You probably have a fairly good idea of what it took to construct the building in which your congregation meets. First, there was a recognized need for a building, followed by a budget, blueprints, fund-raising, construction workers, and building materials, and voilà! The structure proudly stands as a monument to the effective implementation of a well-thought-out plan.

The process of building a strong congregation is basically the same. And you've got to start with a plan.

Building Strong Congregations contains the tools you need to make your congregation's ministry more effective. Worksheets after each chapter walk you through a step-by-step application of the material covered and help you put together a plan of action. You'll also learn how to find answers unique to your organization for such questions as:

What is your congregation's mission?

Whom should your congregation try to reach, and how?

What does your congregation have to offer?

Why should people choose to associate with your congregation and not the one down the street?

How would their needs be met?

How do you ensure that they will want to remain active participants in the life and ministry of your congregation?
