In Lead Like It Matters, New York Times bestselling author and pastor Craig Groeschel shares the transformative insights he’s learned about how to effectively build a thriving, enduring ministry and organization.

Using the leadership skills he’s mastered as the founder and senior pastor of Life.Church—one of the largest churches in the world and an organization that Glassdoor has named a #1 U.S. Best Place to Work—he combines straight-talk and wry honesty with biblical and leadership principles to equip you 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 is a completely revised and updated version of the book previously published as It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get It and Keep It.

God has given you everything you need to do everything He wants you to do.

One of the best leaders I know in any space. The quality of his work and his team is proof that you should read and implement every word in this book.
