Craig Groeschel’s Secret

I just heard a secret about Craig Groeschel….want to know what it is?

A insider (who will remain unnamed so he doesn’t get in trouble) told me this secret.

I think you can trust the source. I even checked with another person to confirm it. (I hope you don’t think I’m passing along gossip.)


At a recent meeting of all the Campus Pastors from Life Church, Craig gave everyone a copy of my book “Fusion: Turning First-Time Guests into Fully-Engaged Members of Your Church Now you know the big secret!

Actually, that’s not the real secret…..

Here’s the secret:

Craig is willing to learn from everyone!

Yep, I think that’s one of the secrets to his strong leadership and the tremendous blessing that God has given to Life Church. Craig is a life-long learner.

Even though his church is 10 times (or more, by now!) bigger than The Journey, Craig picked-up my book, read it and decided it was something that his pastors could benefit from.

Remember Craig’s secret – You can learn from anyone.

Great leaders learn from everyone! So, who are you learning from?


P.S. I just pre-ordered Craig’s new book entitled “It: How Churches and Leaders Can Get It and Keep It” I recommend you do the same.
