Is It Time for a New Approach to Leadership?
To whatever extent the leadership forms taught by the west, and our approach to church polity have done a disservice to the church in China, we should ask for forgiveness.
Global Perspectives on the Biblical Call to a Generous Life
The purpose of Christ-Centered Generosity is to be a primary resource for the global movement of biblical generosity. The book provides a theologically sound, biblically-based resource for Christian leaders, pastors, and the body of Christ on the theme of our call to be faithful stewards who live lives of generosity and joy.
The Steward Leader
Transforming People, Organizations and Communities
This is not a “how-to” book on leadership. It is a “who” book. Its thesis is based on the premise that without a clear understanding and commitment to the “who” of leadership, talking about the “how” will be unfulfilling, impossible to sustain and ultimately will do a disservice to the Christian leader.
The Life That Is Truly Life
What is the difference between true life and counterfeit life? Ownership versus stewardship, the source of happiness as well as our security along with where we look for the provision of our needs are all elements that play a part in having true life. Moving from a counterfeit life into true life does not happen overnight but is a day-by-day journey as we trust in God.

Generosity is an unequivocal characteristic of the life of a follower of Jesus Christ. It is the joyful life that flows freely and richly from a heart that has been set free by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the way Christians bear the image of the God who "so loved the world that He gave "
Reflections on China 2014: Two Ships – Different Directions
This is my third blog reflecting back on six days I spent in China recently with Brent Fulton where we met with pastors, seminary leaders and academics in Shanghai and Beijing. I shared in the first blog about my amazement at the growth of the church and the window that seems to be opening for the gospel, and in my second I raised concerns about the environmental disaster that is overtaking China and the key role of the church in calling people to care for God's creation.

Reflections on China, 2014
I am back from six days in China where I traveled with Brent Fulton and met with pastors, seminary leaders and academics in Shanghai and Beijing. I preached twice at Beijing International Christian Fellowship and we also held our ChinaSource Board meeting in Beijing. It was a busy and fulfilling week. I have been asked to share a few highlights and reflections of my time.
