Reviews - What do customers think about Hitting a Moving Target: Preaching to the Changing Needs of Your Church?

Hitting a Felt Need Through Research  Dec 1, 2000
In "Hitting a Moving Target : Preaching to the Changing Needs of Your Church" Richard Ezell seeks to help pastors and other Christian public speakers better relate to their congregations. Ezell uses the analogy of an arrow hitting a target to illustrate what Christian public speakers need to do to communicate effectively. Ezell urges that pastors research the area they live in according to factors such as geography, socio-economic status, age, etc. in order to understand their community. Then, the pastor is to find the same information for his particular church through the use of surveys. The pastor is to compare the two groups and structure his sermons to meet the "felt needs" of his parishoners. Ezell rehashes many of the popular church growth writings that are in print. However, Ezell does offer something that not many others do-- he understands people that are in transitional jobs that keep them from developing roots in churches because they move often. Unless this is the case for your congregation, I would not reccomend this book. If this describes your congregation, the book is probably worth the money.
