Upset with Churches? Suggestions for Change!
Donna Thomas' tremendous book on Missions
A lot of people read my post about being upset with their churches. In fact, it was the most popular post I ever had.
Many people have ideas about how to improve their churches.
When I was a College Hill Pres we had a dynamic and very successful program of selecting and training Evangelism Teams. It was developed by Ron Rand.
One time we were asked to train a church that was losing members fast and said they needed help. George Bass went over to meet with them and discuss how to proceed. He asked them a simple question.
"Who is your target for outreach?"
They said, "People over 60 years of age with a German heritage."
Some Pastors, Elders, Deacons and people do not want to change. They want the world and culture and sinners to change. I am not interested in working with those churches. They are stuck and will very likely die.
Let us know the ways you would like to help a church become more effective. What would you do?
I have consulted with and taught hundreds of churches and thousands of church leaders how to effectively bring people to their organizations. I have my ideas but I want to hear yours.
If you want to see my ideas plunk down a small fee for an eBook on a downloadable PDF. You will love any of them. I guarantee it. (If you read them!!!!)
