Michael Jordan is famous for saying “Success comes from repetition of the drills.” Whether it is basketball or youth ministry, that principle still rings true. Ryan Latham has done a brilliant job in Prepared for Impact as he walks youth leaders through some of the strategic basics of moving a ministry dream toward a ministry reality. He gives seasoned wisdom on everything from effective planning of vision night, retreats, and much more. I commend this book wholeheartedly for youth leaders who want to move from good to great!
