Overview

For many people, church is there to meet their needs--with programs designed with them in mind. Strategic Disciple Making teaches these churchgoers to develop a servant's heart. Readers will discover that they control the destiny of their church. If they seek personal contentment, they must grow as disciples, and church expert Aubrey Malphurs explains the true meaning of the word.

This refreshing resource offers a radical "how-to" for renewing faltering faith. It is perfect for burned-out ministers and downcast church leaders who want a more authentic discipleship experience.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Malphurs (pastoral ministries, Dallas Theological Seminary; Developing a Vision for Ministry in the 21st Century) is a teacher and author of numerous books on pastoral leadership and church management. His latest focuses on the church's mission of making disciples of Christ. Intended as a practical volume for pastors and other full-time church staff, this work lays out a biblical framework for disciple making, which the author contends is the key mission of the church-one around which everything else must revolve-and then a practical process for integrating the church around this key task. The theme that mission drives programming, staffing, and budgeting is familiar to anyone in the nonprofit world, and Malphurs here skillfully weaves it into a faith-based setting. The majority of his book applies to any size church, while the last two chapters on staffing and budgeting are valuable primarily to larger churches. Highly recommended for academic libraries and where local demand for church management books is strong.
