I don’t know what to think of this…

Bob FranquizGeneral

I've purchased many things off of ebay in my life. But this hurts. I don't know how to feel about this.  Option A - Happy my book may get into someone's hands.  Option B - Someone had it, read it, and said, "I think I'd rather have $2.50 that keep it" :)I may not sleep tonight...

Stuff I’m Looking Forward to…

Bob FranquizGeneral

- Being in Southern California next week for some time off - Being in Southern California next week and leading 2 seminars (Click here for info)- Sleeping on my new "Sleep my Numbers" bed tonight.  (I've ben waking up with back pain every day for a year.  It was time to finally make the purchase while I can still walk) - Seeing Zero to Sixty completed.  I'm amazed at how it's all coming together.  I'm blown away by my publisher.- Finding out if we're having a boy or a girl. My prayer is for a healthy baby, so I'm fine with either a boy ...

If you’re in Southern California…

I'm going to be leading 2 seminars in Southern California on March 5th (which is about 2 weeks away).  #1 - I'll be leading my all-new Zero to Sixty seminar - this seminar is based on my soon to be released book and discusses all the skills for leadership that we weren't taught in school.  The seminar deals covers communicating vision, hiring and firing, personal development, strategies for leading at a higher level, recruiting volunteers, and tons more.  #2 - I'll be leading a Fusion (Assimilation) seminar in the afternoon.  This is only assimilation seminar being offered on the west ...

- Today was really good! - It was great to have Mark back leading worship.  - I taught Revelation 2:1-7- Lots of people responding to return to their 1st love this morning- Talked to a lot of first and second timers today.  It's amazing to hear about how people hear about Calvary Fellowship- People are coming to know Jesus and growing at the church.  I couldn't be happier.  - I ate pretty bad this week.  Monday I'm getting back on the horse and eating right. - I'm looking forward to leading an assimilation seminar in Jupiter on Wednesday.  I'm looking forward to ...

Don’t make all your own mistakes…

"No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals."  - Brian Tracy

There’s a Reason Editors are Important

I just got done reading the edited version of Zero to Sixty and let me say that it's much better than what I sent :) I'm amazed at what someone with a command of the English language can do.  Me sounds lots intelligent-er...

Keep those you Reach on Easter!

Bob FranquizGeneral

There's going to be a record number of first time guests at your church on Easter, the question is, "Will they stay or fall through the cracks?" If they stay, it's because you were intentional about helping them take next steps in their faith and you were ready for them in the first place.  I'm going to be leading a Fusion (Assimilation) seminar on February 25th in Jupiter, FL (which is in the northern part of West Palm Beach county) and teaching church leaders what we can do to be ready for first time guests and how to follow up with them so they don't get ...

Amish Churches

Bob FranquizGeneral

I've noticed something about churches:  - There are churches that look everywhere for innovative ideas and creative ways of communicating the Gospel.  At the same time, there are churches who believe the don't need to look anywhere outside of what has already been established through tradition.  I call these "Amish Churches".  The are closed societies who create their own bubble and never allow a new idea to creep in and infuse some creativity into their preaching, systems or architecture.How do you become an Amish church?- You don't read anything that wouldn't be found in a Christian bookstore- You don't listen ...
