Church Growth Recipe for Disaster  Mar 18, 2006
This poorly written and edited book contains numerous grammatical and typesetting errors, which immediately sets the tone for the quality of any book. In addition, the church growth model, as outlined in the form of one church's story, is far from unique, interesting, or Biblical. Concerns with this method of church organization would include: lack of visible leadership in the church (deacons and elders), adherence to modern seeker-friendly gimmicks to appeal to church goers (for example,the book outlines how this church uses a "Country" theme, has "Country" outreaches such as a Chicken Fried Steak dinner, rodeos, etc.) The financial model is quite good however, since it is based on a percentage program that does not change.

Overall, I'd say that if your church were to follow this model, it would also likely grow quickly, as it presents a comfortable and appealing atmosphere to the masses. This growth however, would come at the risk of becoming lukewarm spiritually. When Biblical principles are ignored in favor of pleasing men and not God, the results are disastrous. I would expect this church will eventually erode from the inside out, because there are no Biblical safeguards in place to protect the flock from the typical dangers that threaten them. If this church model were a form of government, it would be a dictatorship. Would not recommend this book or this method.
