Book Reviews

Church Growth
Increasing church attendance is about making new disciples of Christ and teaching them. For mega churches and average size congregations, numerical growth and spiritual growth are both important.

Church Management Software
Remote access to the church database can be a lifesaver for today’s mobile society. In addition, savvy church leaders are interested in church management software that offers the most flexibility and capability for managing groups, volunteers, attendance, and more.

Finances & Fundraising
Church giving is a critical part of Christian discipleship. Financial concerns, budgeting, tithing, and offerings are all important parts of church life.

Leadership

Leading from the Lions' Den
While most new leadership books proudly promote themselves as the antidote to previous thinking, Leading from the Lions' Den takes pride in drawing its wisdom from ideas that have been available for a very long time in the unchanging Word of God. Here, author Tom R. Harper expounds upon one surprising principle from each of the Bible's sixty-six books. Each concept goes toward explaining human nature, which, when understood, is the foundation of business success.

Outreach

Personnel & HR
Finding a new hire for a church from among a pool of job applicants involves resumes and background checks, but it also requires conversations to determine a good spiritual fit and shared vision for a church.

Preaching

Research

Volunteers
Serving Christ means serving others. Volunteers are the heart of ministry in any church and church leaders who understand their value want to know more about recruiting, keeping and rewarding these servants.

Web Design & Tools
A church Web site is often the first impression a church gives to potential visitors. The Internet can also be an important part of church life—in group management, sermon podcasts, blogging, social networking, program promotions and more.
