Product description

In Hope for the Church the author takes a challenging look at recent church attendance figures and sets out to interpret their message for today's Church. Bob Jackson highlights areas where the Church is growing, analyses causes of decline and outlines strategic responses to the problem of declining numbers. Hope for the Church is, in essence, a plea to the church not to lose heart, but to be pro-active in the face of rapid social change. Features up-to-date analysis of church attendance figures and practical growth strategies for all levels of leadership.

Author Information

Bob Jackson

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.
