Bestselling author Steve Sjogren untangles the complex jumble commonly known as greatness in today's mega church, mega everything world. As a successful pastor, he launched the servant evangelism movement, but along the way he discovered that significance was not where or what he thought it would be. Now, in a very practical book, he focuses on genuine greatness. Is it the size of the sanctuary? The number of new believers baptized each year? The youth attendance? The quantity of best selling books the pastor has written? The list of television shows, radio shows or podcasts the pastors appears on? Or is it something more? What is the buzz on good churches that become great in God's eyes? Sjogren argues that greatness is not a point at which you arrive; rather, it is an ongoing process of worshipping, serving and living in God's presence. It not a slick program; rather, it is a family, a hospital, an army and a school. When God is a present, His people are empowered. When God empowers

- Publisher Pastor Steve Sjogren launched the servant evangelism movement-a movement that fueled the growth of his church in Cincinnati from a handful of people to 6,000 in 15 years. But along the way, Steve began to reevaluate the common assumption that a bigger church is necessarily a better church. In Making a Good Church Great, Steve shares what he has observed in more than 30 years as a church planter and coach: that a church's greatness has less to do with thousands in weekly attendance, the size of the sanctuary or the number of books the pastor has published. Instead, greatness is an ongoing process that is moved by the presence of God among His people. This book is an invitation to your community of faith to uncover its true and authentic greatness. There are 13 characteristics of a great church, including upward, outward, safe, fun, inclusive and generous, and Steve offers practical steps for your church, in its one-of-a-kind way, to foster each of these qualities. Instead of making your church more like someone else's, let the presence of God make your church the greatest church that only it can be!
