Igniting a Culture of Evangelism

I am still blown away by all the great feedback you have been sending about my latest book, Ignite: How to Spark Immediate Growth in Your Church.

It’s so rewarding to see how God is already using it to encourage church leaders to stoke the fire of evangelism in their churches.

I got permission to share one of the emails I received recently from Pastor Mat Weeks in Arizona:


Ignite Book CoverI started Ignite today.  Honestly, I was not looking forward to it.  I thought it would be another book on doing a ‘big day’ and I didn’t want to read a book on doing a ‘big day’.

I’m not against or theologically misaligned with ‘big days’—just stink at doing them and they’re a lot of work.  Forgive me, after all, what I was thinking, of course the “Systems Guy” is gonna deliver more than ‘how to do a big day’ in a book on evangelism!

I was very encouraged to read that Ignite will show me how to “create a consistent culture of evangelism” in my church.

In fact, I have been praying for God to lead and assist us in that very endeavor, so the book must be part of His Divine response—and I’m confident it will deliver!

Have a great weekend bro,
