Item Description...
Overview
That today's mainline churches are in crisis is apparent; a solution is less obvious. In this constructive new book E. Stanley Ott points a way ahead, describing twelve shifts in philosophy and practice that can help congregations build need-responsive, disciple-growing churches full of life and vigor. Arguing that the weakness of the church today is a loss of personal spirituality and congregational vitality, Ott challenges local churches to discover how to adjust the style of their ministries to attract new people while encouraging current members. Ott examines the characteristics of "traditional" churches, extols the features of new, "transformational" churches, and lays out proposals to help established congregations make the transition. Well balanced by an honest assessment of the church's present and a positive vision for its future, this book is must reading for pastors, church leaders, and members of every congregation.
