'A liberating piece of work.' -- Richard Chartres, Bishop of London 'Bob Jackson's The Road to Growth confronts us with some truths about ourselves. Sometimes uncomfortable, always provocative, and ultimately helpful, this is a book that helps us imagine a new future. As they say, there are truths, home truths and statistics.' -- Stephen Cottrell
Before ordination Bob Jackson was a Government Economic Adviser. After twenty years in parish ministry he joined Springboard - the Archbishop of Canterbury's initiative to encourage, renew and mobilise the Church for evangelism. He then spent five years as Archdeacon of Walsall with responsibility for the Diocesan Growth Strategy in the Diocese of Lichfield.
Since 2009 Bob has divided his time between teaching mission and church growth at St. John's Nottingham and church growth consultancy. He has published several books with Church House Publishing, including Hope for the Church and The Road to Growth, both of which received widespread positive reactions. His Everybody Welcome course, written with George Fisher, is helping many churches better welcome and integrate their newcomers.
