Thom Rainer

Thom S. Rainer is the author of twenty-five books, and the founding dean of the Billy Graham School of Missions and Evangelism at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also led Rainer Group for fifteen years, a church and denominational consulting firm that provided church health insights and analysis to over 500 churches and Christian organizations.

In this book, respected church consultant, founder and CEO of Church Answers, and author of several church leadership books, Thom S. Rainer, shows how the trend of low church attendance is slowly undermining churches and sending many to the grave. With this leadership parable, Thom illustrates the five key dysfunctions that plague congregations and block healthy church growth. He demonstrates why church leaders need to pay more attention to core issues like unbelief, membership, and dedication to evangelism.

Imagine each member of your congregation devoted to prayer! Rainer shares a 30-day journey, offering an easy-to-use tool for church leaders, with daily focus topics to "pray and go" that aren't cumbersome or time-consuming. Marvel at God's great works that are prompted by the supplications of believers for each other and their community! 240 pages, hardcover from Tyndale.
