Item description for Strategy 2000: Churches Making Disciples for the Next Millennium by Aubrey Malphurs...
Overview Current research indicates that less than three percent of today's pastors and churches have developed any specific ministry plan to lead people from decison-making for Christ into disciple-making growth. While we have many individual churches that have been successful, their programs and methodologies are not always transferable. The real need of the majority of evangelical churches in America today is for a strategy that can be adapted and shaped to the needs of each local congregation. As a church planter, pastor, and seminary professor, Aubrey Malphurs has studied the programs and processes that successful disciple-making churches use. Utilizing their best strengths and insights, he demonstrates how to develop a strategy for the changing needs of the church in the twenty-first century. "Strategy 2000" provides a step-by-step guide for developing a strategy in the local church and parachurch organization along with sample strategies from individual churches, parachurch ministries, and denominations.

Best for Pastors of Smaller Churches Feb 18, 2005
A fascinating thing about Malphurs' books on church strategic planning is that each one comes at the subject from a different perspective. In this title, the author describes the pastor of smaller, struggling congregation that needs to establish a godly direction for its future. Pastors of single-staff churches have challenges of a completely different nature than pastors of multi-staff churches. Malphurs here makes sure that strategic planning principles are seen as helpful to smaller church bodies as well as the larger ones.
