Breakthrough to Creative Change in Communities of Faith

Couverture
iUniverse, 2002 - 276 pages
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.
