NOW WITH UPDATED AND EXPANDED MATERIAL! TWELVE KEYS TO AN EFFECTIVE CHURCH: Strong, Healthy Congregations Living in the Grace of God, 2nd Edition (Jossey-Bass, a Wiley imprint; January 2009; $22.95; Hardcover; ISBN: 978-0-470-55929-1) adds fresh insight to one of the most authoritative strategic resources for church leaders to date. For more than a decade, author Kennon L. Callahan’s groundbreaking study of the key ingredients that make up successful churches has formed the basis for many church renewal programs. Clergy and lay leaders alike cling to its teachings on how to understand strategic long-range planning and incorporate the twelve keys of effectiveness in the life of their churches. Being able to develop concrete, missional objectives, offer dynamic worship, exhibit streamlined structure and decision-making, provide adequate space and facilities, and have solid financial resources are just of Callahan’s keys to church health.
NEW SUGGESTIONS FOR DEVELOPING CHURCH STRENGTH, GRACE, AND GROWTH! The second edition expands upon the foundational principles of the first by providing new information on the quality of strong and healthy congregations in the 21st century. In addition, a clear theology of grace is added as an essential element of effective churches, as well as an emphasis on missional growth. The updated text now also includes a planning workbook for church leaders and points to additional updates in the separate texts, The Twelve Keys Bible Study ($12.95; Paper; ISBN: 978-0-470-55916-1) which illustrates how the key ingredients of successful churches are tied to scripture, and The Twelve Key Leader’s Guide ( $22.95; Hardcover; ISBN: 978-0-470-55928-4) which provides suggestions on how to shape congregational dynamic and plan for future growth.
