Product Description

Join three seasoned church-ministry experts on an insider's tour of the most innovative churches today. Discover a dozen types of innovation, each with profiles of congregations that have implemented that innovation.

11 Innovations in the Local Church is more than a show-and-tell tour, however. Each chapter offers a solid take-away for church leaders on how to learn and apply the appropriate innovation profiled. Authors Elmer Towns, Ed Stetzer, and Warren Bird also offer scripturally based assessments of both the positive and negatives implications of implementing each innovation, providing guidance and wisdom. There are many ways to present the gospel, and this timely book will serve as a springboard for church leaders scratching their heads and asking themselves, "What should we do next?" By learning from a dozen different church types, church leaders can become more intentional about exploring new directions and reaching more of the world for Christ.
