Publisher's Description

Who Moved My Pulpit? may not be the exact question you’re asking. But you’re certainly asking questions about change in the church—where it’s coming from, why it’s happening, and how you’re supposed to hang on and follow God through it—even get out ahead of it so your church is faithfully meeting its timeless calling and serving the new opportunities of this age.
 
Based on conversations with thousands of pastors, combined with on-the-ground research from more than 50,000 churches, best-selling author Thom S. Rainer shares an eight-stage roadmap to leading change in your church. Not by changing doctrine. Not by changing biblical foundations. But by changing methodologies and approaches for reaching a rapidly changing culture.
 
You are the pastor. You are the church staff person. You are an elder. You are a deacon. You are a key lay leader in the church. This is the book that will equip you to celebrate and lead change no matter the cost. 
 
The time is now.

    Considering changes in your church? This is a must read!

    "Who Moved My Pulpit?" is a very engaging book to read. Mr. Rainer covers the different stages that should be covered when making changes within a church. Too often, changes are made too quickly, resulting in resentment, resistance or people leaving the church. This book has such wisdom regarding how to more effectively make changes in a manner that has less resistance and ultimately will give glory to God. Most of our churches in America are in dire need of change as they are becoming emaciated. We need change to happen so we will be more outward focused rather than inward focused. Thom does an amazing job covering this, and I would highly recommend this book to any church leaders or anyone that is interested in helping to change our churches for God's glory. I received a copy of this book in exchange for this review from B&H Publishing and all opinions are my own.

    I'm not a pastor but this gives insight into what my pastor has to deal with. Consider giving it to your pastor after you read it.

    The subtitle Leading Change In The Church says it all. Rainer is the premier expert on church change as he has exclusively given his life over to helping with local church issues. Its the same size as his popular I Am a Church Member, but this time he aims specifically at those who are actively trying to change churches from a dying model.

    Dont confuse this book with those telling you to change to a specific new model. He only reminds us of our stated mission of reaching people and assumes pastors will seek the Lord about the specific changes needed to bring that out. He focuses on dealing with the inevitable resistance that will be found in most established churches to change.

    He reminds us that no matter how needed change may be, change can be badly mismanaged and doomed to failure. The bulk of the book is 8 elements of implementing change. These elements have been beaten out on the anvil of hard experience and seem incredibly wise.

    Rainer is a man easy to appreciate. There is a humility and real concern that pervades his writings. He instructs without a heavy hand and seems to be genuinely rooting for you on these pages.

    As a pastor, I found real instruction in this volume. Its another winner from Rainers pen.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    Very interesting. Have gone through many similar situations at our church. Because 0f changes that were made, our church continues to grow and lives are being changed. If your church has become stagnant, I would highly recommend this book to any church leader.
