Explore practical way to move your church from a pastor-centric model to one that maximizes its volunteers, staff, and everyone in your church.

Alan Nelson is a 20-year pastor/church planting veteran, the author of a dozen books, and now executive editor of Rev. Magazine the only pastoral magazine designed primarily to help pastors equip ministry leaders (www.rev.org).Review:
Alan Nelson is a seasoned pastor who gets pastors and is an excellent coach of pastors. I've been learning from him for over a decade. In a creative and refreshing style, this book calls us back to recapture God's dream for team ministry. --Gene Appel, lead pastor of Willow Creek Community Church
One of the most unfortunate realities of ministry is the well-meaning, but drained leader. Too many leaders think their responsibility is to take everything on themselves. But it is a mentality that has devastating effects both on the leader and the led. In his book, Me to We, Alan Nelson takes a unique look at the dual challenge of leading and equipping others to lead. No matter where you are in the ministry, this book will show you that the key to successful ministry is not necessarily carrying everything on your own shoulders; it is learning to equip others to help. --Ed Young, Pastor, Fellowship Church, and author of The Creative Leader
A refreshing look at leadership that involves letting go of current models and embracing the ancient model of the early church--releasing laity in leveraged ministry ventures. --Bob Buford, Founding Chairman, Leadership Network, and author of Halftime and Finishing Well
