Collaboration leverages effectiveness for gospel: video and free ebook

See what can happen when mission agencies collaborate AND use digital effectively, in this video by Create International, producers of films for the Majority World: listing. (Other related groups that may help you: Visual Story Network and Mobile Ministry Forum.)

Of course, collaboration is vital in any area of ministry, in whatever location: “All of us are smarter than one of us.”

The definitive book to read is Well Connected – Releasing Power, Restoring Hope Through Kingdom Partnerships by Phill Butler, available as a free PDF download. He is a member of the visionSynergy team, who are facilitators for collaboration projects. “It’s a must read,” says Bob Buford of Leadership Network.

Video also available in Mandarin.

Free ebook: Why Every Leader Must Blog

Blogger Rodlie Ortiz is offering a free ebook to all those who follow his blog.


In his book Why Every Leader Must Blog: 7 Reasons To Start Now & 11 Tips To Get You Started, his contention is an established one – that what we sit down to consider, think around, and write about, we understand and remember far better. That’s why you used to write essays at school and college, remember? It’s one reason why people keep journals or diaries, or even take notes during sermons.

So he is suggesting that Christian leaders will benefit themselves considerably by writing for others! Sign up to receive his blog updates at ModernEkklesia, and you will be given the download link.

Understanding creatives – and exciting vacancies in UK

Creatives think and function differently to many of us. Understand them. Give them space. They are often the best communicators in your church or team. Or could be if you’d let them. See 18 Things Highly Creative People do Differently.

Len Wilson is a Christian creative and storyteller with many insights. Check his latest blog post Five Places to Spot a Good Idea. You can sign up to receive email updates of his blog posts – I highly recommend them for learning more on creativity and good communication.

Check also the well-reviewed Kindle ebook by Ed Cyzewski: Creating Space: The Case for Everyday Creativity – short, but costs less than a coffee (Amazon gives a ‘look inside’ preview option). Ed’s other books include the currently free-on-Kindle A Path to Publishing: What I Learned by Publishing a Nonfiction Book. Ed blogs at In a Mirror Dimly.

See other recent posts on storytelling and effective communication. And please share in our comments section any helpful resources for creatives that you know.
