Rethinking Influence and Success
by Taylor Field
Everyday people may not see themselves as successful, influential leaders; and there are plenty of stale human expectations to discourage. Yet the lives and words of biblical persons, other historic servant leaders, great missionaries, and contemporary witnesses boost us with fresh perspectives. These lives with unique points of view bind the cynicism that might paralyze us and release hope that fuels our individual ability to have true impact.
Graffiti Church (New York City) pastor and leader Taylor Field creatively challenges us to flip conventional ideas upside down, escape clichés on leadership, and to see real leadership principles revealed as right side up. Everyday readers involved in community service, church, and missions will find current, practical, realistic, and diverse illustrations—simple, short, biblical, and cross-cultural—that help people to transcend barriers and powerfully influence their faith.

About the Author
Taylor Field pastors a church that welcomes about 100 people on Sundays to the same storefront location, after 25 years (see graffitichurch.org). Weekdays, Taylor frequently works with people some might label underachievers. He knows few influencers and has goals other than career advancement, a new church site, his books on the New York Times best-seller list, or a jam-packed speaking schedule. When he speaks, the groups are relatively small. Taylor serves with Graffiti Community Ministries in the Lower East Side in New York City.
