Description:      Product Description
Recent talk and thinking about congregations concentrate on the fact that church attendance is on the decline. Book after book discusses methods of getting more people to attend worship services. But author Kirk Hadaway thinks an important part of the conversation is missing -- how can churches, in spite of the decline, remain engaged in the mission of transforming lives?

Behold, I Do a New Thing does not offer easy solutions but encourages readers to rethink the elements of church communities, including worship and leader models. Looking at churches in new ways and holding new expectations will allow church leadership to guide congregations in the journey where transformation and renewal is constant and embraced.

This is an invaluable book for pastors and lay leaders.
