Identifies the qualities of a congregation s distinct culture and how they can be used to enhance its work in the world
Every church has its own distinct culture. This book shows churches how to develop cultures in which they and their leaders can grow into a genuine maturity that makes them more authentic and unique, less dependent on someone else s programs, and less likely to duplicate what everyone else is doing. The authors emphasize the need for leaders to understand, grow, and express the ingredients of a church s special culture while reframing what it means to be a force for good in God s kingdom.
