The Strategy for Leading the Presence-Driven Church

Lake Michigan, Holland State Park

My new book Leading the Presence-Driven Church is now at the publisher. I'm hoping it will be out in December.

The strategy for leading the Presence-Driven Church has nothing initially to do with strategizing. It's more radical than that. Here is how to lead and grow a Presence-Driven Church.

1. Abide in Christ. Dwell in God's presence. Have a praying life. Connect with God, like a branch attached to a tree. Become familiar with God.

2. Listen for the voice of God. Discern. Discernment is in direct proportion to familiarity.

3. When God calls you to do something, obey. Follow the Shepherd. Here is where strategizing can come in. 

That's it. 

There are no more steps along the way.
