Church health is measured by more than just numbers, but declining membership is often a key symptom of a church in crisis. The pastor of a dying church doesn't need to be told it is dying - he needs hope. In this book, Andrew Davis offers the lessons he's learned in his own journey of leading church transformation, including:
- Keeping Christ's ownership of the church central
- Being humble
- Choosing your battles wisely
- Empowering godly men to join in leadership
- Making prayer a priority
- Focusing on the Word
Church decline is not inevitable. This book gives pastors the spiritual support they long for and the practical advice they need to turn their churches around and position them for greater health in the future.
"I can't recall ever making this statement about a book: church leaders need this."
