How can the pastor and the congregation best forge a dynamic and productive partnership? What do the most successful churches do to maximize their effectiveness? Answers to these questions and more await you in this revised edition of Lyle E. Schaller's The Pastor and the People.
Every year for the past quarter-century, Lyle E. Schaller has personally visited and studied one hundred to three hundred congregations representing better than three dozen denominations across the United States and Canada. This extraordinary experience has earned him wisdom and insight that he shares with you here.
Schaller uses the fictitious Reverend Don Johnson -- an embodiment of the most successful pastors Schaller has met -- to explore problems that arise during the "courtship, marriage, and honeymoon" period when a pastor and congregation come together. Church leaders and laity who wonder how successful churches solve common problems will find this book indispensable.
