This is the best John C. Maxwell audio I have ever heard. It reveals what young John Maxwell was like as a pastor before he focused his energy on world-wide leadership training. I have repeatedly been blessed by what he shares on this audio and it is very entertaining. What’s the best way to reach people for Christ? Is there a formula or a special plan to impact the world for God? Pastor Maxwell shares five people principles to illustrate what happens when we demonstrate genuine love and affirmation toward others.
