I wasn't raised a Christian and thank God for Pastor changing the vision for our Church. I was used to the idea of church being boring and not fun. When I first walked into the door, it proved to me that Jesus is fun and exciting. This book will help a lot of churches to get to a point where they can reach the unchurched.
As a church-goer for most of my life, I understand when Pastor Galen Woodward describes a 75 year-old, traditional church that becomes content with a status-quo way of "doing church." Anyone who works, volunteers or regularly attends church - any church - will find this book so insightful in how to change a church culture and how to support a pastor and staff who have a vision to become more than just a church performing traditional religious rituals, but to become a church who passionately wants to reach the unchurched for Christ!
