Item description for The Five Star Church: Serving God and His People with Excellence by Alan Nelson & Stan Toler...
Overview How does a restaurant or hotel earn a five-star rating? Is it the people? The location? The service? The amenities? In most cases, it is all of this and more: an overall sense that the customer is to be valued, honored and treated well. Jesus' life was like that: a sacrificial offering of love for those He loved and cared about. In The Five-Star Church, pastors/authors Stan Toler and Alan Nelson provide innovative ideas on how to transform your church based on Jesus' model of servant hood. With humor and fresh insight, they provide tangible steps on how to build a church whose number one goal is to serve God and others-the marks of a five-star church.

AME CHURCH, BUY THIS BOOK! Dec 28, 2009
My Pastor advised our congregation, of an AME Church to all purchase and read this book, it was great advice! He was newly assigned to our church and came with lots of changes that needless to say was met with lots of opposition and drama. This book put into perspective what he is trying to do with bringing our church out of traditions that no longer work, with respect to focusing on our main objective...WINNING AS MANY SOULS TO CHRIST AS WE CAN, and meeting our spiritual needs...AMEN!! This book is not just for making your church a five star experience, but you can also apply it's principles to your workplace, developing your own business, even changes within yourself. This book is a must buy if your church is starting lose members or if your church just isn't growing.
The Five Star Church Nov 11, 2009
The book was delivered before the scheduled due date. The quality was superb. It was a new book minus the name written on the first page. I would definitely purchase for this person again. I am very pleased with this site.
Minster Friends Aug 4, 2009
I actually bought two copies for my pastor and another friend. I first read some of the book at my hair dresser and found it very informative and decided to order copies for my friends.

Five Stars for Five Star Church! Dec 6, 2007
I read this book a few years ago and it has changed my life. I use this as the cornerstone of my non-profit work. I have used the concepts and outlines to help other churches. Dr. Toler wishes to bring all churches to their full potential. Buy this for your pastor, your church board, for business people you care about. Five Star Church is a movement for quality and excellence!
