A great Resource to stay Relevant for Churches and Ministry Leaders Sep 12, 2006
I am so excited and don't know where to start after reading this book. I have bought copies for others on my staff.
This book has relevant topics for any Christian or church looking for ways to reach people. And ways to reach people that are beyond the traditional church Bubble.
There are some great insights for any Christian who wants a system to stay connected to God.
Great for a leader who is looking to start a new church. You will find some good foundations for building a vision and core values for your staff.
If you're a church that's been around there are insightful chapters on redefining and discovering who you are so you can better use what God has given your church (resources, gifts, Staff, etc.) to build on what you have and be open to change in society to continue to reach people. And reach people where they are at.
God desires us to know him and be used to help connect Him with others. In this book there are many great tools and systems to keep the church relevant (yet biblical) with the world we are in.
