Item description for Survival Skills: Leading Your Church in a Changing World by Stan Toler...
Overview Remember black and white television? The Edsel? Fallout shelters? How about full-service gas stations? Once relevant to everyday life, these are now memories and museum fodder. Our culture continues on fast forward, and ideas and traditions quickly become obsolete. Like the Edsel, many churches come equipped with a rearview mirror as standard equipment. If church leaders aren't careful, they'll spend their time looking at where they've been instead of where they're going. In Survival Skills, Stan Toler and Glen Martin alert pastors to the need of keeping up with the times. Pastors will want to read this book to equip themselves to recognize and evaluate trends and social change so they can anticipate future needs. Survival Skills helps leaders develop the necessary expertise for new millennium ministry.
