Growing Healthy Churches

Healthy Churches, Led by Healthy Leaders, Changing the World

Rev. Gilbert Foster | Director of Recruitment

 

I believe in the power of reading because I’ve witnessed it first hand.

Let me tell you about a (sadly passed away) good friend called Rusty.

Rusty was that difficult Dutch Reformed naysayer when I reached Reedley, CA. I was warned that Rusty would be against everything. History seemed to agree. At most church meetings the loudest disagreeing voice was normally Rusty’s.  But, a year before I got there things were beginning to change in Rusty.

The reason  – guided by God’s Spirit – included a book Rusty had read. It was called An Unstoppable Force: Daring to Become the Church God Had in Mind @ Erwin Raphael McManus. (Published 2001 and now newly reprinted.) I’m unsure how this book got into Rusty’s hands but it stirred him.   Read more!

Another motion churches are often use, or should be using, is one for revision made to your by-laws.  Here is a link to that motion. Sample By-Laws Revision Motion
