Item description for Authentic Congregations by William H. Jr. Hopper...
Overview William Hopper believes it is time for a renewed emphasis on congregations in the life of the Presbyterian Church, and so in this book he challenges Presbyterians to revitalize congregational leadership, organization, and mission for greater service in a changing world. Using case studies of "authentic congregations"--diverse Presbyterian congregations that are responding creatively and effectively in their social contexts--Hopper draws insights for all congregations desiring more vital worship, service, and witness. He explores some of the controversial issues facing the church today, and offers wisdom for congregations about how to engage these issues and to develop faithful ministries in challenging times. This is an important book for all pastors, church officers, and other leaders who wish to help revitalize their congregations.
