Product Description

One of the church's primary responsibilities is to foster genuine spiritual growth in people's lives. Today's pastors bring tremendous effort and passion to this task, but they are often disappointed by people who sit in the pews for years, knowing about Jesus but never really knowing him. In 2004, Willow Creek Community Church in suburban Chicago undertook a three-year study to measure spiritual growth called the REVEAL Spiritual Life Survey. Over the next six years, additional data was collected from over a quarter million people in well over a thousand churches of every size, denomination, and geographic area.Move presents verifiable, fact-based, and somewhat startling findings from the latest REVEAL research, drawing on compelling stories from actual people---congregation members of varying spiritual maturity, as well as pastors who are equally candid as they share their disappointments and their successes. It provides a new lens through which church leaders can see and measure the evidence of spiritual growth. The local church is uniquely equipped to foster spiritual growth and challenge people to pursue a life of full devotion to Christ. Move helps pastors and church leaders inspire and direct that challenge with confidence as they lead their congregations to move closer to Christ.

    The results of their study were very revealing. It changes the way we think about ministry and what is important to people going to church.

    This study helps us see clearly where churches are succeeding and where they are failing. The book confirmed some of my worst fears, while offering hope for the future. While I do question some of wording used in the surveys, I do not question the validity of the findings. A must read for those in, or going into, ministry.

    OK, maybe I have a few issues with definitions, but here is something that is relevant and helpful to my situation in an old, established, mainline church. If your passion is church growth and/or financial prosperity, forget this one. But if all that keeps you in the job as pastor is a desire to see people formed in the image and character of Jesus then fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride.
