I loved the heart behind this book. The goal of continuing to grow and being willing to follow God's leading in your church is worthy of commendation. However, that this church was not guided by scripture in there changes in any way deemed worthy of mentioning is a problem that is hard to ignore.

I felt like I was reading my own biography!

Started this book at 10:30, thinking I'd read just the first chapter before bed, and finished it at 12:45.

Yeah, it's another megachurch story, but if you can get past that, the principles still can apply to any church that is seeking to discover or rediscover its vision. Comes with copies of the actual resources they used and timelines, all really helpful. There was brutal honesty in the book as well, which is great for all of us who know there is no perfect church and sin finds its way into every church.

I loved the author's honesty regarding the struggles their church faced, the inside look at the staff's struggles and they way they continue to innovate despite the criticism of folks that aren't doing squat other than criticize and judge. A lot of concrete, helpful insights and tools. Excellent book!

I appreciated the candid approach of the author...this was an easy read that identified the pitfalls and triumphs experienced in church growth...I enjoyed getting an inside look at the beginning of their church and their efforts to continue re-inventing themselves over the years to make the biggest impact.

I found this book very honest about the ups-and-downs of ministry. But it is does not reflect a biblical philosophy of ministry.

I enjoyed the beginning and end...not so much the middle.
