Taylor Field spends his days on New York City streets ministering to broken lives as founder of Graffiti Community Ministries. His new book Upside-Down Leadership: Rethinking Influence and Success
(New Hope Publishing) reminds us that authentic leaders can impact lives from the small, obscure places, not just as pastors of giant churches. This is a powerful little book that can change the way you think about your own ministry, particularly if you serve in one of those small, quiet corners of the kingdom, out of the limelight.
Among the many valuable insights in the book was this quote from Edward Judson, son of Adoniram Judson: "If we succeed without suffering it is because others suffered before us; if we suffer without succeeding, it is that others may succeed after us."
