Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Pastor and popular church culture blogger Tony Morgan once worked as a city manager, a CEO-type job with the suit and tie, corner office, the works. Despite his top-rank status, Tonyís list of responsibilities still included killing cockroaches whenever a freaked out co-worker spotted one in the building. Thatís where this unconventional, unforgettable book on church leadership begins.

Morganís point is that great leaders donít have to do everything. The key is to play from your strengths while building a team that manages around your weaknesses.

Written in a relaxed style similar to marketing guru Seth Godin, Killing Cockroachesí 142 offbeat, on-target entries will delight and energize church leaders. Chapter titles include ď10 Easy Ways to Make Your Church Services More BoringĒ (creative services), ďAction Speaks Louder than AdvertisingĒ (meeting peopleís physical needs), and ďThe Power of SimpleĒ (eliminating noise).
