Shaped by God's Heart reveals that it's not the church's activity level that defines success but whether its activities accomplish God's mission for His church. This book helps ministers and church leaders move beyond mere survival and maintenance toward a thriving missional mode for their congregations. Missional congregations become fully relevant to today's society without losing what is distinctively Christian in their spiritual practice.
This important resource draws on an extensive two-year field study of two hundred churches from a variety of denominations and geographic regions. Hardcover, 205 pages. Jossey-Bass.
