Forward: 7 Distinguishing Marks For Future Leaders
Where are they today? Leaders in the future must rise and lead people forward. They have to lead so high above the fray they will not stoop to littleness in their thinking and conduct. They have to lead so big, they will not settle for just leading a few. They have to lead so deep; they will not be tossed and turned as they ride the tumultuous waters of leadership. Author Ronnie Floyd is calling for a different kind of leader to rise up for the future.
Forward is about seven distinguishing marks for future leaders. Who are these future leaders? Anyone who leads anything in the future.
Forward is a call. Forward is a process. Forward is a direction. Forward is a change.
Our Last Great hope: awakening the great commision
While the earth's time clock ticks away, well-meaning Christians go to church, pay their tithes, and pray for foreign missionaries—going through the motions of Christian life as millions face an eternity without God. If heaven is indeed for real, and only those who have put their faith in Christ will be given entrance, shouldn't we be making the most of every opportunity to share the Gospel, the last great hope for all the world?
The Power of Prayer and Fasting
The hand-in-hand spiritual discipline of prayer and fasting is not a gimmick or a spiritual fad, although its neglect in recent decades makes it a new discovery for many Christians. Instead, as author Ronnie Floyd explains, prayer and fasting is a Scripture-ordained act of obedience—a means of humbling ourselves before God, drawing closer to Him, and making room for Him to speak and act in our lives.

Thoroughly biblical, Finding the Favor of God is filled with biblical and modern illustrations of people who were blessed for certain tasks.
Life on Fire
Ronnie Floyd has seen his church grow tremendously as a result of his biblical teachings on spiritual disciplines such as prayer and fasting.

With chapters such as "He's God, Not Just Your Buddy," "Confess and Be Filled," and "Every Choice is a God Choice," Life on Fire shows believers how living a radically committed, passionate, and purposeful life in Christ is both possible and fulfilling.
How to Pray
