Church Inside Out
Getting church insiders out to bring outsiders in
The majority of America's churches face stagnant or declining membership numbers and are uncertain as to how to reverse that trend. Church Inside Out offers an approach to community evangelism that doesn't call for a compromise in terms of doctrine nor major investments in terms of staff or facilities. It is a how-to guide for the congregation that wants to increase its impact on the community around it.
This book can also be taught as a part of the church's small group ministry. A companion Church Inside Out Workbook is available for each group member.
