Every week, more and more people walk away from the church-not because they don't believe but because church has become irrelevant to their lives. Not God but church.
In Change Your Church for Good, Pastor Brad Powell rekindles hope for the future. He provides essential tools to shake up a stagnant body of believers and infuse it with love, outreach, cultural relevance, and a renewed relationship with God. Drawing on first-hand experience with the church at NorthRidge, where has served as Senior Pastor since 1990, Brad relays the trials and ultimately the triumph of restoring life and joy to a church that was dying.
If you are a leader seeking a blueprint for change-or a member praying for a miracle-this living example can serve as a springboard for your church. Transitioning NorthRidge Church into a thriving congregation, recently named the Midwest's "Fastest Growing Church" and "One of the Top 50 Most Influential Churches," was hard work but eternally worth it. Though once irrelevant and dying, this church is now reaching thousands of people for Christ and providing the hope of renewal to churches around the world.
All believers can take the challenge to get the church working right. When we do, the church will become what we long for and what God has always intended her to be . . . "the hope of the world."
