Dr. Mitchell offers a passionate plea challenging the church to get out of the bleachers and on to the playing field. Dr. Mitchell declares, "We can't affect the outcome of the game if we are not in the game." Pastor of a 1,000-member congregation in Ohio, Dr. Mitchell doesn't speak from lofty theory, but from years of measurable success in rescuing children from damaged homes and troubled schools....offering literacy programs, rehabilitation for former prisoners, job training for the homeless, adoptions services, unwed pregnancy counseling...and much more. She certainly has proved It Takes a Church to Raise a Village.

Today is the time for the Church to shine as never before -- to put away tasteless religious acts and become the salt of the earth. The village is crying, and the Church can no longer turn the deaf ear of immaturity. It's time to grow up and prepare to "raise" our "village" one family at a time.About the Author:
