‘Thriving churches in the twenty-first century – 10 life giving systems for vibrant ministry’
Gary McIntosh & Daniel Reeves As churches position themselves for healthy, growing ministry, pastors and church leaders must understand the changes that affect the church. “But more importantly “, Gary McIntosh and Daniel Reeves write, “churches need to focus on being intentional in how they respond.” Using the analogy of the human body, Thriving Churches in the twenty-first century explores the ten interacting systems that make up a healthy body. If working together, these life-giving systems, which include spiritual energy, mentoring and intentional evangelism, will help your church experience lasting spiritual growth and robust ministry. Our library is a valuable resource. Keep it viable by using it.
The next FundScrip order date is Friday July 23rd. July’s specials are: Ultramar (2.5%), DeSerre (7%) and The Canadian Brewhouse (10%)
