Item Description...
Overview
Sheep Swapping. Shuffling of the Saints. Whatever you call it, many churches are growing only because Christians transfer from one church to another. What's more, many churches aren't growing at all. The problem, according to authors Dann Spader and Gary Mayes, is that too many church calendars are filled with out-dated, mediocre programs that have become more of a burden than a blessing. That, coupled with the fact that these programs minister almost exclusively to Christians, leaves little for the non-Christian 'seeker' to get excited about. Growing a Healthy Church is not a list of trendy new programs for your church agenda. It is a journey of rediscovery. Dann Spader and Gary Mayes look closely at the four stages of spiritual growth in relation to outreach. Using the innovative "M-level" system, these gifted men show how a church can minister to all individuals regardless of their levels of maturity in potential service. This helps eliminate the mistakes of forcing new Christians into service that may overwhelm them or may leave the mature Christian unchallenged. Proven successful through SonLife and churches who have used this system, this resource will help you focus on the simplicity of Christ's ministry, enabling you to build an effective discipline strategy for your church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing  Jan 10, 2008
Simply stated, this book helps congregations focus on the fundamentals of being Christian. Too many congregations loose their identity by majoring on minors. This book helps renew the heart of being church. The pyramid is an especially helpful illustration to help leaders design parishes on purpose. The chapter on evangelism is also worth the cost of the book alone.
