Congregations In Search of Their Potential Jan 6, 2007
Do you think your congregation is really living up to the potential God wishes it to have? If not, this book is for you! Bullard uses insights from his 30+ years of experience in helping congregations seek and reach their potential to show a needed conterpoint to the various movements sweeping the church. This isn't health or growth. This is seeking potential. Many different types of congregations exist today. We don't need to stereotype them, but to show functional models. Bullard does this well. He also includes coaching insights and congregational, and personal reflection questions in each chapter. Some of his most useful materials come in his life cycle of the church and in his materials on the ministry types emphasized during some recent time periods in history. Pursuing the Kingdom Potential of Your Congregation should be read by all congregations entering vacancy or interim periods. It should also be read by any congregation, pastor, or layperson contemplating making the church a better witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Must read for congregational change agents May 12, 2006
I read George's book and must say that if you are working to move a church or congregation towards change, this book needs to be on your shelf. The examples are rich, the theory is deep, and the total content is beyond anything you've seen before. More than a repackaging of the same old "church growth" ideas, this book encourages church and congregational leaders to think beyond the same ole same old. I highly reccomend this book.
