Have you ever been knocked down? I know what it feels like to be knocked down.

I had the privilege of sitting down recently with one of the leadership greats of this generation, a friend and tremendous leader, Bill Hybels, for an interview. We talked about leadership and longevity – and the ups and downs of life in ministry for over 40 years.

What I’ve come to realize is that longevity in any form doesn’t come without its setbacks. Life itself is full of surprises – some good and some bad – but in order to maintain a steadfast heart and in order to not develop a wounded spirit, we must have an unchanging vision.

Mine has always been about building the church and building peoples lives. What’s yours?

I am so excited about my new book, LIVE LOVE LEAD, and that we are only one month away from its release in North America. This book shares with you some of my own untold story, and is all about helping you to write yours…

Included in this email is a link for you to download a free copy of Chapter 1 – Life in the Faith Lane. I pray you are encouraged and blessed by it and that whether you find yourself in a season of blessing or season of heartache, your decision to pursue God and His calling and vision for your life will lead to incredible fruitfulness and longevity.

I hope that if you are in the USA you will consider joining me and the Hillsong Worship Team for ‘Hillsong Nights’ – nights of worship and teaching in your hometown. Our team has been working hard to make these nights memorable and we are bringing with us the best of the best. Check out the nearest city to you HERE – can’t wait to see you!
