Leading Without Power: 9 Paths Toward Non-Coercive Ministry Leadership Paperback – April 4, 2017
Every once in a while Christian leaders need a voice like Marko s to jolt them back to the reality that how they lead should be a reflection of what they believe about Jesus. It's ironic. Since Jesus was all-powerful, he could have easily leveraged his power to influence a generation. But he didn't. Instead he chose to lead from a perspective of love and empathy. Leading Without Power challenges every leader to turn up the humility and turn down the ego if they hope to have lasting influence with this generation. --Reggie Joiner, Founder and CEO of Orange
There's a time and a place in every person's life and ministry when they will choose how they will lead. It's my hope and prayer that more pastors and ministry leaders would see the power that is theirs to hurt or to heal. Marko has written a book that describes much of what we long to see and gives us a place to begin as we make these subtle yet empowering shifts together. This one is a must read. --Brooklyn Lindsey, Justice Advocate, Nazarene Youth International
I have had the privilege of watching first-hand the profound impact Marko has in the groups he works with. With no positional power, his leadership invites transformation, freedom, and empowerment of those he serves. In Leading Without Power, we get a peek into the process that has made such a difference in the lives of so many in ministry. Marko s cohort work through The Youth Cartel has been an ideal laboratory for Leading Without Power, making this one of the most real leadership books you will ever read. --Mark DeVries | @markdevriesyma Founder of Ministry Architects and Permissionary at Ministry Incubators
