Publisher's Description

There’s no scoreboard in the sanctuary, and the only plate is probably for the offering. But every church leader needs to know how to win, and every congregation needs to know when to cheer. This insightful book speaks to every church leader who yearns for a simpler, more effective approach to ministry. An engaging parable about one overwhelmed pastor is followed by an overview of seven successful team practices, each one developed and applied in a ministry setting. Reinforced by relevant discussion questions, these clear, easy, and strategic practices can turn any ministry into a winning team.

Your ministry is perfectly designed to produce the results you are currently experiencing. If you are satisfied with those results, you don’t need this book. If not, it’s time for a change.

Like your own personal trainer, 7 Practices of Effective Ministry is an insightful guide for any leader who yearns for a simpler, more effective approach to ministry. Here are seven strategic principles that when put into play will bring focus and clarity to everything you do and turn your ministry into a winning team.


Story Behind the Book

Looking for ways to help pastors faced with hectic lives and depleted resources, Andy Stanley, Reggie Joiner, and Lane Jones decided to write a parable about the complicated life of a local pastor. Rather than come straight at those in ministry with formulas and lists, they engage readers in an effort to have them identify with the character.



"For many years, I practiced and taught church growth. What I have witnessed as a member at North Point takes church growth to a whole new level. Andy and his team communicate principles that will add value to you and the church you love."
-John C. Maxwell, founder, The INJOY Group

"Every professional athlete recognizes the value of solid coaching. The best are always working to get better. From what I’ve seen at North Point, these seven practices can improve the game of any church in America."
-John Smoltz, Cy Young Award-winning pitcher

"The practices covered in this book are down-to-earth, practical, and come from real difference-makers who know what church leadership is all about. Andy, Reggie, and Lane have definitely hit the ball out of the park with the 7 Practices of Effective Ministry."
-Ed Young, Jr., senior pastor, Fellowship Church

    The Gospel. If you want to read this book to have an effective ministry then don't waste your time. Certainly if these 7 practices were used in the first two hundred years of the Church it would have stopped in its tracks. It is no different now. You can't mix humanistic philosophy and methodologies when building an effective Christ ministry, you simply need Gospel hardened preachers of God's Word to preach the Word in season and out. When you mix worldly culture in trying to spread the Gospel, such as these purpose driven church lite seeker 'pastor/authors' you have to ask if God is in it. These authors have joined with some of the most heretical 'so called pastors' of our day in the seeker movement. They don't preach the true Word of God and they simply insist you buy their latest books and spend thousands on their worthless programs while keeping you entertained as you sing your way down the broad path. I am amazed at the gullible people that continue to buy into this purpose driven church lite seeker material. If you are a Christian Church you have no need for humanistic methodologies, you simply need the Holy Spirit to guide you in your teaching. The book should be titled, 7 Failures of Todays Seeker Ministries.
