What is your church like today? Maybe your congregation is experiencing wonderful energy and growth. Or perhaps, like many, it was established some time ago and is now experiencing a loss of activity and vitality. In this book E. Stanley Ott outlines twelve dynamic shifts in thinking and practice that can bring new vision and fresh energy to the life of local churches.^^Arguing that the crisis in the church today is due to a loss of personal spirituality and congregational vitality, Ott challenges pastors and church leaders to adjust the style of their ministries to attract new people while continuing to encourage current members. He examines the characteristics of the traditional church, extols the features of the new transformational church, and lays out inspiring yet practical proposals to help congregations make the transition from traditional to transformational.^^A must-read for pastors and all who share in the leadership of their church, Otts "Twelve Dynamic Shifts^ offers a welcome blueprint for building need-responsive, disciple-growing congregations full of life and vigor.^

That today's mainline churches are in crisis is apparent; a solution is less obvious. In this constructive new book E. Stanley Ott points a way ahead, describing twelve shifts in philosophy and practice that can help congregations build need-responsive, disciple-growing churches full of life and vigor.
Arguing that the weakness of the church today is a loss of personal spirituality and congregational vitality, Ott challenges local churches to discover how to adjust the style of their ministries to attract new people while encouraging current members. Ott examines the characteristics of "traditional" churches, extols the features of new, "transformational" churches, and lays out proposals to help established congregations make the transition.


Well balanced by an honest assessment of the church's present and a positive vision for its future, this book is must reading for pastors, church leaders, and members of every congregation.
