Just to give you a feel for what Zero to Sixty is about, my publisher sent me a .pdf of the introduction and the first chapter of the book. So feel free to download it and give it to whomever you want. I'd love to hear some feedback when you read it. The link to download it is here. Enjoy!
Lots of churches are seeking to reach out to as many people are possible and invite them to Easter. What many churches do is buy the names of every person in certain zip codes and "let 'er rip". I don't think this is the best approach. In fact, here's what we have been doing for some time now and would recommend to other church leaders: #1 - Be Specific by Buying lists - You can call companies that have lists for everything you could possibly imagine. This way, you can be specific in the people you want to reach. - In ... Read More
If you live in I'm going to be leading a Zero to Sixty seminar in Atlanta on April 2nd (that's this Thursday!) from 9AM-Noon.

- Great day at Calvary Fellowship! - Good turnout (even though it was a long weekend in our county). - Taught Revelation 3:7-13. The church at Philadelphia. - If you're a Pastor, teach Revelation to your church. It's amazing what God is doing through this series. - Had a couple of good friends at church today. This guy was in town and brought one of his staff members to check out what we do. We went to a great spot for some Cuban food and great conversation. This guy also at church today. It was great to see him. I miss him ... Read More
Just wanted to put on your radar that I am going to have the introduction and chapter one of Zero to Sixty available for free starting Monday (3/30). See you then!
I am really concerned about something I see in the church overall - it's the habit of believing the worst in people. It's where we watch a person or ministry and just wait for them to get out of step so we can pounce on them all in the name of "discernment". There has to be a better way. - If someone teaches something we don't like, then they must be a heretic. - If someone differs from us in an area of theology, they they're probably not really Christians. - If someone tries a new approach, they're probably "straying from the faith". ...

- Crazy week (and it's only Monday)- Sunday was awesome! Taught Revelation 3:1-6.- If there's one church I don't want to be in Revelation 2-3, it's Sardis. The "Weekend at Bernie's" Church! - I went to a Nooma premiere last night. It was great. The new Nooma (Corner), is crazy good! - My friend Kelly hosted the event and he introduced me to Rob Bell. He seemed like a really cool guy from the few minutes I got to talk to him. - Got to see a bunch of people I haven't seen in years. That was great. - I haven't slept ... Read More
