Over my years in ministry Karls Vaters has been a trusted guide in church ministry through his various writings. The last title I had read by him Small Church Essentials was a helpful corrective toward the attitude that bigger is better in regards to church size. In this book Vaters continues his emphasis on church healthiness by addressing how to implement health-producing change.
The first section of the church provides guidance in understanding the current health of the church. The following sections address how to assess the needs of the church and leads the church in a process of addressing issues in the church that might be hindering church health. One of the great things about this book is that it deals with the generalities in such a way this book will be helpful in a wide range of scenarious.
I’ve been reading this book and look forward to being able to implement what I have learned in the life of my church.
