Publisher's Description

Spent Matches explores the possibility that a few small paradigm shifts within the church might make the difference between extinction and effectiveness. In fact, taking a clue from the automobile industry, the church might be able to not only halt the rapid decay in attendance but also become an effective tool in achieving Jesus' final command. For instance, the Hybrid car has become the answer to Detroit's environmental and oil crisis issues. Finding the synergy between two technologies, gas and electric has created a new day for the auto industry. Likewise, Spent Matchesexplores how the church can find synergy between two seemingly competing thoughts: an invitation to come and a command to go. The Hybrid metaphor brings energy to the church's mission and an explanation to the age-old argument of Missional versus Attractional methods.

Features include: 

  • Innovative ideas for growing the church
  • Methods to reach those who may never have attended church
  • Scripture passages that touch on the subject of church growth

Author Bio

Roy Moran felt the whisper of God's Spirit move him at 17. Learning how to catalyze spiritual change has been the passion of his life. His education in Greek at Baylor University and the theological tutelage under Howard Hendricks at Dallas Theological Seminary engaged his soul and mind in the methods of Jesus. He and his wife, Candy, have 4 children and 8 grandchildren who fill their lives with opportunities to enjoy a life of catalyzing spiritual transformation.

Refraction books speak to the most troubling issues we face today in a candid dialog that interacts with our culture through a biblical lens, utilizing a holistic approach of intellectual engagement, emotional vulnerability, and spiritual challenge for the next generation.
