Influence: Building a Platform that Elevates Jesus (Not Me)
Build a Platform that Elevates Jesus by using your Influence well.
If you struggle with tension around the idea of building a platform as a Christian communicator, this book is for you.
Kate Motaung (facilitator of Five Minute Fridays) and Shannon Popkin (author of Control Girl) share valuable insights on building platform in way that honors God.
“Your platform isn’t big enough.”
If you’re a writer, speaker, or ministry leader, perhaps these five words have squelched your desire to share the message burning within. In today’s digital world, speakers and writers are expected to grow their own following—or platform of influence—before gaining access to a microphone or book contract. But as a Christian, is there a way to gather followers and still follow Jesus? Is it possible to both build up your stats and take up your cross? How can you reconcile promoting yourself when you’re called to humble yourself, or elevating your name when you’re commissioned to elevate Christ’s?
Authors Kate Motaung and Shannon Popkin know what it’s like to wrestle with these questions. In Influence: Building a Platform that Elevates Jesus (Not Me), you’re invited to a platform-building coaching session with the carpenter from Nazareth. Join Shannon and Kate in this challenge to acknowledge the tension, set aside fears, examine hidden motives, and embrace the high calling of serving Christ. By utilizing the practical tools, exercises, and discussion questions provided, you’ll emerge with new confidence, awareness, and decision-making clarity–ready to step out and shine the light of Jesus from the platform God has strategically placed beneath your feet.
