Publisher's Summary

A newly updated and rebranded edition of The Deliberate Church

If churches are the dwelling place of God’s spirit, why are so many built around the strategies of man? Eager for church growth, leaders can be lured by entertaining new schemes, forgetting to keep doctrinal truth as their driving force. Churches must find a way out of the maze of programs and methods and humbly lean on the sufficiency of God’s word.

How to Build a Healthy Church, a revised and expanded edition of The Deliberate Church, challenges leaders to evaluate their motivations for ministry and provides practical examples of healthy, deliberate leadership. Written as a companion for Nine Marks of a Healthy Church, it covers important topics, including membership, worship, responsible evangelism, and church roles. This is more than a step-by-step plan to mimic; it’s a biblical blueprint for pastors, elders, and anyone committed to the church’s vitality.

Excellent resource. Very practical.

This book has a lot of the same information that is in most of the Nine Marks material. But this book does a wonderful job of explaining each topic in great detail.
