From the Back Cover
'The Purpose Driven(R) Church has brought focus and direction to more pastors and church leaders than you can count. What a gift!'---John Ortberg, bestselling author Every church is driven by something. Tradition, finances, programs, personalities, events, seekers, and even buildings can each be the controlling force in a church. But Rick Warren believes that in order for a church to be healthy it must become a purpose-driven church, built around the five New Testament purposes given to the church by Jesus. 'The issue is church health, not church growth!' declares Warren. 'If your church is healthy, growth will occur naturally. Healthy, consistent growth is the result of balancing the five biblical purposes of the church.' Rick Warren shares a proven five-part strategy that will enable your church to grow * warmer through fellowship * deeper through discipleship * stronger through worship * broader through ministry * larger through evangelism The Purpose Driven(R) Church shifts the focus away from church building programs to emphasizing a people-building process. Warren says, 'If you will concentrate on building people, God will build the church.' --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Brilliant approach to bringing people into the church. Fabulous marketing approach and all round super business model. Sound strange? I bought this after hearing Dan Kennedy rave about how good a business book this was. It's a shame most churches in the UK aren't more focused on growing congregations, even as an atheist I can see the benefits for the wider community if they did.

I've found this book to be full of wisdom and clear about what a church needs to do. Some are worried that it's all about building a big church but Rick makes it clear it is the purpose of the church that he is discussing. Many of the ideas apply just as much to a small community church as a metropolitan mega church. But Rick does make it clear that there's no point in a community church aspiring to mega church status. That is why the leadership needs to be clear what the purpose of their church is.
