John Wesley's own strategies for reaching non-churched people.

Ever felt stuck in ways of doing church that produce less and less fruit each year? John Wesley sure did—until he stumbled on to seven ways to connect with non-churched people that ignited a revival. Discover how those seven methods of early Methodism, recast for the 21st century, can bring fresh faith to pre-Christian people and unleash a new wave of the Spirit in our day.  
Discussion guides in each chapter facilitate interaction for leadership teams and small groups, and offer practice for successful implementation.
