Be the Church Jesus calls us to be.

Bob Farr asserts that to change the world, we must first change the Church. As Adam Hamilton says in the Foreword, "Read [this book] carefully with other leaders in your church. . . . You'll soon discover both a desire to renovate your church and the tools to effectively lead your church forward."If we want to join Robert Schnase and claim radical hospitality, passionate worship, intentional faith development, risk-taking mission and service, and extravagant generosity, we must also engage pastors and motivate churches. We must renovate and overhaul our churches and not merely redecorate and tinker with our church structure.

With straightforward language and practical tips, this book will inspire and help you organize your church for new life on the mission field. Learn how togrow your church and discover thecommitments that denominational leaders must make to guarantee the fruitfulness of local congregations.
