Item description for A Field Guide for the Missional Congregation: Embarking on a Journey of Transformation by Rick Rouse, Craig Van Gelder & Martin E. Marty...

The roster of books on leadership is full of high theory and grand expositions of biblical principles. But there is precious little practical advice for regular people committed to releasing positive change within their local churches. Here one of the church's foremost theoreticians and one of its most accomplished transformational leaders combine strengths to clarify both how sound congregational transformation can be accomplished by regular folks and the very Christcentered foundations upon which transformation must rest. With unflinching honesty and a deep, knowing sense for the joy that comes from Spirit-led change, the authors guide the reader on a quest for a future church alive with the abundant life God intended.

A Field Guide to the Missional Congregation reveals seven "transformational keys," using real-life case studies to illustrate each key. A reflective milestone framework, including discovery questions for each chapter, ground the book in a practical process.

Community Description
Bringing change to churches is a daunting challenge. Two noted church leaders, a pastor and a professor, have collaborated to reveal the seven basic keys to institute change in the life of a congregation. Here is practical advice for everyday church folks who are committed to working out transformation to the way things have been done in their church body.

Rick Rouse is the Senior Pastor of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Phoenix, AZ and Craig van Gelder is Professor of Congregational Mission at Luther Seminary.
