Reviews - What do customers think about Becoming A Contagious Church (Revised)?
Top-notch! Apr 6, 2009
Becoming A Contagious Church is an excellent resource to guide your congregation to becoming the evangelical church that God called it to be. Where other books and guides usually just skim the surface of evangelism, this book delves deeper, providing a 6-step process to light your church on fire for the Lord. I recommend you first get their other book that focuses on individual evangelism, Becoming a Contagious Christian. In fact, you'll eventually need it anyway if you decide to implement the process recommended in this book.
