Many churches and leaders today want the popularity of it but fail to understand the principles it takes. Because I have seen it happen in my own ministry, I know that popularity will fade but principles will last, and I'm telling you that if you apply Craig's seven fundamental ingredients, it will take your ministry from good to great. This book is an essential tool for every church leader. Craig is real and authentic and teaches from a place of experience that we all need.

With so much discussion around the it factor, who doesn't want it? Not only does Pastor Craig help identify what it is, he aptly teaches us how to find it.
