Written by church consultant Will Mancini expert on a new more or less visioning process to assist churches develop a stunningly unique model of ministry that results in redemptive movement. He guides churches away from an internal focal point to emphasise participation of their community and surrounding culture. On this essential book, Mancini offers an approach for rethinking what it means to steer with clarity as a visionary. Mancini explains that every church has a culture that reflects its particular values, thoughts, attitudes, and actions and shows how church leaders can unlock their church’s individual DNA and unleash their congregation’s one-of-a-kind potential.
ORGANIC CHURCH: Growing Faith Where Life Happens
Churches have tried a wide variety of how one can attract new and younger members – revised vision statements, hipper worship, latest music, livelier sermons, bigger and better auditoriums. But there are still such a lot of people who aren’t being reached, who don’t wish to come to church. And the truth is that attendance at church on Sundays does not necessarily turn into lives; God’s presence in our hearts is what changes us. Leaders and laypeople far and wide are realizing that they need new and more powerful how one can help them spread God’s Word. According to international church starter and pastor Neil Cole, if we wish to connect with young people and those who aren’t coming to church, we will have to go where people congregate. Cole shows readers how to plant the seeds of the Kingdom of God in the places where life happens and where culture is formed – restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, parks, locker rooms,and neighborhoods. Organic Church offers a hands-on guide for demystifying this new model of church and shows the practical aspects of implementing it.
