Publisher's Description

A theologically grounded, yet practical, user-friendly guide for church leaders seeking to save their churches. A methodical, logical approach for strategic development and decision-making. A clear process for showing congregations how to define their reality, and a map showing the way to move forward. Offers a clear process to help congregations understand their situation by taking an honest "look in the mirror." Helps congregations build a realistic roadmap for moving forward. Illustrates how the status quo (institutionalism) is rewarded and that seeking transformation goes against institutionalism. Outlines what it means to be an adept church, a church that can navigate between a rock and a hard place because it makes decisions based upon where it needs to go and not where it is currently. Provides practical, first step for congregations to move forward.
