About the Author:th

Communicator, author, and pastor ANDY STANLEY founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries in 1995. Today, NPM consists of six churches in the Atlanta area and a network of 30 churches around the globe that collectively serve nearly 70,000 people weekly. A survey of U.S. pastors in Outreach Magazine identified Andy Stanley as one of the top ten most influential living pastors in America.

Andy holds an undergraduate degree in journalism from Georgia State University and a master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the author of more than 20 books, including The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating; Ask It; How to Be Rich; Deep & Wide; Enemies of the Heart; When Work & Family Collide; Visioneering; and Next Generation Leader.

In the digital world, his success reaches well beyond the local Atlanta area. Nearly 1.5 million of Andy’s messages, leadership videos, and podcasts are accessed from North Point’s website monthly.

In 2012, Your Move with Andy Stanley premiered on NBC after Saturday Night Live, giving him an even wider audience with which to share his culturally relevant, practical insights for life and leadership. Currently, over five million episodes are consumed each month through television and podcasts, underscoring Stanley’s impact not only as a communicator but also as an influencer of culture.

Nothing is as personal as his passion for engaging with live audiences, which he has pursued for over two decades at leadership events around the world. In high demand, he speaks to nearly 200,000 people at various annual events before audiences of both church and organizational leaders, including conferences such as Catalyst, Leadercast, Exchange, and the WCA Global Leadership Summit.

“I cannot fill their cups,” he often says of the opportunity to impact leaders in business and in ministry, “but I have a responsibility to empty mine.”

Andy and his wife, Sandra, have three grown children and live near Atlanta.

My Review:

Andy Stanley is a well known author, pastor, and speaker. I absolutely love reading his books and gaining insight on leadership and living a life devoted to Christ. Visioneering is a great book and I absolutely love this revised edition. We all end up somewhere in life, it may be where we planned to be or it may not be where we wanted to be, but we have to know its where God wants us to be. In this groundbreaking book, Andy takes principles from the story of Nehemiah to help us discover the purpose of our lives. Asking three questions: What breaks your heart? What keeps you up at night? and What could be that should be? Andy believes these are the bread crumbs that will lead us to the discovery of personal vision. Using exercises, and ideas, we can catch a glimpse of God’s incredible vision for our lives including our relationships (business and personal) and we can discover the passion to follow through.

I really enjoyed reading Visioneering and know that you will benefit from it also.

I received a copy of this book for free. No review was required. I gave this review on my own free will.
