Where have all the people gone? Western Christians have watched helplessly while society's leaders have severed sacred from secular, consigning the sacred to the realm of the private and unimportant. Despite dozens of initiative, overall decline continues--in sharp contrast to much of the world, where church membership is rising sharply. Where are the leaders to reverse this trend? Robinson and Smith challenge conventional leadership styles--especially that of the lone leader/chief executive--insisting that we need to move from hierarchies to apostolic networks. However, smaller churches are frequently unable to bring together the key skills and gifts. To nourish leaders who can change the world, the authors recommend the development of "Antioch" churches to resource other local fellowships. An MA program based on this idea is already attracting applicants.
The call of the early church was to go out and share the good news. Unfortunately today's Western churches have lost sight of that mission. In a valiant, if not misguided, attempt to minister to believers, the church has become a mere institution--stunted in its ability to change lives.
This book helps train leaders to develop "Antioch" churches which have the ability and passion to invade the secular space around them--resulting in a powerful, life-changing body of believers. Solid historical analysis underpins the central argumentA fresh vision of how the faith can growEndorsed by Luis Palau and Jim Montgomery of DAWN
