Publisher's Summary

You've probably noticed....

Churches aren't growing.

Young adults are walking away.

Volunteers are hard to recruit.

Leaders are burning out.

And the culture is changing faster than ever before.

There's no doubt the church is in a moment in history for which few church leaders are prepared.

You can look for answers, but the right response depends on having the right conversation.

In Lasting Impact, Carey Nieuwhof leads you and your team through seven conversations that will help your church grow and have a lasting impact.

What if....

  • Having the right conversations could change your trajectory?
  • There was more hope than you realized?
  • The potential to grow was greater than the potential to decline?
  • Your community was waiting for a church to offer the hope they're looking for?
  • Your best days as a church were ahead of you?

Maybe the future belongs to the churches that are willing to have the most honest conversations at a critical time. That's what Lasting Impact is designed to facilitate.

So much better than I anticipated

Judging from the description of the book, I was hopeful that the content would be strong and applicable to the circumstances that I was applying it to. What I was not expecting to find was an excellent voice telling the story, audibly and from a content perspective. At some point early on it became obvious that much of the book was an audible version of the author's blog. I wasn't sure how I felt about that upon hearing it but as the book continued I appreciated the voice and the perspective from which each chapter and portion was written. I highly recommend listening to this if you were interested in changing your church I highly recommend listening to this if you are interested in changing your church or leadership style for the better

CHURCH GROWTH

This is a Church Growth Manual. Puts Light on 20th Century Church issues with Laser light accuracy. Often as an organisation, one wonders where the stagnation is stemming from, herein this 7 Conversations lay it bare, giving the Reader the diagnosis required for effective problem handling and church dynamics.
A must Read for any Church leader that wants to remain relevant in our current generation that is over laden with information and now the challenge is to harness it for positive outcomes .
