This little book has a big impact on readers who are grappling with their dreams, desires, and details. Dr. Jackson is a college president, pastor, and parent of 5 children.

God Size Your Church
This how-to for church growth outlines principles of growth for all sizes of congregations, while emphasizing that church growth is not about numbers, but about fulfilling God’s vision for your church’s impact on the world.

Using his own experience as founding pastor of LifePoint Church in Minden, Nevada, pastor John Jackson helps pastors and lay leaders increase the impact of their congregations for their communities and the Kingdom of God. Jackson urges readers to dream God-sized dreams, offering practical advice for building community and transforming leadership.
A Christianity Today survey identified the most common self-described leadership weaknesses to be in strategizing, visioning, and entrepreneurial skills. But there is a tension that exists between dreaming, vision-casting, and being able to actually pull it off. What is from God, what is from our own imaginations, how do we recognize the difference, and then what do we do with it? In Pastorpreneur, pastor and speaker John Jackson equips pastors to employ businesslike strategic planning and innovation skills to enhance their congregational leadership. Jackson’s practical strategies and grand vision will empower you to explore new methods for maximum impact on your church and community and become the church that you and God dreamed of.
