Item Description...
Overview
When Robert Chesnut became pastor in 1988, East Liberty Presbyterian Church was a declining and graying congregation. Over the next ten years, Chesnut sparked a remarkable - and often controversial - turnaround in membership, ministry, and finances. "Transforming The Mainline Church" gives the inside story of that renewal, and also provides valuable lessons for other beleaguered congragations. This dramatic account urges all congregations to be more open to diversity; to emphasize the arts and a broad range of music; to support aggressive, entrepreneurial leadership; and to move beyond narrow denominational concerns in favor of an approach that responds to the religious hungers of a new generation.

1. New Beginnings: Facing The Challenge Of Change 2. Building And Battling 3. Transforming The Church For A New Millennium

Publishers Description

In "Transforming the Mainline Church," Robert Chesnut provides valuable lessons for inner-city churches. He urges congregations to be more open to diversity, to emphasize the arts and music, to support entrepreneurial leadership, and to move beyond denominational concerns to an approach that responds to the religious hungers of a new generation.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Mainline Medicine  Dec 29, 2000
Chesnut provides a wealth of 21st Century ministry suggestions through the lens of his own personal experience at Cathedral of Hope. While he is unabashed in sharing his own theological and pastoral perspectives, he is equally open about how surprising and varied have been the resources that have enabled his vision. Great resource for anyone evaluating current trends in Protestant Christianity. Descriptive of renewal in a dwindling, urban, mainline congregation, but applicable to a wide range of congregational situations and settings. I found it inspiring, pastoral via the author's own vulnerability, and filled with both practical suggestions and stimulating reflection. It is a great read!
