HOME RUN is the story of Kevin Myers, a Christian leader who found himself hitting walls in his personal and professional life as the high expectations he had for a church plant spiraled into a train wreck for five years. Through a season of brokenness, the discovery of God's pattern for living, and the mentoring of John Maxwell, Kevin turned around his life and leadership. God taught Kevin that he was living his life backwards. He discovered a biblical pattern for living, which transformed his life, leadership, and relationships. Only then did the church start growing.
Now he and John are teaching others what Kevin learned so that readers can also apply the lessons and live life to the fullest as Jesus promised in John 10:10. Using a baseball diamond as an analogy for living by God's pattern, Kevin teaches an idea that's simple enough to communicate to a child, yet has enough depth to carry the truths to adults.
Each base on a baseball diamond represents God's desired pattern for life: Connection with God, Character, Community, and Competence. The breakdown occurs because most people run the bases backwards. In our performance-based culture, they run straight to third base (Competence), focusing on performance to the detriment of relationships, character, and their connection with God.
