7 Steps to a Purposeful Reformation

There is a worldwide crisis in church leadership!
Is your ministry part of the problem or part of the solution? Are you ready
to embrace God-inspired reform or will it be business as usual? The
vision, purpose, and leadership of pastoral teams will determine the
health of the local church. These seven steps will challenge you to rethink
what the church is and how it should function so that together, congregations
can touch the world with the love of God! The 7 steps include:

  • • Raising up purpose-led men and women of great faith

  • • Equipping people to implement their God-given purpose

  • • Helping leaders bring order out of creative chaos

  • • Helping leaders move from ownership to servant leadership

  • • Developing services and programs that people really want to attend

  • • Moving from fads and copycat expressions to innovative ministries

  • • Meeting the needs of the poor, minorities, and women worldwide

    Complete with study questions at the end of each chapter, Changing the
    Way We Do Church
    will stir your faith and provide biblical understanding
    to embrace 21st century ministry with enthusiasm and purpose.
