Through extensive research, Dr. John Kaiser shares the best practices of ten successful congregations. Focusing explicitly on decision-making rather than planning, structure, relationships, or any other host of factors, Fish or Cut Bait outlines how these congregations’ boards/leaders provide both accountability and support for pastors.

These congregations have learned how to face critical choices and by following their example, leadership teams organized with purpose will inspire churches to pursue spiritual renewal and expanded ministry.
