In the many Greenhouse Trainings we've done this fall, several resources have come to the front as good sellers and helpful for many.  We wanted to highlight three for you. 
You can see further descriptions of each resource below, but I wanted to pass on how these have been personally impactful for me.
1) The Blueprint:  Jaeson Ma sprints out of the gate speaking of his personal destiny.  The story grabs your soul and draws you in to what God has him to share.  His passion in and for  prayer is remarkable and needs to mark me in similar ways.  I also live blocks from the largest university campus in the USA, so I am definitely wanting to learn about the campus organic church movement.
2) Organic Church Movements Conference CDs:  Wow there are some amazing presentations here.  Reggie McNeal's main session talk was powerful as he shared his heart with the movement in "last words" ways.  I have Alan Hirsch's Forgotten Ways presentations (1 & 2) in the car and in my cd player at home right now.  Great stuff (especially if the book was too technical or wordy for you to read).  Neil Cole's message on "why didn't I take the blue pill" has become a splinter in my mind.  Check out the titles again and pick a few up...or all of them!  On our shopping page, go to the link for  "Org. Ch. Multi. Movements Conference"  to browse through all the selections. 
3)  Starfish & the Spider:   This book has been a solid seller all fall.  Our movement is about being decentralized and that's exactly what this book studies and presents.  One guy told me that this book was pushing him so hard it "made his head hurt." 
One last thing, at lease four more books that I know of are in the works from people in the movement. That doesn't count Cultivating a Life for God by Neil Cole which is getting brush up and  a reprinting soon.
Press on,
blueprint picIn The Blueprint, Jaeson Ma offers a powerful vision of what God is radically doing in this generation on campuses across the world. Students are already being set on fire for God, planting missional communities, praying fervently and stepping out in faith to see God move in power to reach the lost.
Through his own personal stories, student testimonies and practical biblical teaching, Ma envisions and practically equips student and staff leaders, just like you, to change themselves and their campuses for Christ. The Blueprint will give you a clear vision for revival and reformation of society, specific spiritual DNA and practical tools to see the vision for reformation become a reality.

starfish coverThe Starfish and The Spider explores what happens when "starfish" take on "spiders" (such as the music industry vs. Napster, Kazaa, and the P2P services that followed.) It reveals how established companies and institutions, from IBM to Intuit to the U.S. Government, are also learning how to incorporate starfish principles to achieve success.
Find out: How the Apaches fended off the powerful Spanish army for 200 years. The power of a simple circle. The importance of catalysts who have an uncanny ability to bring people together. How the Internet has become a breeding ground for leaderless organizations. How Alcoholics Anonymous has reached untold millions with only a shared ideology and without a leader. The Starfish and the Spider is the rare book that will change the way you understand the world around you.
