Item description for Becoming a Healthy Church Workbook by Stephen A. Macchia...
This is the tool you need to evaluate and improve the health of your church. Becoming a Healthy Church Workbook, the companion to Macchias book Becoming a Healthy Church, provides summaries of the ten characteristics of a healthy church and looks at seven key questions that need to be answered by every leadership team. Each of the seven questions forms a step in the ministry planning process, which will help you and your church leaders assess the health of your church, realize its potential, and become unified with a plan toward greater health and vitality. All too often assessments ask the right questions but leave you hanging. This outstanding workbook takes you through a well-facilitated strategic planning process that develops healthy, realistic timelines for success. Sue Mallory, executive director, Leadership Training Network This new workbook for Becoming a Healthy Church makes a great resource for churches even better! It can help congregations move from dreams, lethargy, or despair into a dynamic, significant, and Christ-exalting future.
