Item description for Empowering Congregations: Successful Strategies for 21st Century Leadership by Marta Alto & Denton L. Roberts...
Why some religious congregations flourish while others struggle along is a question addressed in this remarkable book. Congregations are communities of the devout who seek to discern and do the will of the divine. To accomplish this, individual members must develop empowering relationships with both the Creator and the created.
Roberts and Hill use their 70 years of collective experience as successful clergy in many congregational settings to describe what empowers congregations and their members. Congregations around the country are eager to find practical ideas that will fit their situations and this insightful volume has just that--suggestions and strategies proven to work effectively in congregations around the entire theological spectrum.
"The Empowering Cycle" weaves together principles gained from human development theory, quality management practice and the recovery movement and produces warm and empowering guidance to help congregations and clergy be encouraged and, ultimately, to grow in vitality, effectiveness and enjoyment.
