A Life-Changing Church in an Ever-Changing Culture
Today's church world is complex, with an array of church and leadership models that can cause confusion rather than bring clarity. It's no wonder that some leaders can lose sight of the church they is commissioned to build. Strategic Church will help pastors and leaders refocus on visioning and building a faith community that is biblically based and spiritually transformative, helping people become fruitful disciples of Christ. Readers will uncover principles from the church Jesus built and find out how to apply these strategies to their local context. Strategic Church offers road-tested tools and proven principles for building a life-changing church in a complex culture.
"In Strategic Church, Frank Damazio has given an overall strategy for church building that can apply to the traditional church, the emergent church, or the small neighborhood church that has never grown. The great thing about this book is that it shows a pastor does not have to be a '10-talent guy' to lead a church that can be used greatly of God--he can use any pastor, anywhere, at any time, to make a significant influence in the lives of his followers. This is a great book coming from a great pastor and church revitalization authority."
Elmer L. Towns, cofounder and vice president, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia
"Strategic Church is the perfect book to help you think differently and gain a unique perspective on how you and your church can thrive by overcoming obstacles. This is not just another 'how to' book or a collection of abstract theories; these are solid principles Frank Damazio has lived out in his 30-plus years of ministry. These pages contain engaging analogies, dynamic truths, and proven strategies based on a firm foundation from the Word of God that will spur you and your church to more effectively build fruitful disciples of Christ and transform lives!"
Robert Morris, senior pastor, Gateway Church;
bestselling author, From Dream to Destiny and The God I Never Knew
"Frank Damazio has given a blueprint for building a ministry of integrity that can stand the test of time. These principles of structure and outreach can be applied to anyone's life, whether he or she is a new believer or an established church planter. Strategic Church is a daring challenge to the kingdom of God to do greater things in his name."
Matthew Barnett, pastor and cofounder, The Dream Center, Los Angeles, California
