The Church is the hope of the world.
When it is healthy and functioning as it should, there is no more powerful organization than the Church to impact the world. By "the Church" we mean the local church and all the agencies and ministries that work together to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ on earth.
Everything rises and falls on leadership.
The health of the church (or any organization) is connected to the quality of its leadership—to the character, integrity, and skill of those who lead it, whether they are pastors, staff, or lay leaders who impact others and influence the health and growth of the church.

“My reading time is an investment and Leaders Book Summaries helps me maximize the investment. Some of the summaries draw me into the book and I end up getting and reading the book, knowing it is a good investment of my time. For others, I get the main ideas, well presented, and decide not to invest further reading time right now. The summaries are a wonder tool for me."
I have been doing this a while, so I've heard various reasons why people assume that our summaries aren't for them.
I have heard this reason more than any other. However, this is very short-sighted reasoning. One thing that I learned many years ago is that I must prioritize what is important and deliberately act upon my choices. I would suggest that growing as a leader is of vital importance for every leader... Not investing in your own growth will come back to bite you.
Here is a video of what Bill Hybels had to say about investing in his own growth at the Global Leadership Summit.
Bill Hybels very clearly takes responsibility for his part in his leadership growth. I love his honesty, dedication, and passion when he says, "I need to read! I have to take responsibility!"
I assume that you identified with his statement, "I have some people I have been given charge to lead well." It is a great responsibility that we bear as leaders— One that requires discipline and endurance.
I also hope that you take the end of that video clip seriously when he very earnestly said, "I’m asking you leaders, take responsibility for your leadership development and read more, and read as a discipline."
Leaders Book Summaries was born from that same passion! I want you to succeed! I want you to have the input and tools that you need to thrive!

Rather than tell you myself why I think a subscription to Leaders Book Summaries will help you, I'd like to tell you what some of the subscribers think. And just to be clear, none of them were paid or got any personal benefit from writing these testimonials. I just sent out a letter asking subscribers to share what value they found in our service.
Here's what they said:
Thank you so very much for these summaries! I have a very busy life, and yet try to keep it in balance. I love to read, learn, grow, and be better equipped for everything in life. These summaries enable me to do so, yet not spend too much time doing it. I am able to read the 'best of the best', in one sitting, and walk away refreshed, inspired, and moving in the right direction!
I read every one. I refer the books to others that I work with on staff and in ministry. These summaries are concise and give all the best parts of the books. I do not have time to read all of the books that I want to, but I do want to keep current on leadership skills, church management, what is going on with people and ministry ideas and best practices.
Dave does a great job of capturing the main points, summarizing them so that they can be used immediately. It has allowed us to get more reading done and move along in our growth.
