Terence Corkin and Julia Wallace's The Church Guide for Making Decisions Together provides a step-by-step guide on how to create a new way of working together. Drawing on tried and tested processes, it advocates for a consensus building approach and showing people how it can work in their setting (local church or judicatory meetings). Readers will learn how to design a consensus building business process for their church meeting while still respecting the denominational and legal requirements under which they must operate.
For leaders, church board and committee members, and church members who reconigize there is something wrong with the present system, this guidebook is hopeful, inspiring, and practical.
