A comprehensive account of congregational life and leadership for those preparing for ministry, written by a recognized authority on congregational health and vitality.

The late twentieth century saw the rise of congregational studies, a discipline intended to help congregational leaders and members understand the dynamics of the churches to which they belong. Tom Bandy believes that, while congregational studies has offered helpful tools and guidance to many, it suffers from serious flaws, among them a focus on denominationally-credentialled leadership, and an over reliance on sociological approaches to congregational life at the expense of other perspectives.

In this new book Bandy offers a comprehensive guide to not only understanding the mission and ministry of congregations, but transforming them as well. Drawing on ancient wisdom and cutting-edge cultural phenomena, he guides the reader through the changes and opportunities that confront congregations in the pagan world of twenty-first century North America. Written for all who are preparing for congregational ministry, from seminarians to newly-called church staff members to church planters, the book includes dozens of helpful exercises and applications to assist the reader discover the heart and core mission of congregations.
