Clear plans for the daily tasks of effectively leading a congregation.

The joy of ministry is lost in the terror of being ill equipped for daily tasks. This book leads the way, providing clear plans for the daily tasks of effectively leading a congregation.

Make or Break Your Church in 365 Days helps pastors develop competency in the daily task of leading congregations by answering two fundamental questions:

  • What must be done in the first 365 days of a pastor’s tenure?
  • What is the optimal way to structure a daily work life to affect change in the first year and beyond?

These very specific tasks are the behaviors that demonstrate competency and lead to growing, effective churches.
