Overview

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great help to congregations  May 28, 2010
This study is already a real benefit to our congregation. I recommend it for any congregation ready to move FORWARD into a life of fruitfullness, both within and without its borders.
 
a good, solid, read  May 3, 2010
Though not always a fan of those books which begin with five, ten, twelve etc., but particular book is good. It has idead, concepts and ways in which churces can provide radical hospitality, passionate worship, intentional faith developoment, rick-taking mission and services and extravagant generosity. This is no easy task but it is undertaken and done well.

A good read.

J. Robert Ewbank, author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
 
Church revitalization.  Nov 1, 2009
Robert Schnase's book is being used the Virginia Conference United Methodist Church's as a great resource for revitalizing small and large churches. There have been wonderful results by using the five practices and ideas outlined in the book. A great resource for churches.
 
Working on enhancing our church's environment  Jun 26, 2009
Great tool to assist congregation in becoming more hospitable with welcoming new folks to church as well as creative ideas to keep the excitement going.
 
Solid ideas for congregations  Apr 25, 2009
No groundbreaking ideas in the book. It takes existing practices and challenges congregations to take them to the next level. A good read.
