Publisher's Description

Ten Prescriptions for a Healthy Church offers prescriptions for the top ten issues seen during church consultations. Bob Farr and Kay Kotan share their expertise from working with churches across the country, detailing the most common concerns and obstacles, and then go straight to the point: What to change, and how, for positive results. They offer a helpful approach to fixing common problems, and strategies to help congregations achieve success in specific areas of ministry. Proven success stories offer practical application, inspiration, and hope.

I love the way this book addresses issues of mission, vision, worship, hospitality, outreach, and other important matters and offers concrete, pragmatic practices to fulfill these without compromising the gospel. This is a refreshing new guide for pastors and laity. --Tex Sample, Robert B. and Kathleen Rogers Professor Emeritus of Church and Society, Saint Paul School of Theology

Bob and Kay have so much experience. They get it: the types of changes most churches need are not new. The pathway to health is not flashy. Basic, steady, strong: That is what you find in this very useful material. -- Cathy Townley, Worship and Church Planting Consultant and Coach, Minnesota Annual Conference, UMC

Bob Farr is a powerhouse of a leader who has a great grasp on what it takes for a congregation to discover the path toward vitality and health. As you read the prescriptions in this amazing book, you will see a catalyst for Jesus Christ. --Bob Crossman, New Church Strategist; author, Committed to Christ: Six Steps to a Generous Life

Nobody is better than Bob and Kay at explaining the concept -- and the specifics -- of  ’Prescriptions’ than can improve local church health. Very few people have spent more hours in church basements, parlors and sanctuaries across the country helping churches diagnose – and overcome—the real life problems they face.  Leveraging years of experience and insights, this book is an easy-to-use, instrumental tool for clergy and laity in churches that are willing to take definitive steps toward a new future. --Jim Ozier, Church Consultant, Coach, Speaker; author, Clip In: Risking Hospitality in Your Church
