Description


In his book Kicking Habits: Welcome Relief for Addicted Churches, Thomas Bandy provided the "big picture" of the five stages of congregational renewal and transformation. Similarly, in Growing Spiritual Redwoods, Bandy and Bill Easum provided new metaphors for change to help congregations break out of outmoded attitudes and assumptions, and described the nature of spiritual leadership necessary to grow spiritual giants that would change the face of the cultural forest. The purpose of Moving Off the Map: A Field Guide to Changing the Congregation is to answer these questions. Here are powerful processes and tools to help congregations identify their strengths, weaknesses, and addictions. These processes can help a congregation shift attitudes, deepen spiritual awareness, received Biblical visions, and shape ministries for the future.
