Reality Check for the Church

Full Product Description

There are few aspects of church life more challenging or more important than an honest look at reality. Often churches attempt to set a vision and direction without first undertaking the foundational task of determining who they really are and what makes them unique from the other churches around them. Without that kind of clear picture any attempt to shape a vision will fail because it's built on a faulty foundation. Drawing on his experience as a pastor and international leader, Dr. Ron Johnston outlines five steps designed to help churches identify their own unique reality:Clearly Define Your Reality, Intentionally Grow Your Leadership, Enthusiastically Embrace Your Uniqueness, Carefully Rethink Your Mission, Expectantly Shape Your Vision. He then uses stories from his own pastoral and consulting experience to make these points practical. This book is written not by an expert in an ivory tower but by a fellow traveller who has experienced the frustrations and blessings of church life. If churches are looking for an easy three-step solution to all of their problems, this is not the book for them. But for those churches that are committed to the long-term task of building a solid vision for the future, Dr. Johnston has provided a practical guide for the journey. About the Author: Ron Johnston is president of Small Church Connections. Previously he served as Director of International Programs at International Teams Canada. Prior to that he was a pastor for twenty-three years with Brethren churches in Southern Ontario. He recently completed a DMin program at Acadia University, having written his thesis on the subject of evangelism in the small church. He brings this blend of practical experience, academic study, and international involvement to his current work with small churches around the world.
