Making Church Mergers WorkBook - 2012
"Thousands of Protestant churches are perplexed by plateaued or declining attendance, while other congregations nearby thrive. Is there a way for them to combine forces, drawing on both their strengths, in order to increase their missional impact? Church merger consultant Jim Tomberlin (with co-writer Warren Bird) makes the case that mergers today work best not with two struggling churches but with a vital, momentum-filled lead church partnering with a joining church. In this practical, example-filled, hands-on guide for church leaders at all levels, they enable those contemplating mergers to understand the issues, avoid landmines, and develop strategies for success"-- Provided by publisher.
