This book is intended for anyone interested in revitalizing mainline Protestant churches, and underscores the need to develop more spiritually focused models of church growth. Based upon more than eighteen years of experience in leading Hope United Mehodist Chruch in Southfiels, Michigan, where membership rose from two hundred to more than three thousand members, this book is written for pastors and laypeople who are interested in developing new paradigms for ministry.
The purpose of the church is simple: it exists to bring people to salvation in Christ, and to positively and permanently change lives for the good of the community. The way the church fulfills this basic calling is through empowerment: endowing people with the capacity to be recipients and catalysts of positive social and personal change. Too many churches in North American have neglected this basic calling, argues the author. If they are to become thriving centers of personal and social transformation, then they must work to empower the whole person through ministries that work at the same time for spiritual, relational, and communal transformation. Only when they thus empower individuals to be disciples of Jesus Christ in ways that then transform those individuals' personal relations and the communities in which they live will the church have fulfilled its basic calling.
