book of the week
Gary McIntosh has written a provocative little book titled, “One size doesn’t fit all”. It’s a book that looks at the different dynamics of churches, whatever the size. Too often we attempt to super-impose the structures and systems of a larger church onto a smaller church without taking into consideration the unique dynamics of each local church. This book has a fantastic summary chart of the authors insight into church life and I’ve recently been able to take my staff through the process of evaluating where we are at. A great read for pastors and those leaders interested in church growth and health dynamics.
