On the occasion of the book’s release, Outreach magazine spoke with the author and pastor on a wide range of topics related to his own journey and his vision for the church.
Also in this issue, a dozen leaders discuss their approach to 12 challenges facing the church, Dan Reiland underscores five essentials of leadership development and Ryan Meeks reveals a successful, church-tested path for creating committed volunteers.
