I would love for you to help me celebrate in a BIG way.
No, I’m not asking for presents for myself, but rather for some help for others — specifically ministry leaders.
In my work with ministry leaders across the globe I encounter more and more leaders who are desperately in need of training. They are in need of resources and coaching. This is one of the reasons I founded my Online Youth Worker Coaching Network for leaders who have been in the field for 5 years or less.
So here’s the deal… I’ve seen some great interests in my book, Going Social, from leaders across the globe but my desire is to get this in the hands of church leaders who desperately need help connecting with those outside the walls of their church. Additionally, there is a need for curriculum and training resources too!
I’ve been working with a couple of pastors in strategic networks to help these leaders in need and I would love for you to be a part of it. Would you help me help them? In honor of my birthday would you consider giving a monetary gift towards this great project?
If you want to help these leaders and also bring a big smile to my heart, please make your donation in the sidebar here on my site. Every dime will go towards this cause and will help make a difference! And, as a token of my appreciation for your contribution of $25 or more I will send you a gift and a personal thank you.
*A tax-deductible receipt is also available upon request.
A few weeks back I was interviewed by my friend, Tim Schmoyer, in Louisville, KY. Tim wanted to know more about my book and decided to have some fun and giveaway 2 FREE copies of the book on his blog. Check out this quick video and then [click here] to enter the contest on his site. Thanks for your support of Going Social!

I got a call this morning from my friends @LifeWay asking me to share an urgent Prayer request with my network. Notable author and Christian Leader, Henry Blackaby, has been missing since Thursday at 4:00PM where he was last seen in the Atlanta area. Blackaby is a Diabetic and according to his family is most likely without his medication. Please pray for his family and friends also during this difficult time.
His son, Richard, confirmed the news of the missing report this morning on Twitter:
Please feel free to share this on #SocialMedia and let’s join together in prayer for this. Thank you for your support.
Update: Blackaby’s credit card recently used in Perry GA. Anyone in area please watch for his vehicle (black Lincoln). 6.21PM, Friday, September 20, 2013
Update: He has been found! Doctors are checking him to see if he is OK, but he is safe. THANK YOU for your prayers! 8.46PM, Friday, September 20, 2013
