Something has to change. Bound by tradition, congregations often resist the very changes they need to make in order to thrive. Leading Congregational Change offers proven processes and tools for revitalizing churches of any size and across the broad spectrum of denominations.
Jim Herrington, Mike Bonem, and James Furr write from their experience in guiding dozens of churches through change. They draw on biblical principles and important business thinkers such as John Kotter on leading change and Peter Senge on learning organizations. This readable book distills the authors’ insights and practices into simple but powerful concepts, which are captured in the “congregational transformation model.” The model integrates spiritual vitality, learning disciplines, and an intentional process for change, all of which are essential for change efforts to endure.
Leading Congregational Change has been used in congregations, seminaries and denominational bodies across the country as one of the most respected texts on this challenging topic. The accompanying Leading Congregational Change Workbook was written for congregational leadership teams to use as a group. It includes dozens of exercises that can help guide the change journey. If change is in your future, these are resources you will be glad to have in your hands.
