The New Orleans Pastoral Summit united Protestant and Catholic clergy in an unprecedented mutual search for today's best ways to spread the Word. With churches as small as 60 members and as large as 10,000, these clergy shared their hands-on, ground-breaking strategies to revitalize both individuals and communities. Their presentations are collected here, as well as contact information for each presenter.
Dynamic from first page to last, this exciting new book shows how to --
-- create a warm, welcoming church environment.
-- transform ordinary church-goers into enthusiastic lay leaders.
-- successfully get members to tithe their time, talents, and money.
-- reach youth, the unchurched, and the marginalized.
