Strategies for Change argues that church growth techniques and measurements are only symptomatic. Change is the larger issue in any institution.
This book is the fruit of Lyle E. Schaller's popular week-long workshops on planned change.
The author begins by focusing on the institutional context for change. Is your church a high-commitment covenant community or a voluntary association? Where are the sources of authority for making changes? What kinds of leaders can best make changes? The book concludes with a checklist of strategies and tactics for making changes.
