|Beyond the Good Samaritan, Ann Morisy
Morisy has helped churches to reinvent themselves by serving community needs. She says churches just need to be prepared to radically adjust their priorities and use skills they often already have. Through community ministry Christians can express their discipleship, enhance pastoral care (not just internally), learn from those in need, work across denominations, go `beyond the good Samaritan’ in fighting injustice, and bring positive changes to society. The book explores the prayer, teamwork, coordination, dialogue and humility necessary for community ministry. It is a helpful framework for emerging churches who want to be serious about their missional responsibility and engage with community needs.

In this remarkable book, Hugh Halter and Matt Smay, two missional leaders and church planters, outline an innovative model for creating thriving grass-roots faith communities.
|How to Multiply Your Church, Ralph Moore

How to Multiply Your Church is the next leap forward for those who long to see God’s kingdom increase.
