Your New FREE Reading List: Best Books of 2023 for Church Leaders

Like so many pastors, you probably have a goal to read a lot more books this coming year (well, at least I hope you do because it’s a fact, leaders are readers!).

So I don’t want you to waste another minute searching on Amazon to figure out what to read next…I’ve done the work for you.

In the midst of a challenging year, we saw a LOT of great ministry and leadership books still released. And out of the hundreds of books I read, I’ve narrowed them down into my Top List of the Best Books of 2023 for Church Leaders (with a few Bonus Mentions thrown in).
