Making Your Church a Place to Serve
The statistics are staggering. Thom Rainer in his book High Expectations found that if members of a church only attend worship services, only 16% will still be attending in five years. If however they become an active part of a Sunday School, that percentage goes up to 83%.
Southeast Christian Church does not claim to have all the answers, and this is not a magic book of formulas, plans, programs, or gimmicks. Rather it defines a process toward inviting people to an intimate relationship with God.
Don Waddell's book Making Your Church a Place to Serve describes the process of fully assimilating new members into your congregation so they become contributing members instead of spectators.
Making Your Church A Place to Serve has 16 chapters and 160 pages.
