Growing churches require growing leaders. There must be a balance of input and output in our lives in order to stay fresh. The problem is, most church leaders give out more than they take in. This can make you stagnant. Leaders are readers. Every leader is a reader. Not all readers are leaders but all leaders are readers. A lot of people read but theyre not leaders. If youre going to lead, youve got to be thinking further in advance than the people that youre leading.
Pastor Rick offers four reasons for reading, talks about several ways to get more out of your reading, and provides a list of important books every leader should read.
