"Whether you derive your paycheck from a local church or from the profit of a business, one thing is clear: Leaders are in high demand, and leaders with godly character and excellence are an even rarer find."    ---Dutch Sheets and Chris Jackson

Leaders like you are in high demand.

The success of the CEO or senior pastor depends on people just like you.

Churches and businesses are looking for people just like you.

You are a person of integrity. Your life is an example to all around you. Your relationship with God has given you strength, patience, and trustworthiness. You are satisfied where God has placed you and you work with all your heart at the task He has placed in your care.

Second in Command is written to strengthen those in the position of "right-hand man." For some, being "number two" is a training ground for an eventual promotion into top leadership, but for others it is a calling. Whether you pastor a church or are a "marketplace minister," Second in Command teaches you how to become a next-generation leader of excellence.

This book is the best encouragement you can get to give you the confidence and faith to function up to your fullest potential where God has placed you, trusting the future to Him who calls and anoints and sends into new arenas of service.
