Item Description...
Some of the biggest challenges that pastors and church leaders face are rooted in a non-biblical church structure. These challenges lead to low morale and discouragement and they can drain enthusiasm and kill vision faster than almost anything else. This book shows you what to do about it. It shows you how to build an effective biblical church structure so that the troubling dysfunction seen in so many congregations can be transformed into a healthy environment. Additionally, a model Constitution and Bylaws, scrutinized by an attorney who specializes in church and denominational litigation, is provided for others to inculcate into their respective ministries. Pastors, missionaries, church planters, college and seminary professors, church leaders and church members will be greatly helped by reading and applying this book. The Foreword is written by the President of the largest seminary in the world. This book has also been endorsed in writing by thirteen other key evangelical leaders (professors, missionaries, pastors, editors and institutional presidents and administrators). It can stand the test of scholarly scrutiny but is succinct and promises to fill a huge void for years to come.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well done!  Jun 12, 2008
As a pastor in a church that recently reworked its structure, I like this book because it really makes sense, not to mention it honors God! It is a very thought-provoking needed assessment of executing church affairs in a way that stays true to biblical precepts. The practical application throughout the book is a bonus for every pastor and church leader who desires to see a living example of how this structure actually functions. It's not just a list of ideals, but a real tool that can be modeled now. It's definitely worth your time to read so that you can discover how these principles can fit in your church.
Church Structure  May 19, 2008
I have experienced shameful power struggles in previous churches and then had the privelege of being a member of the first church in which Dr. Blanchard implemented this structure. It was a hugely beneficial move for our church and is still reaping benefits. This book exactly describes how it was implemented - and it works! I appreciate the concise, scholarly presentation, and the fact that it is solidly Scripturally based. By the way, I also enjoyed reading it!
V Suttle  Apr 17, 2008
This is a must read for all Christians who are leaders or serve on ministry teams (committees) in their local church. Dysfunction is the perfect word to describe the state of most of our churches today. Who has not sat in a business meeting that more resembled a debate on the Senate floor than the house of God? Who has not left meeting after meeting feeling like you just wasted precious hours of your life & accomplished nothing? Dr. Blanchard's book is not only well written and easily understood by the lay person but it's challenging & encouraging as well. James 1:22 tells us to not merely listen to the Word but to do what it says. I'd say the same thing about Dr. Blanchard's book - read it and then do it!
Church Structure that Works "works"  Apr 10, 2008
I am currently pastoring the church where Dr. Blanchard first introduced the principles that you will find in "Church Structure That Works." In short, I would say that "yes, it really does work!" I cannot express how grateful I am to Dr. Blanchard's leadership as he paved the way for my own tenure as pastor. I have experienced a biblically solid, comprehensive, and a very natural church polity that has allowed me to truly pastor this church. This book is not just theory, it is born our of "on the field" practice.
Helps the church "dwell in unity"  Apr 8, 2008
In the past we've seen too many examples of how not to structure churches - now we finally have a book that guides us in how to structure a church Biblically. In his book, Dr. Blanchard gives a solid Biblical analysis of church structure, follows with abundant practical advice for pastors and church leaders, and demonstrates that God's people can indeed "dwell in unity." As an attorney, I can appreciate the value of having a carefully constructed constitution and bylaws to protect the church, and I believe that the book's model constitution would be helpful to any church. This book is "must" reading for anyone in church leadership, or who aspires to be.
