HCG Recommended Reading

This list of recommended reading is the result of extensive reading by some of our consultants. It is organized by topic. Some of the resources are available through our online store.


HCG is pleased to make available archived articles on subjects varying from church health to team ministry to management principles. Some are written by secular business authors and some are written from a Christian perspective. While HCG may not agree or endorse everything in these articles they are made available for our clients use and development.
