In the midst of decline among mainline denominational churches, why are some of those churches thriving? As pastor of one of those growing mainline churches, Rev. Pierson thinks he knows why. The growing church is unashamedly enterprising, bible-believing, and embraces the charismatic and experiential. But, above all, growing churches are effectively reaching out to meet the real needs of people around them. Here is the road map for needs-based thinking and organizing for your church.
Robert D. Pierson is the pastor Christ United Methodist Church in Tulsa, OK.
By meeting needs of people through intentional ministries, churches will grow; but more importantly they will fulfill their biblical mandate to care for those who are hurting and suffering.
Being a Good Samaritan church begins with the leadership. It requires an absolute commitment to address the needs of people in order to invite them to become disciples of Jesus Christ. But in order to compete with and appeal to unchurched people in today's secular and consumer-driven society, the church needs to be entrepreneurial in its method of evangelist outreach. In this book, Rev. Robert Pierson, shows how churches can better organize ministry in order to be effective witnesses. By meeting felt needs of people through intentional ministries, the church will grow to be sure; but more importantly it will fulfill its biblical mandate to care for those who are hurting and suffering
