  • Church Refugees: Sociologists reveal why people are DONE with church but not their faith

    As millions of church members fall into inactivity each year, they've probably also started skipping church on Sunday.   We need answers—not statistics. We need to understand and hear from people who are leaving church so we can find a way to turn around the trend. This book uses in-depth sociological research to get to the heart of the issue. The data is collected from interviews with real people about why they left and who they really are. These aren’t the “nones” who have no religious affiliation. They’re the “dones” who’ve been faithfully serving in local churches for years. This is their story....

  • Defending the Flock: A Security Guide for Church Safety Directors

    For too many churches, security is only a passing concern. They lock the doors to the vestibule when services are not being performed. Perhaps they even have some sort of alarm system in place to prevent break-ins. The sad truth is that this is not nearly enough. We live in troubled times, and they’re only becoming more dire with each passing day. Today’s churches face threats from a myriad of sources, ranging from natural disasters to active shooters, and everything in between. It is essential that you are prepared to protect those who enter your doors to worship, and that you’re capable of protecting them from a wide range of threats....

  • Well Versed: Biblical Answers to Today's Tough Issues

    “I believe that the Bible speaks not merely to personal, family, and church issues, but to national, community, and governmental issues if we would take the time to listen.” –James L. Garlow Conservative Christians admit that they do not speak out on political or cultural issues because they do not know how to support their beliefs from a biblical basis, according to a recent poll. Instead, they remain silent on critical issues like marriage, racism, and transgender issues because they feel uninformed and ill-equipped to defend their beliefs.  New York Times bestselling author and pastor James L. Garlow offers the solution—a pract...

  • Shepherding the Church: Effective Spiritual Leadership in a Changing Culture

    Times are changing. The Truth never will. It's tough to be a pastor today. Christians who stand up for what God has said are disregarded and labeled right-wing extremists. Political correctness and tolerance of anything but godly character is the norm. So how do ministers lead God's people in this pagan culture? How do they shepherd the flock as the lights fade dimmer and the nights grow colder? This book is not about programs. It not about developing the best techniques for numerical growth. Rather it is a discussion of the heart of the matter--the heart of the shepherd. In Shepherding the Church, Dr. Stowell takes a look at what it takes to...

  • Organic Outreach for Churches : Infusing Evangelistic Passion in Your Local Congregation

    Most local churches want to become an evangelistic force in their community, but sporadically focusing on outreach, giving money to missions, and praying for others are not enough. Pastor Kevin Harney shows how organic outreach - sharing faith naturally - happens when churches weave evangelistic passion into every program and
    Preparing The Congregation For A New Pastor
    Nearly all churches and ministries consider themselves dedicated to evangelism, and many explicitly include outreach in their mission statements. But few are actually bearing fruit. Kevin Harney diagnoses this problem and offers guidance for multiplying the outreach impact of churches. Organic Outreach for Churches provides direction for local congregations to weave evangelism into the fabric of the church. Commitment to the Great Commission is not simply about sending money and prayers to missions or holding occasional events to reach out (although these things are good). Organic outreach happens when evangelistic vision and action become the domain of every ministry and

    Preparing The Congregation For A New Pastor
    How are we doing? The church, that is. And how are we doing it? Congregations have long measured success by "bodies, budget, and buildings"--a certain record of attendance, the offering plate, and square footage. But the scorecard can't stop there. When it does, the deeper emphasis on accountability, discipleship, and spiritual maturity is lost. Ignoring those details, we see fewer lives transformed, Christian influence wane, and churches thin out--a situation that is all too familiar across North America today.It is time to take heart and rework the scorecard.According to Ed Stetzer and Thom S. Rainer, the authors of Transformational Church,
