Item Description...
Overview
Best-selling author Steve Sjogren untangles the complex jumble commonly known as greatness in today's mega-church, mega-everything world. As a successful pastor, he launched the servant evangelism movement, but along the way he discovered that significance was not where or what he thought it would be. Now, in a very practical book, he focuses on genuine greatness. Is it the size of the sanctuary? The number of new believers baptized each year? The youth attendance? The quantity of best-selling books the pastor has written? The list of television shows, radio shows or podcasts the pastors appears on? Or is it something more? What is the buzz on good churches that become great in God's eyes? Sjogren argues that greatness is not a point at which you arrive; rather, it is an ongoing process of worshipping, serving and living in God's presence. It is not a slick program; rather, it is a family, a hospital, an army and a school. When God is present, His people are empowered. When God empowers His people, a good church becomes great.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great starting point for evaluating your church's culture  Apr 20, 2010
For some people a great church is one with very large attendance figures and high quality preaching and music. For others, a great church is one where there is authentic community, or a focus on correct doctrine or holding fast to that which is true. In this book, Steve Sjogren, the man who brought the world the idea of servant evangelism, explains his view of what makes a great church.

The book describes 13 characteristics of a great church: it must be simple, engage in transcendent worship, have a strong outward focus, be in tune with the Holy Spirit's leading, create plenty of fun, provide a safe environment, show acceptance to all types of people and particularly sinners, offer small groups where relationships of trust grow, provide a great atmosphere, foster generosity, have a strong commitment to the faith essentials but a weak commitment to traditions and opinions, co-operate with other churches, and demonstrate bold leadership in God's mission.

I am not sure that I agree with everything the book says. I am not persuaded that a church of 300 to 500 people is any more likely to be a great church than a church of under 200 people; and I am not convinced that the optimum service length is an hour in all cultures, or that children always need to be separate from their parents. However, church leaders will find it a highly profitable exercise to use this book as a starting point for evaluating their church culture.
