Is your church ready for an exciting---and risky---change from program-driven to purpose-driven ministry? Southerland shares his 8-step strategy based on principles from Nehemiah. Field-tested concepts and personal experiences combine with Scripture and action plans to help leaders transform knowledge into reality! 240 pages, softcover from Zondervan.
A biblical look at how to steer a congregation in a new and exciting direction aligned with God's unique purpose for them. Transitioning is written to help church leaders and their congregations successfully navigate change and discover that the rewards far exceed the risk. Drawing principles from the book of Nehemiah, Southerland maps out an eight-step strategy for moving from being a traditional, ministry-driven church to a purpose-driven church. Transitioning illustrates practical, field-tested concepts with examples from the Bible and Southerland's own experience. A detailed workbook section with fill-in-the-blanks, scripture passages, and action steps helps pastors and their leadership teams convert knowledge into reality.
