George has the gift of teaching churches to grow---without abandoning their biblical mandate to love one another. He introduces the idea of ''Meta-Church'': a church that's large enough to celebrate, but because it's based on small cell groups, is still small enough to care. You'll learn how your church members can respond to the needs of their neighbors (both near and far), place leaders according to their gifts, motivate each other to serve, and reap a huge evangelistic harvest. 240 pages, softcover from Revell.
For pastors who want to be prepared to meet the spiritual needs of our rapidly changing society, Prepare Your Church for the Future describes the metachurch, a body that is large enough to celebrate and small enough to care. Specific guidelines aid pastors and church leaders in making theirs the church of their dreams--a caring, witnessing metachurch.
