Changing Churches is valuable for church leaders.
February 3, 2013
Changing Churches is a unique and critical look at the different types of churches, members, those coming an d those going! I personally love chapter 9, Ideas for the Shepherds! The authors insights and ideas are priceless! The information in this book can be helpful to members considering leaving their church and people looking for a church. The instruction for Shepherds and sheep is valuable in this changing culture. In a time when people come and go - in and out of churches, I have found little material available to help in every situation. Dottie Parish has compiled that information into one instruction manual for the churches today. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a church, ready to leave a church, or the Shepherd of one!
The very personal notes and comments gives the reader a better understanding of the conflict leavers feel and the discontent that leads up to it. The common sense answers and suggestions have the potential to keep some members from leaving, and to assist those who are determined to leave an idea of what they are looking for.
