Discover your unique strengths and values -- and what God wishes for the future of your church.All congregations want to thrive and remain vibrant -- but it's not always easy. Many approaches to growth and renewal don't quite fit, because they don't take into account the "spiritual DNA" of the congregation -- those intrinsic characteristics that give each congregation its unique identity. Cracking Your Congregation's Code provides a practical program for reaching the heart of what must be done to survive and thrive. This unique book guides clergy and lay leaders to create or revisit their mission, vision, and values. The authors' proven, field-tested change process will help congregations in any setting refocus on what really matters in ministry: welcoming, nurturing, empowering, and serving new and current members.
