[vimeo id="97653921"] If you’re looking for a great list of books to read this summer, here are a few of my personal suggestions. I’d love to hear what you thought about them after you read them.

Number one – Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek

For all you leadership fans here’s one that you don’t want to pass up. Simon explains in this book the significance behind why some teams trust each other and why others do not. He talks about the qualities of what he calls ‘real leaders’ and why they are able to cultivate health with the people they serve.

Number two – Leading the Congregation by Roger Heuser and Norman Shawchuck

This book is a great resource for all ministry leaders. The authors talk about the various different ways to navigate different types of issues the church. There are many forms of conflict that ministry leaders face that often do not offer black and white answers. This book will help you navigate the grey and unclear areas.

Number three – Fresh Air by Chris Hodges

I just finished reading this book and it is definitely a great resource for ministry leaders and as well as all Christ-followers. Chris talks about the breath of God and how it is the essence of life for us. It will empower you to live in a way that will influence your surroundings the way God would want you to. Chris gives you some “breathing lessons” for refueling your life. I know you’ll like it.

Number four – Leadership Excellence by Pat Williams

This is by far one of my favorite leadership books of all time. In this book, Pat unpacks the insights of what goes into becoming an outstanding leader. He explains the seven sides of excellent leaders as vision, communication, people skills, character, competence, boldness, and a serving heart. This book will definitely equip you to handle the tough challenges that come with leadership.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I’d love to hear if you have any books that you would add to this list – I’m always looking for a few good reads, so I’d love to hear from you. Have a great day!
