  • Summary:

    This book affirms congregational life as the unique place where persons encounter Christ. It looks at the unique mission of the congregation and outlines a process by which every congregation can move beyond mere maintenance of the current situation and into true mission. The book blends theory, theology, and practical experience in a readable ‘story’ style to affirm congregational life, identify signs of vitality, assist in diagnosing problems, and develop hope and renewal in congregations.
