The focus of any good local church should be evangelism and missions, but many churchgoers feel as though they are the ones who should be receiving the attention of the pastor and programs. By focusing church members on the community and reaching out to bring more of them in, the church will realize its future. Paul Borden's book (as well as his ministry, Growing Healthy Churches) shows pastors how to redirect the efforts of the local church while not neglecting their specific needs to bring about real change in the community, country, and ultimately the world.
Lead the kind of ministry youve always dreamed of
Many congregations are declining due to an inward focus, and see their pastor as someone who should only minister to their needs. But pastors must anticipate a better future. Direct Hit offers hope to leaders of congregations that have lost their outward focus. By preparing for and leading systemic change, pastors can bring new life into the culture of a congregation, guiding it to answer Gods call to reach people with the good news.
Direct Hit offers practical explanations for how to:
Systemic change occurs as a result of hard work, but the gain far outweighs the pain. Once change has occurred, a whole new world of opportunity opens upa world in which you are privileged to equip, lead, and oversee a congregation that has joined Gods mission. Ready. Aim. Go for it!
