Open the floodgates to mission-worthy change in your congregation, creating a spiritual force that moves through your entire community.

Sue Nilson Kibbey follows up the Abingdon Press leadership classic, Ultimately Responsible, with her latest experience-based research about how your congregation can make the shift from plateau or even decline – to opening the flood gates of spiritual upsurge.  This resource is a practical “how-to” guide for pastors and church leaders who dream about releasing holy momentum in their current setting.

Whatever your church’s history, setting or mission field, you can set the stage to unleash the floodgates of a Breakthrough Prayer Initiative, learn the skills of making an urgent case for change, shift your church’s culture to “ubiquitous discipleship,” identify and deploy new leaders and other key crucial catalysts. All of these have the potential to transform your congregation into a fearless, Spirit-driven church that will make new spiritual history for Christ in your own mission field and beyond.
