I recently had the pleasure of interviewing two amazing authors. They are Gina McClain (GM) and Jessica Bealer (JB). They are the co-authors of Don’t Quit: The Best Things In Ministry Come Over Time (Orange Books).
Gina McClain is a speaker, writer, and Children’s Ministry Director. She dreamed of being a motivational speaker when she was younger and learned through parenting motivation has more to do with actions than with words. Jessica Bealer Jessica Bealer has been a Children’s Ministry Leader for more than 17 years. She is on staff at Elevation Church and has overseen the launch of nearly twenty locations.
These female leaders know a thing or two about tenacity. They know leadership isn’t a short game. Leadership is the long game, even when you feel like quitting. Read more...

His insights into leadership and what you can do without a title are inspiring. I believe you will walk away with a greater insight into leadership and your role in the grand scheme of things.
Ignite Your Leadership Expertise
With so many books available on leadership, what does this one add to the mix?
Most leadership books focus on how a person can be more effective as an individual or leader of a team. Ignite Your Leadership Expertise focuses on how to build an expertise in leadership while at the same time building trust with others so they seek your input. In other words, when the topic of leadership comes up, you have something meaningful to contribute and people keep coming back for more. Read more...
