Author/Artist Review

Author: Eddy Hall
Located in: Goessel, Kansas
Submitted: September 05, 2000

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Ray Bowman (my coauthor) and I are senior consultants with Living Stones Associates, a church consulting team that works with churches throughout the U.S. and Canada to identify and remove barriers to healthy growth in the areas of ministries, facilities, staffing, and finances.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  After Ray Bowman left his architectural firm where for 30 years he had designed church buildings (among other things), he began consulting with churches. He came to realize that about 9 out of 10 churches that had contacted him thinking they needed to build actually had a better, less costly alternative. Most churches, he realized, were making costly mistakes in building by building too big too soon, or by building the wrong kind of building--one that did not serve their ministries as well as it could have.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This book enables church leaders to determine if their congregations are among the 90% who have a better alternative, and it introduces them to many of the better alternatives that are available to churches. This expanded edition of the book adds a new preface, four new chapters, a new self-test, and a new appendix to the original edition, while updating the original material.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Excerpts of the book, including several online diagnostic tools related to facilities (the Motivation Test, the Need Test, and the Financial Readiness Test) can be found at www.living-stones.com.
