April 16, 2019 (Nashville TN)—Abingdon Press announced today the release of 4D Impact: Smash Barriers Like a Smart Church by Olu Brown, Founding Pastor of Atlanta’s Impact Church, one of the fastest growing United Methodist congregations in the United States.

4D Impact takes a critical and inspirational look at four aspects of twenty-first-century ministry and church vitality: Technology, Hospitality, Worship, and Systems. Each of these aspects is key for developing vital churches and healthy church leaders.

Olu Brown shares real life lessonsincluding mistakes—from the 11-year journey of Impact Church, which is currently #5 out of the 100 fastest growing United Methodist congregations in the United States. He also offers examples from other churches, organizations, and businesses to inform, equip, and inspire the reader.

4D Impact offers:

  • a diagnostic tool in each chapter to determine the current health and status of the reader’s church,
  • real time inspiration from practitioners who are experiencing health and growth,
  • guidance for readers to discern their level of fitness for their church assignment—is the leader/reader well-matched, or mismatched?, and
  • guidance for readers to determine if their church has reached a point of irreversible decline.

Abingdon Press titles include a wide array of quality Bibles, Bible studies, small group studies, Christian living, devotional, academic, professional, and reference books published each year to enrich faith communities across the globe.
