Publisher's Description

A practical approach for leaders to guide their congregations to become more externally focused

The Externally Focused Quest: Becoming the Best Church for the Community is designed for church leaders who want to transform their churches to become less internally focused and more oriented to the world around them. The book includes the clear guidelines on the ten changes congregations must adopt to become truly outwardly focused. This book is not about getting all churches to have an annual day of community service as a tactic but changing the core of who they are and how they see themselves as a part of their community.

  • Outlines the ten changes needed for church leaders to transform their churches
  • Presents a highly practical approach that shows leaders how to become more externally focused without having to give up programs that serve members
  • A new volume in the popular Leadership Network Series

This book reveals what it takes to make the major shift from an internal to external focus and how that affects church leadership.
