Twelve Keys to an Effective Church. A proven program for church renewal that has brought new vitality to thousands of congregations. Why do some churches thrive and play vital roles in their communities while others struggle to retain members and stay financially sound? How can churches today build on their strengths as they move forward to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century? In this groundbreaking study, Kennon Callahan identifies the twelve essential characteristics of successful, growing churches and offers all congregations a way to unlock their potential for effective ministry. These twelve keys to an effective church include * a concrete, well-defined mission * dynamic worship * small groups that build community * a few strong, well-selected programs and activities * solid financial resources Callahan examines each of the twelve keys in depth. And he provides solid, practical guidelines and tools to help any church assess itself in each key area, correct deficiencies, build on existing strengths, and track its overall progress. The Twelve Keys program balances practical planning with theological understanding to help churches function more effectively as they seek to grow and better serve their members. Twelve Keys to an Effective Church is regarded as the most useful and comprehensive long-range planning resource available. Since it was first published in 1983, hundreds of thousands of churches have used this program to strengthen and grow their congregations. Drawing on nearly forty years of consulting experience with churches of all sizes and denominations--mainline and evangelical--Callahan has provided a tested and proven approach to church renewal that will bring new vitality to congregations of the twenty-first century.
