Untapped Church
Sooner or later most leaders come to the realization that there is more work to do than staff to accomplish it.

It is a universal problem. But what if the answer is right in front of you?
What if the greatest resource in every church is its people?


A characteristic of Christendom was to view pastors and church leaders as professionals who were paid to do ministry and facilitate mission. As Christendom fades, churches are reawakening to the biblical concept of the priesthood of all believers—where ordinary everyday church members have the privilege, honor, and most importantly the call to participate in the ministry and mission of the church. I pray that Derek’s book, Untapped Church, will be a fresh vision for how non-paid church staff can play vital roles in the ministry and mission of local churches.

I’m not sure there’s a more important leadership understanding than how to invest in and serve volunteers. Pastors and leaders [who] ignore the most important resource they have will never move the ministry as far as they could. My friend, Derek Sanford, is one of the best equippers of volunteers I’ve ever seen. So listen up to an amazing leader as he equips YOU with skills to do the same in his new book Untapped Church!

Derek Sanford is on to something big and he tells you about it in his new book, Untapped Church. It’s a game changer! You understand the importance of raising up volunteer leaders, but Derek will inspire you and show you how to reach the potential of high-capacity volunteer leaders that function as staff members. Through story and practical principles this may be the breakthrough book for you and your church!
