Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Callahan, who has written a number of books on Church development and effectiveness, offers advice for pastors and congregations on both how to begin a new pastorate or how to create a new beginning in an ongoing ministry. He elaborates four ways in which a good match develops between pastor and congregation: the pastor and people must "fall in love with each other"; the pastor's skills must match with the goals and hopes of the community; the pastor and the community must "mutually grow in the mission"; and they must experience God and advance the gifts that God has blessed them with. Basing his advice on these four basic principles, Callahan discusses the obstacles of the first few months of ministry, successful preaching, and ways to have fun with a new congregation.
