Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

*Lead Like It Matters is a completely revised and updated version of the book previously published as It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get It and Keep It.*

Discover the secret to igniting a life-giving, soul-transforming, people-inspiring movement in your organization, church, or ministry.

New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel is the founding and senior pastor of Life.Church, an innovative multisite church known around the world and an organization that Glassdoor has named a #1 U.S. Best Place to Work. But it didn't happen by accident. In 1996, a handful of congregants worshipped together in a two-car garage. Today, the church welcomes tens of thousands of attendees in multiple states across the country and globally at Life.Church Online.

Lead Like It Matters presents Groeschel's transformative insights on how to effectively build a thriving, enduring ministry and organization. Using his skills as a top leader, he combines straight-talk and wry honesty with biblical and leadership principles to equip you with the tools to:

  • Recognize when your organization or ministry has the indefinable but tangible "it" that leads to success
  • Identify and implement seven leadership principles for a church that lasts
  • Ignite a fire in your team to leave behind "what we've always done" for the meaningful ministry you know is possible
  • Discover the three areas every leader must master for success

Lead Like It Matters reveals the secret for building ministry momentum and then keeping it going.

Discussion questions and accompanying visuals are included in the audiobook companion PDF download. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great Book For Pastors!

This book is fantastic for pastors who are looking to find “it.” The thing that helps them to grow not just their church but their relationship with Christ.

So good! Very relatable

Always enjoyed hearing Craig’s messages. This the second audiobook I’ve heard and enjoyed so much. I like how there’s a pdf attached to dive deeper into what the message is. Give this audiobook a listen. It’s very inspirational!

Life-changing Book!

Wonderful book. It was awesome to take the journey with Pastor Craig. God sent this to me because I so need it. I had it, but I lost it. But with God's help, I'm getting it back!
