There's no denying that healthier, happier churches have nearly everyone involved in some form of ministry. Alan Nelson, former executive editor of REV! Magazine, guides your congregation to discover, develop, and deploy their gifts in service--and help your entire church reach its full potential. Explore practical way to move your church from a pastor-centric model to one that maximizes its volunteers, staff, and everyone in your church. Includes a variety of "best practices" from interviews with churches that have released their pastors from "doing it all" -- and successfully turned the way they do ministry upside-down.Nelson, Alan E. is the author of 'Me to We: A Pastor's Discovery of the Power of Partnership', published 2007 under ISBN 9780764434860 and ISBN 0764434861.
