I love Chris’ ability to communicate to the next generation and this book will only help future communicators feel more secure in themselves and God’s calling for their lives. “Up Next” is a gift to anyone who reads it and Chris’ voice is a gift to this generation. I’m proud to say that we’re friends and honored that I get a front row seat to his life because Chris is both now and next!

The lessons in this book are old school truths for a new generation of ministers. It’s a 3-piece suit level manifesto written with love to an era of skinny jean leaders.

If you have a desire to be used by God, then this book is a powerful roadmap for what it means to navigate the call of God and become a change agent. This is a right now message that will inspire and provoke this generation of leaders to step away from the mirror of self-depreciation and instead look out the window at the harvest that awaits. If you desire to lead at any level, this is a must for your personal library.
