    Discover your strengths and learn how to use your greatest natural talents to get the most out of your life.

    DO YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO USE YOUR STRENGTHS EVERY DAY?

    Chances are, you don't. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths.

    To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001 management book Now, Discover Your Strengths. The book spent more than five years on the bestseller lists and ignited a global conversation, while the assessment helped millions discover their top five talents.

    Now, Gallup unveils the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes and much more. While you can read this book in one sitting, you'll use it as a reference for decades.

    Loaded with hundreds of strategies for applying your strengths, this book will change the way you look at yourself -- and the world around you -- forever.

    The Teaming Church is so good, I had a poster made out of its key ideas and am using that with our team and keeping it in my office. You cannot have a great church without a great team at the core.
    --John Ortberg, Best-selling Author & Pastor

    Create a successful team culture.

    Great teams live and serve in light of the Divine Team--the Trinity, and to be truly effective they need: a deeply challenging goal, a creatively empowering leader, and a willingness to collaborate and honor the Bible.
    Author Robert C. Crosby provides innovative ways in which biblical teams reflect the workings and nature of "the image of God." Revealing what he calls "The Four C's of Great Teams" - The Character, The Carrot, The Coach, and The Context - Crosby shows how successful teams reach their goals more effectively. Conversely, he also addresses the "Four Fatal Teaming Errors" and how to avoid unnecessary, time-consuming missteps.

    This book provides biblical motivations, vivid examples, and practical approaches for creating a teaming culture in any faith community. Crosby, a leader who has built teams as a senior pastor, youth leader, and university administrator, is now training and mentoring a new generation of pastors and leaders.

    "Teamwork is essential for effective ministry. Robert Crosby's book, The Teaming Church, explores the essential elements of a team and gives a biblical perspective on how to surround yourself with the right people."
    --Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv; author of "Soul Detox: Clean Living in a Contaminated World"

    "Relational networking and collaboration is the way forward for Christ's Kingdom in the 21st century! Teamwork has always been God's way as he declared, "Let US make humans in our own image" and demonstrated in Jesus' formation of the ultimate team--His Church. The timing of Bob Crosby's work in this volume could not be better. You will be inspired and motivated to participate in ministry teams who will conquer contemporary challenges for Christ. Together we can win."--Billy Wilson, Executive Director, International Center for Spiritual Renewal

    "'The Teaming Church' captures the most transformative leadership model in history, the ministry of Jesus Christ. Robert Crosby frames the optics of collaboration and kingdom partnerships that vertically honor God while horizontally empowering others.This book affirms strategic and prophetic cooperation for a generation that stands skeptical of individual platforms while embracing the idea of community."
    --Samuel Rodriguez, President, NHCLC, Hispanic Evangelical Association

    A simple tilt can turn something ordinary and commonplace, something well understood and familiar, into a powerful and unalterably different force. Any leader can provide the tools and instruction to enable someone to serve. Classes will be taught and church programs will be staffed, but boredom and burnout are likely and turnover is high. With a few small changes, however, you can be a leader who inspires people to serve boldly and lead others to passionate ministry as well. This subtle shift from being a leader who equips people for ministry tasks to a leader who empowers people to become ministers themselves can have untold impact on the church and the wider community.

    Each chapter looks at a leadership basic from a new angle, offering the tilt needed to lead others into true discipleship.With practical tools and exercises throughout the book, the reader is challenged to examine those things that keep us from releasing control and consequently prevent us from empowering others.

    Readers will rediscover hope and energy for their own ministry as they lead others to active and inspiring ministry as well.

    Can renewal and reform groups rekindle spiritual vitality and fervor in today's religious institutions?

    The call to revive one's faith fills more pages of the Christian and Jewish scriptures than any other theme. Today, reform and renewal organizations and movements play a key role in most denominations, whether conservative, moderate, or liberal.

    In this fascinating book, Richard Cimino provides you with an in-depth look at six vibrant reform and renewal movements that are revitalizing traditional faith communities from the inside out. Cimino walks you through how all the components of renewal and reform--the organization, the larger denomination, the congregation, and the individual members--interact at both local and national levels, and answers the question of how effective these organizations and movements are within their traditions. Filled with interviews and case studies, Trusting the Spiriy concludes by outlining strategies for renewal and reform that can be put into practice in a wide range of religious contexts.

    Amid the torrent of books on leadership that flood the marketplace of contemporary Christianity, UnCorinthian Leadership takes a fresh, challenging, and biblical approach. David Starling examines the teaching and leadership practices of Paul in 1 Corinthians, and finds both a sharp critique of the "Corinthianized" practices that are endemic in much modern Western Christianity and a positive, compelling theological vision for how leadership ought to function among the people of Christ. The account of Christian leadership that emerges is grounded in careful, contextual study of 1 Corinthians, and thoughtfully applied to the circumstances and cultural pressures of our own times. Paying close attention to the situation Paul addresses and the shape of his arguments, Starling highlights the vivid relevance and enduring power of the letter. Students of 1 Corinthians will find an illuminating guide to the contemporary application of the letter; Christian leaders and students of leadership will find a refreshingly biblical account of what makes Christian leadership Christian. "Many speak and write of 'Christian leaders' and 'servant leadership' as if the categories were self-evident--and certainly it is easy to bless almost any label with a few proof-texts. This little book by David Starling is a fresh antidote. By paying close attention to 1 Corinthians, he demonstrates how . . . the Apostle Paul works out a decidedly 'unCorinthian' vision that is in line with the gospel and that has the power to revolutionize our thinking and relationships." --Don Carson, author of The Cross and Christian Ministry "Worldly attitudes and behavior on the part of the Corinthian congregation prompted a body of godly instruction from the Apostle Paul. David Starling mines that apostolic instruction for leadership insights, badly needed in our own Corinthian times. Thoughtful and well written, UnCorinthian Leadership will be a bracing read for Christian leaders everywhere." --Duane Litfin, author of St. Paul's Theology of Proclamation "No book in the New Testament has more to say about Christian leadership than 1 Corinthians. . . . While commentaries on 1 Corinthians abound, none address this question adequately for Christian leaders in our day. And the need is great, with worldly leadership doing considerable harm, both to the church and the progress of the gospel. David Starling's exploration of gospel-shaped leadership is a searching blend of rigorous exegesis and insightful application. I recommend it heartily." --Brian Rosner, co-author of The First Letter to the Corinthians (PNTC) "Here is a very fine exposition of select chapters of 1 Corinthians against its first-century cultural setting, along with many sensitive and searching applications to our own Christian contexts. . . . This little book contains an amazing array of searching, refreshing, and powerful instruction. It is presented in a courteous, sensitive, and self-critical manner as the author applies the word of God to himself and urges other Christians to follow his lead. Highly recommended." --Peter O'Brien, author of Gospel and Mission in the Writings of Paul David I. Starling is Senior Lecturer in New Testament and Theology at Morling College in Sydney, Australia. He is the author of Not My People: Gentiles as Exiles in Pauline Hermeneutics (2011) and the coeditor of Theology and the Future: Evangelical Assertions and Explorations (2014).

    Unconventional leadership in uncommon timesWhat kind of leader would you be if you were suddenly handed more power? What if you got that promotion you wanted or a headhunter called tomorrow offering you your dream job?

What would happen if God suddenly promoted you? A simple way to find out is to evaluate what your leadership looks like right now, and this book gives you the opportunity to do just that. Read about the intriguing similarities between Saul and David and the different choices they made that shaped their leadership. Then compare basic qualities of your leadership to each of theirs. You may be surprised at the qualities God values in a leader!Leadership development is a lifetime process. No matter your age or leadership experience, there is still time to grow into a leader that brings more joy to God's heart. Take the journey. It could have some wonderful rewards.

    As older church leaders, we've been told a million times that the Millennials and Gen Xers who are coming up behind us don't think like we think. We don't get it and it frustrates us. Guess what? We need to get over it and let it go. Because, get this: it's up to us to mentor and empower the generations that follow us into church leadership. Sadly, many of us are doing just the opposite; we're turning them away. So, not only do we need to let go of our ways of doing things, we need to release our young leaders...release them to be the leaders they know they can be. Unleash provides thought-provoking ideas and practical, real-time examples that will help us learn to know, equip, and expectantly release our younger church leaders into the future with trust and confidence.

    I am completely weary of dismissive and demeaning articles and books focused on the weak, lazy, entitled character of Millennials and Gen Z.This book is different -- it's helpful and hopeful. I'm glad to have a book to recommend to people leading younger generations into their full capacities - Mark Oestreicher, Partner, The Youth Cartel

    Marv Nelson knows that unleashing young leaders must come from an accurate awareness of their emotional, mental and spiritual capabilities plus the right amount of equipping, encouragement and trust. This book is a valuable resource. - Michael Frost, author, Surprise the World
