Externally focused resources:

Go to and drink in Eric Swanson. Buy his book (mentioned below) The Externally Focused Church is the blog I made to capture the proceedings of one of Eric’s pastor networks.

Little Rock Bible Church has been great in this regard and the book The Church of Irresistible Influence captures their work.

Ministries of Mercy by Tim Keller
