Charisma Leader | Serving and empowering church leaders

After almost 25 years of writing, more than 60 books and an astounding 65 million-plus of his books sold, Max Lucado is a household name among Christians in America. He's also one of the country's most beloved preachers and pastors, having served as senior pastor of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio for more than 20 years until changing roles in 2007.

In our latest Ministry Today Podcast, Lucado explains his new title as the church's "minister of writing and preaching" (sweet job, we know) and offers pastors plenty of tips for more effective preaching. We also get the scoop on the master communicator's first-ever ministry trip to Africa and how it changed his life.
