Leadership Books

I recently completed reading the following excellent and inspring books. "Leading Beyond The Walls" by Adam Hamilton and "There's Power In The Connection" by Larry M. Goodpaster. Hamilton is senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City; one of the fastest growing churches. It has a membership approaching 13,000. Larry Goodpaster is the current bishop of the Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. The AWF Conference is one of the very few annual conferences that has consistently recorded a positive gain in members despite the declining trend in the denomination. I am currently reading "UnChristian" by Kinnamen.
