A Second Resurrection: Leading Your Congregation to New Life by Bill Easum

For many congregational and denominational leaders, the goal for churches experiencing declining worship attendance is to turn those congregations around. The ?turnaround church? is one that has stagnated or is in decline. The old trends are reversed, new members are added, and everyone rejoices in this story of a congregation restored to health and vitality.? But what?  if the metaphors of decline, stagnation, and loss of health just aren?t getting to the problem? What if the situation is much worse than what those ways of describing it imply? What if the congregation is spiritually dead?? The only solution is resurrection. Churches that have lost their sense of mission, that exist only to provide fellowship for the ?members of the club,? that expect their leaders to focus solely on ministering to the members? personal spiritual needs; these churches have died to the purpose of the New Testament church, to make disciples of Jesus Christ. They cannot be turned around; they must come to life again. The key to that resurrection is leaders who are not afraid to diagnose the problem for what it really is, and who realize that resurrection is what being a Christian is about.?  The goal of this book is to guide the leaders of these churches through the painful, yet ultimately life-giving work of leading a church to new life in the Spirit.? ? ? If you want to find new life for your church, read on . . .
