Leadership is one of the most important areas that a Kids Ministry Leader can focus on.  Good teams rise and fall on leadership. I think leaders should always be learning when it comes to leadership and I have put together a list of my top 10 leadership books.

These books have helped shape the Kids Ministry Leader that I am today.

There are many YouTube videos, blog posts, websites, audiobooks and books on leadership.  I challenge you to make a list of 3 books or resources that you can read this year to help you become a better leader.  Hopefully one of the books in my top 10 leadership books list will inspire you to keep learning about leadership.
