During the early days of Craig Groeschel's ministry, his congregation met in a borrowed two-car garage, with ratty furnishings and secondhand audiovisual equipment that frequently went haywire during services. But people were still drawn there. Why? They sensed a powerful, life-changing force Groeschel came to call 'it'. A gift from God, 'it' is often bestowed upon those who have seven contributing ingredients. However, warns Groeschel, 'it' can be lost when leaders lack a vision or fail to constantly communicate it, or when they don't focus on a limited set of goals. Employing real-life examples and thought provoking discussion questions, this lively book will challenge church leaders and people in the pews alike to seek out and maintain the spiritual balance that results from experiencing 'it' in their lives.
