BUILDING A CHURCH TO LAST tells the remarkable story of the phenomenal growth and transformation that occurred at a 250 year old mainline congregation located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina after its senior pastor and his rag-tag army of believers implemented a first century worship and leadership model. BUILDING A CHURCH TO LAST describes a proven method for planting new churches and for re-planting existing ones, especially those within mainline denominations. BUILDING A CHURCH TO LAST is a God story-a beautiful example of what can happen when the Lord grabs hold of a small congregation and turns it on its head. Dr. Luis Palau, Luis Palau Association, Portland, Oregon With sober precision, Ross Lindsay unfolds the narrative, and all who long for God to show his hand more widely in our midst today will find this book an absorbing page-turner. Dr. J. I. PACKER, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada My sincere belief is that the first century worship and leadership model expounded upon in this book can enable any local congregation to experience the many blessings that All Saints Pawleys has.
