Overview Innovative Changes for Church Leadership
Healthy growth in the church comes not from addition, but multiplication! Take a peek inside the leading churches that are launching ministries that go not outside of the box but beyond the box to fulfill the Great Commission. Authors Bill Easum and Dave Travis introduce you to leaders who have taken the bold steps to focus their mission driven churches in ways forgotten by modern Christianity. This book focuses on leadership issues and ministry outreach to the world that redesign the mission of the church by: * Moving from core group to whole congregation discipleship * Thinking beyond one church to the "church in a city" * Expanding the area of influence by going multi-site * Progressing beyond addition oriented church planting by developing multiplication movements
In theses pages you'll find: * Ways to shift your leadership from one person to team driven * Methods to equip your entire congregation for leadership * Visionary paths toward a multi-site church that supports the kingdom globally * Practical ways to move beyond church planting toward a multiplication method of growing
Beyond the Box challenges you to grow your church radically by moving beyond traditional roles and missions. It's time to stop thinking "outside of the box" and instead act as though the box never actually existed!

Don't Miss Out! Feb 24, 2007
Simply Strategic Stuff is by far one of the BEST books in church administration. Tim and Tony are the leaders in providing nuggets of Truth (with a capital "T"!) for church leaders to effectively run a church. How do I know? I am the lead pastor of The Pointe, a United Methodist Congregation, located in Albany, Georgia. Our church began weekly services in March 2006 and has grown in 11 months to an average of over 620 in weekly attendance. Managing a church that has grown so quickly has been a HUGE challenge, but utilizing the principles taught in this book have made all the difference. In fact, our staff is required to read 10 chapters (they are one to two pages each) each week and share how they will use one principle taught in this book in their area of ministry. A must read for every lead pastor and leadership team member. Don't miss out on an AWESOME book!
Great for Business Leaders, too May 26, 2006
I've read hundreds of management books for my business consulting practice, but few have had the practical approach as this little book. The ideas are focused on churches, of course, but many of them apply to any organization. And not only are the ideas useful, the book is just plain fun to read. I kept telling my wife, "Here, you have to listen to this one!"

Very practical and helpful, I will pull it off my shelf often to review and glean insight. It is full of practical wisdom from practitioners who understand effective ministry. Highly recommended.

Great book! This is one of the most helpful books I have ever read on church administration.
More Admistrative than Strategic, but Still Very Good Jul 23, 2005
When I hear the word "strategic" I think more of planning for future ministry. This book focuses on the administration of present ministry. The title issue aside, the content of this book is extremely helpful and practical for both lay and clergy leaders in the church. It can be read through from cover to cover, but its best use would be as a reference to consult in specific situations. The theology here is conservative, while the methodology is very progressive. I'm pleasantly surprised with this little volume!
