Item Description...
Churches don't sit still; they are either planning for the future or wishing for the past. Yet, even when setting about to discern the future into which the Spirit is leading, how does a congregation map its way? How does it understand its strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and limitations, gifts and graces? In 44 Questions for Congregational Self-Appraisal, Lyle E. Schaller directs the reader to the crucial questions a church must ask itself if it is to understand its mission and the course it must chart in order to achieve that mission. He helps pastors, congregational leaders, and strategic planning groups understand that the questions we ask and the data we gather tend to set our priorities, and for this reason it is crucial to seek the correct information from the outset. Schaller shows church leaders how not to become trapped by "means to an end" questions (real estate, staffing, money, and schedules) and focus instead on questions related to the congregation's distinctive mission (identity, purpose, role, and God's call) and message.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Got Questions?  Sep 8, 2005
Lyle Schaller's "44 Questions for Congregational Self-Appraisal" sounds like a mouthful, but it is a good source for churches that may be re-thinking the ways of doing their ministry. My church is just now merging with another congregation and the two sessions are using this book to inspire thinking about our "new" congregation and church. Clearly, this isn't the only resource out there, but it does present some honest and soul-searching questions that need to be asked when considering a church's future. A good addition to any church library.
Hits The Mark  Jan 30, 2000
Enjoyable and comprehensive, but editorally it's less than perfect - found misspellings and sentences which terminated midstream. Although this may not effect one's perspective, there is the question - Did I miss something important here? Examples: "wotship" for "worship" and "Dying may not be a" isn't completed, which leaves one hanging... Other than the few editorial gliches (publishing flaws), the book is excellent.
