Publisher's Description

Recommended by the Nazarene Organic Church NetworkChange is rapidly occurring in almost every area of our society. However, the one notable exception to this is often found in the church, especially in smaller churches. Instead of responding to the changes around them, these churches have adopted a maintenance mentality, which is primarily interested in survival and risk-free ministries that are inwardly focused and fail to meet the needs of those outside their church community. If our churches are going to have an impact on today’s culture, we have to move from a maintenance mindset to a missional one.Intentional Ministry in a Not-So-Mega Church is designed to help leaders of smaller churches guide their people in making their primary focus ministering to and meeting the needs of those outside their church. Drawing from more than twenty years of experience as a small-church pastor, Dennis Bickers explores the qualities of transformational leadership and explains what it takes for leaders to create a climate in their churches that promotes and facilitates necessary change. From willingness and vision to risk-taking and commitment, Bickers challenges leaders to become the agents of change their churches need as they seek to answer and act on the question: Who are we here for?

    This book was written with small churches in mind, but the wisdom Bickers shares will aid the thinking of any American Christian. Readers are challenged to remember that the church is not here for its own benefit but to reach out to the community. Are we willing to take risks because we love people? Are we willing to change our programs and invest our resources differently for the sake of the lost? Bickers tells the reader what challenges he or she will most likely face. This book encourages and equips readers for the transition from maintenance to missional churches.
