Church Mergers : A Guidebook for Missional Change Hardback
The need to merge churches is growing ever more urgent.
This is true across cultures and denominations, for both church plants and established churches.
The recent trend is for new churches to occupy the property of older churches and eventually assume ownership.
However, the experience of past mergers has largely been disappointing.
Some leaders are skeptical; others are hopeful, but do not know how to go about it.
This book explains why healthy mergers are possible and how to achieve them.
It provides a practical template to guide churches of all sizes and denominations in the process.
It identifies pitfalls and opportunities. And it offers essential information on topics of critical momentum and critical mass that have long been obscure.
A faithful, healthy merger is possible; and the whole can be greater than the sum of the parts.
