Sharing buildings with another ministry allows church members to engage other cultures, see a young ministry develop and thrive, and practice good stewardship. But these arrangements present unique challenges, too. Utility, maintenance, and renovation costs must be fairly divided. Personality differences arise and communication barriers may emerge, particularly with perceptions of turf and identity. 'Sharing Your Church Building' is a one-of-a-kind resource that will help you navigate these often unfamiliar waters and avoid potential pitfalls. It offers management insights, specific problem-solving guidelines, and strategies for preparing a congregation to share its facilities--either as a host or as a guest. It will help with establishing healthy boundaries that allow all the ministries in the building to flourish. I strongly urge every pastor and church leader considering sharing their church buildings to read this excellent book at the start of the process. Each hour spent with this book, I can assure you, will save you countless hours of 'I wish we had done such and such.' --Dr. Gary G. Cohen, professor, Trinity International University of South Florida A tremendously helpful resource filled with practical ideas on how to maximize church facilities for the work of the kingdom. --Robert E. Coleman, author; Distinguished Professor of Discipleshipi and Evangelism, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Ralph Curtin has proven that you can't out-give God. His generosity in sharing his church building has given birth to one of the strongest ethnic churches in America today. --Dan Southerland, author; pastor and teacher, Flamingo Road Church, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Ralph D. Curtin has taught at Trinity College and the Moody Bible Institute External Studies program and has served as pastor at North Pompano Baptist Church in Pompano Beach, Florida. He is also the author of 'Ancient Lights'.
