9780687332243: The Toxic Congregation: How to Heal the Soul of Your Church

This book offers lifelines for pastors serving toxic and dysfunctional congregations.

A culture of triage engulfs mainstream religion in America. More and more churches are either toxic or dysfunctional. These churches contribute to the chronic decline of membership and burnout of clergy. Such churches cannot be "fixed" by even sincere or competent pastors without listening to God's guidance, insightful diagnosis, healing and conversion, revision, and supportive attention. Pastors did not sign on for this kind of ministry, but growing numbers find themselves in the throes of a life and death struggle for the soul of their church. This book will offer the vision, dynamics, and programming necessary for regenerating impaired congregations.
