New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel is the founding and senior pastor of Life.Church, an innovative multi-site church known around the world and recognized as a Glassdoor #1 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 attenders in multiple states across the country and globally at Life.Church Online.


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 presents Groeschel’s transformative insights on how to effectively build a thriving, enduring ministry and organization.
