Item description for Turnaround and Beyond: A Hopeful Future for the Small Membership Church by Ron Crandall...

Overview
Since its publication in 1995, Ron Crandall's Turnaround Strategies for the Small Church has become required reading for anyone striving to revitalize the ministry of a small membership congregation. That book was built on extensive interviews and studies conducted in dozens of small membership churches, across several denominations, that had experienced significant turnaround. In a new study Crandall has now returned to those congregations to see what it takes to make the turnaround work over a period of years. Learning much from both the churches who maintained significant growth in numbers and ministry, and those that failed to do so, he offers even more helpful insight to any congregational leader seeking to take a small membership church into a new phase of witness and mission.

Reviews - What do customers think about Turnaround and Beyond: A Hopeful Future for the Small Membership Church?

Excellent Research and Practical Advice  Feb 10, 2009
Ron Crandall hits the mark with this book. In the field of transformational churches, this book makes a valuable contribution. His research is based on his study of over 200 churches, and then revisted them 10 years later to see what kind of lasting changes were made.

His work reflects a breadth of research and insight. While the book is not specific to a particular congregation, it is full of general principles and the study questions leave you to figure out how to apply it in your situation.

I found myself highlighting, scribbling and notating a lot in this text. He gives a few chapters to evangelism, which is my passion and focus, and the role that a pastor has in the personal evangelism of that church. This for me was the key point of the book. The pastor must be active in personal evangelism.
