Publishers Description Spiritual Entrepreneurialism is a story of how one small church, aging and in decline, experienced renewal and transformation by bridging the power of the Holy Spirit with business development tools from the small business sector. This book briefly explores the entrepreneurial drive of the early pioneers of the American Methodist movement and how recapturing the passion of their entrepreneurial spirit and using proven small business development principles a congregation can be changed for Jesus sake. As the Church continues its march through the twenty-first century it is wise to explore new ways in which we can transition aging and declining small churches into growing centers of vital, life-changing ministry. The approach to small church renewal offered in Spiritual Entrepreneurialism is but one possibility of how small church renewal can take place. Wade Martin is pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church in Emmitsburg, Maryland. As a second career pastor he has served in the U.S. Navy, had leadership roles in small private and public companies, and has served as chair of the board of a nonprofit organization. He received his undergraduate degree from Excelsior College in New York, received his Master of Divinity degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington DC, and will receive his Doctor of Ministry degree in May of 2008 from Wesley Theological Seminary with a concentration in Church Leadership Excellence.
