 Leadership Learnings from Bloggers
grew out of a desire to provide insights tochurch planters from more experienced leaders. As we compiled the resource it became clearthat the collective insights were applicable to any leader and not just church planters. So thework was split into two projects. This first resource is leadership learnings applicable to anyleader. A supplemental resource is also being compiled with unique content for church planters.Although the resource was compiled for use directly by church leaders, the learnings areapplicable to nearly any leader because many are rooted in principles and practical experience onthe front lines of service. This resource covers leadership topics from staffing to vision casting.We encourage you not to read this as a “how to” manual. Be cautious and slow to directlyimplement any of the learnings. Ponder the principles behind the learnings and adapt them toyour unique context. Just as the Exponential Network makes no claim to agree with all thelearnings, you may disagree with some. Be discerning.We wrestled with whether to organize the resource by author or by subject. In the end, many of the posts cover multiple topics so we opted to organize the resource by author.In selecting blog authors for inclusion, we surveyed a number of blog readers and simply askedfor a list of their favorite bloggers. Additionally, the team at Passion for Planting follows a largenumber of bloggers for inclusion in NewChurches.com’s aggregator. The authors we asked toparticipate represent those who were most frequently cited on “my top 10 list.” With one or twoexceptions, every leader who was asked to participate in this free resource enthusiastically did.So how did we choose the number of posts for each blogger? Not scientifically. In a few cases,bloggers asked that we limit the number of posts. For most bloggers, we simply looked at eachpost through the lens of leadership learnings applicable to new church leaders. In most all cases,the learnings are universally applicable to leaders independent of context.The Exponential Network (aggregator of this free resource) exists to attract, inspire and equipKingdom-minded leaders to engage in a movement of high-impact, reproducing churches. Weprovide a national voice for this movement through the Exponential Conference, the ExponentialChannel, the Exponential Church feature article in Outreach Magazine, the Exponential Book Series, and a growing number of alliance members (leading church planting groups choosing toaffiliate with one another via Exponential Network).For more information on the Exponential Network and it’s alliance members, go towww.exponentialnetwork.comor emailinfo@exponentialnetwork.com, or call 800.319.5361  ii
