Publisher's Description

Change is vital to the life of a church. Pastors and church leaders continually seek new ways to improve their church’s health, community, and outward compassion. They study the trends, attend seminars, and research new programs. But when it comes to actually implementing or moving toward a transition, many leaders hesitate—uncertain how to initiate or shepherd the change. It’s one thing to want to transition—it’s another to know how.In Innovative Transitions, well-known pastor Dale Galloway and church researcher Warren Bird team up to give church leaders practical methods to move their churches from comfortable maintenance to genuine, vibrant mission. They share 15 inspiring stories of successful turnaround churches, each of which models a unique style of transition. From leadership development to a renewed vision for outreach, they offer insight and transferable principles for church leaders to use--regardless of church size or denomination. Their innovative ideas will help leaders successfully implement change as their church transitions from one generation to another.Filled with poignant scriptures, questions for discussion, and relevant examples, Innovative Transitions will sharpen your understanding of church growth and show you new opportunities to take Christ into the world.

    Dale Galloway and Warren Bird captured an excellent cross section of workable ideas, while emphasizing dependence on the mercies and grace of God in chruch building. Too many writings on this subject give most of the credit to the human techniques and not enough to God; almost forgetting that the real Church is His and we are given the great priviledge of participating in its building. "Innovative -" is well written and has some outstanding helps.

    This book was a huge encouragement and challenge, and chock full of both conceptual and practical ideas. Each chapter features a different pastor/church situation, concluding with the advice of that pastor on how they were able to transition their church into a larger, healthier family. At the end, I felt that I had carried on a brief conversation with each pastor. Not all of the advice was useful to me in my situation of course, but it never will be. My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that all of the churches (mega-churches dependant on your definition) featured were in urban or heavily populated suburban areas, meaning that the churches started with more people and resources for the transitions than their rural or suburban brothers and sisters may have. I would have really liked the account of a church that started with less than a hundred and now has less than five hundred attendees - any pastor who had those lower numbers would have made it a more well-rounded book I think. However, even with the higher numbers, I only felt that a few ideas were useless to the less populated ministries. Would HIGHLY recommend to any pastor who is in or soon may be entering a church that needs to get out of stagnancy and make a transition to greater outreach and renewed vibrancy!
