Over half of all North Americans live in the suburbs. In The Suburban Church, retired pastor Arthur H. DeKruyter encourages Christians to "go where the people congregate" and illustrates how to plant, grow, and renew suburban congregations. Throughout this book, DeKruyter relies on forty-five-plus years of pastoral ministry experience in which his own congregation grew from five families to more than five thousand members. He dispels myths about suburbia and demonstrates how to minister successfully, fit historic preaching and worship to suburban needs, finance church programs, recruit and support volunteers, connect international missions to local church growth, and more. Each chapter concludes with questions for discussion, making the book ideal for pastors and church committees.
