Full Product Description

Do you love your church and want to see it thrive? Are you keen to learn from someone whose own church has grown and started others too? Are you ready for the downsides as well as the inevitable joys?

Ray Evans takes us on an interesting and exciting journey. He looks at the barriers to growth, as well as the hurdles of reorganization and structural changes that growing churches face. His findings are anchored in the Bible and the real world which we all inhabit.

"Many have learned how to lead what they have," says Ray, "but they don't know how to take it forward. You don't see the glass ceilings until you crash into them, and the splinters bring pain everywhere."

In Ray, you will find a humble, wise and warm-hearted guide. This book will not only equip your church to grow, but will help prevent unnecessary disasters.

Ready, Steady, Grow by Dr Ray Evans was published by IVP in April 2014 and is our 4499th best seller. The ISBN for Ready, Steady, Grow is 9781783591138.

A:Hi, David. Thanks for your question about 'Ready, Steady, Grow'. Ray Evans is one of the leaders of Grace Community Church in Kempston where he's been for more than 30 years. His book is based on the British experience of church and is commended by other leaders of UK churches with a concern for reaching the unchurched of today's Britain. Yours, Les

"As Ray talks about the problems that growing churches face I felt like he had been secretly spying on our leaders meetings! He gets it exactly right. As the long time minister of a growing church Ray has spotted accurately the problems that assail churches which grow to an awkward size and what makes them stall. With biblical wisdom and pithy insights from his own experience and plenty of practical advice that is driven and rooted in grace of Jesus, Ray suggests an actual system that you can use to plan for and navigate your church growing. My guess is that any leader of a church which is growing or wants to grow will think Ray has written this book for their exact problems." - Maurice McCracken, leader of Christ Church Liverpool since it began 10 years ago.

"Ray Evans rescues the issue of church growth from the 1980s and puts it firmly on the agenda of the third millennium church! It is biblical and practical, with lots of helpful insights for churches of all sizes. All readers interested in seeing gospel growth in their communities should read this book." - Stephen Gaukroger, Director of Clarion Trust International and author.
