Willingness to change is not the only factor that makes churches effective or defective. Yet resistance to change often keeps other assets - friendiness, good preaching, and a caring athmosphere - from accomplishing the mission of the congregation. A lack of openess to new ideas in most congregations causes hundereds of people to vote with their absence each year.
Paul Mundey makes a unique contribution to this complex church leadership issue. Many books illustrate the need for change in congregations. This one provides practical suggestions for accomplishing that art/science. Many books address change theory. This one provides a toolbox of ten principles that really work among frontline practitioners who are trying to transform their congregations.
A leader is by definition an agent of change. A leader has the courage to say "Let's do it differently!" and the skill to help people migrate from present to future while enjoying the trip. A leader knows (a) what to change; (b) how to change it; (c) when to change it; and (d) who to enlist in the initial stages of persuading other group members to move in a new direction. Paul Mundey offers flesh and blood examples of how this happens in congregations.

Learning congregation.

Barn-raising believers.

Bridging toward tomorrow.

Grapping with resistance.

Bolstering bold beggining.
