Book Review: Stepping Up by Johnny McGowan

I got this copy free from the publisher for reviews but I requested it because I was really intrigued by the topic. Johnny McGowan is a pastor at Lakewood Church, on staff with Joel Olsteen and he has written a wonderful book here. The basic premise here is rather than ambitiously chasing after advancement and the world’s glory, we should step up in the positions where we find ourselves and work as if we are working for the Lord, trusting the Lord to advance us. It’s about being a humble servant and glorifying God, “blooming where we’re planted.”

McGowan is a fine example of this, having started out as a volunteer in the audio visual department at Lakewood and in the course of Stepping Up has grown into a pastoral position and basically the “right-hand man to pastor Olsteen. So many of us would be so much happier if we could embrace the teachings of this book. I highly recommend it.
