Endorsements

In Consequential Leadership, Mac Pier has done us a great service by bringing forth the stories of great entrepreneurs who have crossed over from politics, business and other fields to form a vanguard that may yet bring us back from what the ever-wise David Brooks calls 'a crisis of legitimacy.' These tales are a call to action for all of us.
-Bob Buford,
author of Halftime

This book is a study of what has already taken place through several consequential leaders, but it is also a challenge to every Christ-follower to continue and multiply that work.
-Kevin Palau, president,
Luis Palau Association

Leadership matters. The leaders in this book have made an extraordinary difference in their churches, communities and cities. I applaud their impact and invite you to read this book and discover your own leadership assignment.
-Rev. Bill Hybels,
Chairman & Founder, Willow Creek Association

Consequential Leadership forces us to look inward to find the strength to lead courageously. It moves us to look outward on the plight of society and act with biblical compassion. And it inspires us to look upward in prayer for God's empowering presence. Mac Pier has done it again!
-David D. Ireland,
author of The Skin You Live In

I sense that we are in urgent times where leaders must steward their God-given passion to impact the world. Mac Pier has articulated examples of stewards impacting their world.
-Raymond H. Harris,
RHA Architects, Dallas

The God-stories contained in these biographical sketches will encourage you to see and embrace the God-story of your life.
-D. G. Elmore,
Chairman, Board of Directors, The Navigators; Chairman, Elmore Companies, Inc.

Great leaders are as interested in significance as they are in success. In Consequential Leadership, Mac Pier profiles fifteen leaders we all want to emulate--great names including W. Wilson Goode Sr., Frances Hesselbein, Luis Palau and Richard Stearns. All are servant leaders whose lives are committed to giving back, locally as well as globally. They are activists, preachers and CEOs. They have created foundations, planted churches, furthered the cause of peace and improved the lives of thousands of people. Read this book--it will inspire you to open your world and become a leader of consequence.
-Ken Blanchard,
coauthor of The One Minute ManagerĀ® and Great Leaders Grow

Mac Pier clearly demonstrates in this book the importance and impact of God-inspired leadership, which is desperately needed in my part of the world--Sweden, Scandinavia and throughout Europe.
-Tomas Brunegard,
CEO, Stampen Group; chairman, Swedish Newspaper Publishers' Association; first vice president, World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers

I appreciate Mac and his diligent quest to understand New York City and help the church there communicate the gospel in a relevant way. He has a long history of promoting widespread prayer for N.Y.C. He is a key influence in advancing the kingdom in cities.
-Steve Douglass,
president, CRU

Consequential Leadership is an important read for leaders who want to make a world-changing difference for God. The leaders in the book and their stories have literally changed the trajectory of communities, cities and nations.
-Dr. Floyd Flake,
senior pastor, The Greater Allen AME Cathedral of New York

Lots of solid, in-depth information and inspiration for readers who want to be leaders or need some sharpening. Recommended.
