Item Description...
From the celebrated pastor of a fast-growing United Methodist megachurch comes a vision for struggling mainline congregations who want to attract---and absorb---the unchurched folks in their communities. Learn to "market" your congregation; mobilize your staff; improve on first impressions like church grounds and nursery facilities; make traditional worship seeker-friendly; raise funds; avoid burnout; and more.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I read this book about three months before I was the pastor of my own church and I continue to read it twice a year. The reviews that state that "This is how Adam did it" are correct to a certain extent - but that shouldn't stop you from gleaning hundreds of ideas from it. Adam may have had a little support, but there isn't really one thing in here that a denominational or non-denominational new church start-up couldn't do. For that matter, there isn't one thing in here an existing church couldn't learn from and do! This book has change my entire ministry. We are reaching a lot of people, and I give God and Adam the credit! This book is a MUST for any pastor or church leader. He engages the reader immediately, gives you practicle ways to reach out to others, and shares insight that is wonderful.

I teach marketing workshops and I hand out a free copy to an attendee every time. This book is that good.

How Adam did it.  Jun 3, 2009
Adam Hamilton is the founding pastor of a large and growing church. This book is a rehearsal of how he did it. Many of his methods will work in other places, but the large support he had as he began the work may not be available to every new plant pastor.
Nuts and Bolts Ideas for Ministry  Jun 11, 2008
A lot of solid ideas for building and growing a church community. I'm not sure about all of them, but there are a number of ideas that would work for me as a pastor.
Leading Beyond  Apr 13, 2008
This is a powerful book that all ministers and lay people should read. If you don't already want to be a pastor you will by the time the book is over. Adam does a great job explaining how he has been successful at COR and helps others see how they might go about developing and improving their churches for the future.
a new standard for the mainline  May 22, 2007
Adam Hamilton refuses to believe that mainline churches are irrelevant. He challenges us to engage our culture with all of our heart, soul and especially our minds.

He says that every church must answer three questions if it wants to reach people for Jesus
1. Why do people need God?
2. Why do people need the church?
3. Why do people need THIS church?

He then goes on to share observations on leadership from his persective as a mainline pastor who started a church with four people meeting in a funeral home and now has 7000 in worship. His observations are helpful for churches of every size. He doesn't tell the reader to replicate Church of the Resurrection's ministry, but to look at what they are doing and see if you get any good ideas.
