Churches are growing. This prophetic and inspirational handbook by church growth expert Bob Jackson explores a variety of growing churches to identify what is making the difference between them and churches which are static or declining.
In addition to numerical growth, it asks how we measure spiritual growth and identifies the signs of spiritual vitality. Bob Jackson relates inspiring stories of effective mission with families, children and young people but also issues pertinent challenges about praying for growth, training leaders, diocesan strategies, spending money effectively, multi-church leadership, the future of the parish model, discipleship in fresh expressions and more.
Earthed, practical and inspirational, What Makes Churches Grow lays a practical and theological foundation for continued growth into the future.
Bob Jackson teaches mission and church growth at St John's Nottingham and runs a church growth consultancy. He was formerly Archdeacon of Walsall, where he was responsible for Lichfield Diocese's growth strategy.
'This book is a wind-sock to point out the direction in which the Spirit is blowing. As those who are charged with catching the wind, there can be few more important books for taking stock. I believe attendance to Bob Jackson's work will help all of us do what we desire to do above all: see where God is at work and join in.' -- Archbishop Justin Welby
Clear, helpful and authoritative.
