Collaborate: Family + Church

I had the unique opportunity late last year to contribute to a special project that combines the best of Family Ministry pioneers with little ol’ me.   It’s bizarre to see my name mixed in with the other pros on this book.   People like this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and even this guy!

Collaborate: Family + Church

Ministers Label publishes one book per year that has significant impact on ministry organizational leadership. Collaborate: Family + Church by Michael Chanley is the 2010 release.   However, Michael Chanley in his infinite collaborative genius, has done something unique this time around.   Michael grabbed a group of 33 quite different authors to be a part of it all.   And, that’s the kicker.   It’s quite an eclectic group of 33.   There are youth pastors, senior pastors, children’s pastors, and those that do a little bit of both.   We all contribute one chapter on different ways to engage the families in your church. I’m so looking forward to reading what everyone has added to this cool project!

Stay tuned for more details soon…

Become a fan of the Collaborate page on Facebook.

It will be available from Amazon for pre-release on March 8th, and will officially release on Monday, April 26th (the first day of the Orange conference).


I want to bring attention to the first comment.   If you’d like a free copy, and are willing to do a chapter review then contact Henry at www.elementalcm.com sign up to be a part of the Collaborate + Blog Tour.
