Going Deep: Becoming A Person of Influence By Gordon MacDonald

Going Deep asks the question of how can church leaders develop their congregations into disciples of Jesus? And how can those people develop the skills to influence others? It's a fictional account of a pastor in New Hampshire trying to do just that. The challenge for the pastor is to help his congregation become deep people.

How can churches adapt and grow for all the changes that are coming about and stay relevant for the future- Pastor MacDonald and his church go on a quest to find out.

Even thought the book is told from a fictional point of view it still has good pointers for pastors, missionaries, and other leaders. It is a well-told, interesting story, and it contains useful tips for churches today. It gives people tools to help others become influential. Even though it's over 300 pages long it is not a tiring read, in fact it didn't seem that long at all. I recommend this book for anyone who would like to give others the tools to be "fishers of men."
