Are you committed to Jesus Christ - or to a particular doctrine, denomination, or church? Do you speak of faith as an experience of Christ - or as a heritage that you protect? "Spiritual Redwoods" know the answer to these questions. Congregations to whom this term can be applied do not spring spontaneously into existence, nor are they built in a mechanical, by-the-numbers fashion. Instead, they are grown, and providing the enviroment that will grow these vigorous centers of witness and mission is the crucial task of church leadership in our time.

"Growing Spiritual Redwoods" is an effort to help church leaders answer the kinds of questions that confront congregations and Christians in this era of rapid and uncertain change. William M. Easum and Thomas Bandy argue that the congregations to whom the term "spiritual redwoods" can be applied are grown slowly, becoming vigorous centers of witness and mission.
