In some churches, burned out pastors and frustrated laypersons have tried to create change but have accomplished little. In other churches, change is thrust upon them and they have little idea how to lead and manage the change in a fruitful way. Meaningful and lasting change in congregations is best achieved when laity and pastors join as partners in the hard work of discerning and addressing the underlying culture that so often inhibits change but is often ignored. This book describes how to empower laity, achieve a Godly purpose & identity throughout the organization, increase the relevancy of the church within the community it serves, and provide healthy responses to barriers and resistance to change. The authors explore each of these processes and provide specific tools for each area to guide congregations to a more vibrant future. This is a book that can change your life and the life of your congregation.
