"The best thing about this book is that it is easily accessible for lay leaders in a church. Unlike many in this genre, I would not hesitate to recommend it to my entire leadership team...Twelve Steps to Congregational Transformation is a good entrée into an intimidating array of analyses, opinions, and resources."
Dwight Stinnett, Executive Minister, ABC Great Rivers Region
"Church leaders concerned about the grim statisics of declining and closing churches would do well to consult this primer on renovating the church from within."
Jackie Riley, Baptists Today, April 2007
In a world of rapid and continual change, is your local church struggling just to survive, let alone thrive? Are you seeking transformation but confused about how to adapt? Are you weighing the value of the old against the new but questioning your congregation's capacity to change? Help is on the way with 12 Steps to Congregational Transformation.
Drawing on years of experience in working with churches seeking transformation, author David Laubach has identified primary principles and top priorities for churches that are searching not only for the right answers, but for the right questions. The author's use of light-hearted cartoons, inspiring anecdotes, and personal illustrations makes this book accessible and encouraging for leaders committed to fulfilling the mission of Christ's body on earth.
Written especially for church leaders, Laubach condenses his recommendations into twelve direct and clear steps, each of which includes a biblical reference and commentary that illuminate the topic. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and recommended action steps.
Addressing such topics as creating a healthy church climate, counting the costs of transformation, eliminating "Lone Rangers," and developing effective leaders, 12 Steps to Congregational Transformation should be at the top of the resource list for any church leader in pursuit of a transformed congregation.
