Recent surveys show that over 3,500 churches close their doors each year in North America. Nearly 5,000 people leave the ministry on a monthly basis and nearly 90% of pastors involved in full-time ministry consider leaving the church for a different career. These statistics are sobering but if we seek fresh empowerment from the Holy Spirit and discover biblical wisdom, we can strategically navigate these modern complexities. By applying these principles, we can see the statistics reversed and the greatest days of the church once again!
In BUILT: Seven Principles of Leaders Who Beat the Odds, Escape Average, And Make a Lasting Impact, Benny Perez creates a shift in the way you perceive your role in the church and ministry, and provides practical keys to ensure that your ministry will make a lasting impact.
I have watched and been influenced by Benny Perez’s youth ministry in the 90’s, his traveling ministry in the 2000’s and now the church he planted, in 2003, The Church LV, in Las Vegas. What God has BUILT is nothing short of incredible, and I believe this book will help you press through challenging times and build churches, teams and your personal life to last!

With many leaders leaving the ministry and churches closing their doors, this book could not have come at a better time. Benny Perez has lived the message of BUILT in his own life and ministry and shares practical tools for standing the test of time. I thoroughly recommend it.
Russell Evans, Senior Pastor of Planetshakers City Church,
I have known Benny Perez since the early 90’s and witnessed firsthand the impact and integrity of his ministry. I’m glad he has taken the time to write down the biblical principles and wisdom he has learned over years. This book will be a blessing to you and help you run your race well and raise up those coming behind you.
