It is possible for Communities of Faith to break through to creative change-if they are willing to learn how to get differences working together without a war. Proven practical tools that effect organizational rejuvenation, and a roadmap of change keeps congregations moving together in the same direction.
Author John E. Piper explores issues such as:
How to recognize controlling self-interests
How to identify hidden decision-makers
Church Chess-the win-lose turf game that everyone loses
Creating a complementary team where everyone wins
Learning to drive safely on the open roadmap of change
Most change efforts center on either people, processes, or structure. These tools bond together the varying perceptions, styles and interests, so that a congregation can get its organizational act together and maintain its integrity through future crises. In this way, congregations can shape change before it pushes them out of shape.
