I am very pleased to be working with my friend and former pastor Scotty Sanders on promoting the release of his book, “One Focus Living.” This inspirational work that relays the importance of “demonstrational evangelism,” will be hot off the presses tomorrow: July 29, 2011! The official book release party is scheduled for Saturday, August 6 · 2:00pm – 5:00pm at First Baptist Church of West Monroe. So if you’re in the area, it’s free and open to the public! Check out his Facebook event here.
Having recently launched my Christian entertainment marketing company, Premier1 Studios, it’s great to have a high profile client like Scotty offering such a meaningful work. Scotty has been become quite connected through the last several years as a church consultant, traveling around the country and speaking in churches and denominational conventions. I am personally anticipating “One Focus Living” to be a national best seller in the Christian market!
I’ve known Scotty and his wife Cindy, who is a co-author of the book, for years. In fact, I attended First Baptist Church of West Monroe during Scotty’s tenure as Executive Pastor. Scotty has always been a leader, even before his days in ministry when he was a successful businessman running a multi-million dollar business. His days at First West had a very special impact on the church since he was a part of the team that developed the ONE Focus Initiative. This played a major role in transforming the church, and soon the initiative spread to more than 60 other churches across the nation.
If you are new to ONE Focus then let me fill you in…”ONE Focus Living” was inspired by the success of the ONE Focus Initiative. This book encourages readers to “focus” on “ONE” individual for the period of “one” year, to pray for them, and show them the power of God’s love through acts of kindness.
Another really neat thing Scotty is doing is offering a series of free ONE Focus Boot Camps for pastors and ministry leaders, taking place in various locations: Tulsa, Oklahoma; Macon Georgia; Fayetteville, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama; Dallas, Texas; West, Monroe, Louisiana; Alexandria, Louisiana; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and Denver, Colorado. An added bonus is that all advance registrants will receive a free copy of “ONE Focus Living” when they attend! For more information or to register, click here.
Scotty was able to attend the National Religious Broadcasters Convention earlier this year and do some really great networking. I scheduled him for some interviews with national media outlets at the event that will be available soon. We had a great time. Here’s an interview I conducted with Scotty in Nashville:
By the way, “ONE Focus Living” is only the beginning for Scotty Sanders. His next book is already in the works—and its fiction! More on that later but needless to say, you’ll be hearing lots more in the future about Scotty Sanders…a man of integrity, purpose and passion The national spotlight is calling his name!
