Growing an Engaged Church

How to Stop “Doing Church” and Start BEING The Church Again.  By Albert L. Winseman, published by Galuup Press, 2006.

“So if we believe the world is in need of the life-giving love of Jesus Christ, we’d better do everything we can not only to strengthen existing local congregations, but also to effectively plant new churches that meet the needs of and proclaim the Gospel to emerging generations.”  p. 7.

The book centers around the concept of engagement and the importance of measuring it.  He tells stories of the value of welcoming and hospitality and what happens when we as church are not.  He offers a challenge to all church leaders and people in the pews to embrace the mission of hospitality if we want a vibrant and living Church in the future. 

Certainly worth the read!
