Reject Pride of Ownership in Pursuit of a Higher Mission
Christian organizations have come to be known mostly for what we're against. And all too often, that includes being against each other. But amid growing distrust of religious institutions, Christ-centered nonprofits have a unique opportunity to link arms and collectively pursue a calling higher than any one organization's agenda.
Rooting for Rivals reveals how your ministry can multiply its impact by cooperating rather than competing with others, modeling Christlike love and generosity in the process. Peter Greer and Chris Horst explore case studies illustrating the power of collaborative ministry. Writing with vulnerability, they also share their own failures and successes in moving toward a kingdom mindset.
In Rooting for Rivals you'll discover the key to revitalizing your ministry and making an enduring difference in the world.
- A Call to the Greater and more Beautiful Work of Furthering God's Kingdom
The writers of "Rooting for Rivals" have gifted us a gentle reminder to guard our hearts with all diligence. Through honest self-reflection, they invite us to acknowledge our membership in the human race by noting our propensity to drift into a scarcity and clan mindset, as well as the impact of such a drift on our lives and the lives of those we have been called to serve through our organizations. Detailed case studies, representative of the diversity of the nonprofit landscape, are presented as concrete referents of the kingdom principles articulated in this work. Each chapter concludes with concrete next steps to guard our hearts, and by extension the hearts of our institution, so that our role in the greater and more beautiful work of furthering God's kingdom will not be hindered. It calls us to a unity that will declare the goodness of God, in the person of Jesus Christ, to the world.
