The Spiritual Danger of Doing Good
Too often, we hear of good people doing good work who make very bad decisions. From making ministry your mistress to Christian karma, this talk explores the hidden attitudes that can derail Christian leaders. In an honest and personal style, Peter explores the ways to serve faithfully—and how the greatest danger we face isn’t an external factor, but the internal attitude that matters most.
Without careful attention, faith-based organizations will inevitably drift from their founding purpose. It’s that simple. Slowly, silently, and with little fanfare, organizations routinely drift from their mission. Peter shares how to keep the organizations, schools, churches, and ministries you love to stay on track.
Rooting for Rivals
Faith-based organizations are sometimes known for what we're against--and all too often that includes being against each other. But amid growing distrust of institutions, nonprofits have a unique opportunity to link arms across our organizational boundaries and pursue a calling higher than our own agendas. Rooting for Rivals reveals how your organization can multiply its impact by cooperating, rather than competing. Peter explores case studies illustrating the power of collaborative partnership and shares failures and successes in pursuing the power of openhanded leadership.
Created to Flourish
Christians are called by God to help those in poverty, and many are eager to answer that call. But how? This talk equips Christians with both a solid biblical and economic understanding of how best to care for the poor and foster sustainable economic development and human flourishing.
The Poor will be Glad is a light to the path of social entrepreneurs, students & philanthropists showing how to help the poor physically while proclaiming the good news of Jesus. You'll learn how to avoid unintentional harm & how to do the greatest good.
