pub. Serendipity House, (C) 2002

Comments: Jim Wilson is a pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church and writes with a pastor's pen. In this book he covers seven fulcrum points for ministry in a post-seeker age: get creative, get spiritual, get radical, get real, get truthful, get multi, and get connected. Not only is this book full of practical and visionary stuff, but the book has its own interactive website, where readers can share suggestions for implementing the seven fulcrum points. Definitely a must read.

Intention: To equip and inspire churches to use these seven fulcrums to move the world, leveraging culture to the gospel’s advantage.
