Annotation: ?The Purpose Driven? Church has brought focus and direction to more pastors and church leaders than you can count. What a gift!??John Ortberg, bestselling author
Every church is driven by something. Tradition, finances, programs, personalities, events, seekers, and even buildings can each be the controlling force in a church. But Rick Warren believes that in order for a church to be healthy it must become a purpose-driven church, built around the five New Testament purposes given to the church by Jesus.
?The issue is church health, not church growth!? declares Warren. ?If your church is healthy, growth will occur naturally. Healthy, consistent growth is the result of balancing the five biblical purposes of the church.?
Rick Warren shares a proven five-part strategy that will enable your church to grow
? warmer through fellowship
? deeper through discipleship
? stronger through worship
? broader through ministry
? larger through evangelism
The Purpose Driven? Church shifts the focus away from church building programs to emphasizing a people-building process. Warren says, ?If you will concentrate on building people, God will build
the church.?
