Becoming a Healthy Church: Ten Traits of a Vital Ministry
by Steven Macchia
You've been to the seminars, taken the surveys, heard the guest speakers. You've even read many of the books regarding church growth. But you may still wonder how all this applies to you and your church. Stephen Macchia has gathered a multitude of experiences from pastors, lay leaders, and parishioners representing nearly two thousand churches to illustrate how to move beyond church growth to church health.
Healthy growth is a process that requires risk taking, lifestyle changes, and on-going evaluation. Macchia, president of Vision New England, knows churches that took risks, shifted their paradigms, and grew. This book is designed to be a practical, hands-on manual to launch you and your church into a process of change.
