Try dynamic orthodoxy instead Oct 31, 2007
If horizontally-focused statements like the following appeal to you ...
"The Bible is important and needs to be engaged at every possible level, but there needs to be more living in community and struggling with community."
... then this is your kind of book. If not, you're likely to perceive it as chock-full of jargon and therapy-speak.
The time-tested method for building a successful parish is what some have called "dynamic orthodoxy": (1) faithfulness to authentic Christian doctrine, (2) reverent liturgical practices, and (3) enthusiasm for Christ and His Church. So save your money; dynamic orthodoxy is an approach available to everyone -- free.
Best Practices Work even in non-business environments Dec 18, 2004
This book sets a model for all business-minds. Best practices, as a phrase or methodology, this book shows in real sense, works everywhere. Who applies it, how systematically and how professionally is another question.
The editors and contributors of this book deserve a high word of appreciation for such a useful book.
Apart from the title, the book has some good sermons and lessons for all.
I like a particular para, and I quote from this book: "It is not difficult to pick up what communication channel people are on. Visual people look up to see things. Audio people's eyes bounce between their ears. And kinesthetic people look like they have inferiority complexes. They look down a lot and pull up their feelings from a well inside. So if we are not sensitive to these three channels when we prepare and deliver homilies, we are loosing bunches of people. I really believe that Jesus was visual, audio, and kinestheic--he told stories that provoked powerful feelings and emotions and that also contained powerful, challenging ideas. It's selfish for us as preachers to just stay on our own channels. We must strive to minister to all of the channels that are before us." in chapter 'Reality-Based Sermons: A Catholic Perspective' (p. 17)
Lots of great ideas for every ministry! Sep 23, 2004
Are you looking for ways to inspire more parishoners to come to church? Ways to get them deeper into their faith? Ways to bring unchurched people in contact with Jesus? This book has a lot of answers.
The format is a series of brief (10-15 page) essays written by parish leaders of "best practice" Catholic and Protestant churches that cover a wide variety of ministry topics: evangelizing, preaching, fundraising, etc. Each topic contains two or more essays, usually with a different focus.
Since there are so many types of churches and viewpoints represented, you will probably think some ideas sound great and other ideas don't really fit. But it seems as though all these churches struggle with the same basic questions regardless of denomination. It's definitely possible you could pick out just one or two ideas here that could be implemented in your church and really change lives.

Protestant and Catholic Trailblazers
The New Orleans Pastoral Summit united Protestant and Catholic clergy in an unprecedented mutual search for today's best ways to spread the Word. With churches as small as 60 members and as large as 10,000, these clergy shared their hands-on, groundbreaking strategies to revitalize both individuals and communities. Their presentations are collected here, as well as contact information for each presenter.

· create a warm, welcoming church environment. · transform ordinary churchgoers into enthusiastic lay leaders. · successfully get members to tithe their time, talents, and money. · reach youth, the unchurched, and the marginalized. · prevent pastoral and lay leader burnout. · better fill the needs of the community and surrounding neighborhood.
