Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800631528, Paperback)A guide for congregations wanting to move away from "maintenance thinking" to powerful, creative engagement with the world God loves!
This book argues compellingly for the centrality of mission in understanding the church and provides a model for congregational leadership that will help move congregations beyond a maintenance mentality to vital engagement with the world God loves. Nessan's model of congregational leadership is strongly centered on worship life of a congregation and the entirety of the church's ministry. The chapters provide solid theological and practical direction on the themes of worship, education, fellowship, stewardship, evangelism, global connections, ecumenism, and social ministry. It is a book that will find a home in both the academy and the parish---a textbook for seminarians and a guide and resource for pastors and lay congregational leaders.
