeper questions to explore during the interview.
3. Ministers who have recently moved to a new church. Much of what is in the book applies to the first year of ministry at a new church too.
4. Church leaders: Elders, Deacons, Staff, Ministry Leaders, and Volunteers. Staff transitions are a critical aspect of church life. Every church leader needs to be aware of the behind-the-scenes complexities described in Before You Go.
5. Anyone making a career transition. Many of the principles in the book apply to other professions and organizations. I’d love to hear how how you are able to apply what you read in Before You Go to your particular situation.
6. Anyone who enjoys reading what I write. Some of the content was originally posted here on the blog, but much of it is new. The content originally posted here has been reshaped, revised, and improved. I tell bits and pieces of my ministry story that I haven’t shared anywhere else.
Did you know it’s super easy to buy a Kindle book as a gift for someone else? You buy it and they get an email from Amazon telling them to come download their new book. One person could buy a bundle of them for an entire search team in just a few minutes. Pretty cool.
