Publisher's Description

Thousands of Protestant churches are perplexed by plateaued or declining attendance, while other congregations nearby thrive. Is there a way for them to combine forces, drawing on both their strengths, in ways that also increase their missional impact? Church merger consultant Jim Tomberlin, with co-writer Warren Bird, makes the case that mergers today work best not with two struggling churches but with a vital, momentum-filled lead church partnering with a joining church. In this new book, they provide a complete, practical, hands-on guide for church leaders of both struggling and vibrant churches so that they can understand the issues, develop strategies, and execute a variety of forms of merger for church expansion and renewal to reinvigorate declining churches and give them a "second life."

    Better Together: Making Church Mergers Work
    March 4, 2015

    When a church merger opportunity came to us, "Better Together" served as an invaluable guide in helping me think thoroughly through the big picture, reflect on the spiritual dynamics, and grapple with the potential land mines in such a church merger. Authors Jim Tomberlin & Warren Bird led me to ask the right questions and maintain a missional perspective throughout the process. Church mergers is more than a "good idea"; it may be a "God idea".
