Longwood, FL (PRWEB) December 31, 2009
A vast majority of all Christian churches are declining or just maintaining the status quo. Thousands of church growth books have been written addressing this subject, but Xulon Press author Dr. Robert A. Young's latest endeavor, How to Lead a Church to Reach People and Grow - Combining Basic Growth and Administrative Principles ($17.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-857-8), is unique in that it presents the necessary preparation a church must make to reach new people, but also gives the church growth techniques and principles that have worked in other churches. This practical guide will resonate with readers who want their churches to function efficiently and effectively, and reach people for Christ.
"With a majority of all Christian churches declining amid growing population, this book offers a much-needed answer to the problem," the author says. "It addresses almost every area of church life and offers hundreds of ideas and suggestions to put a church back on the path to accomplishing its purpose. If the 15 steps are followed in the correct order, the church can be assured of growth and reaching new people."
Young has served 50 years in churches and as a consultant in the areas of church growth and administration. He is currently president of Samuelite Corp., Church Outreach and Consulting and has previously written a book titled The Development of a Church Manual of Administrative Policies. It is his hope this book will further his work of helping churches accomplish their purpose--reaching people for Christ.
Dr. Robert A. Young currently resides in Jefferson City, Tennessee.
