Publisher's Summary

Over the last 15 years, Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois, has experienced phenomenal growth. What began as a 100-member church meeting in a movie theater is now a major organization that attracts 15,000 worshippers every Sunday morning. In Rediscovering Church, senior pastor Bill Hybels and his wife Lynne tell the story of Willow Creek's beginnings, struggles, values, and philosophies, as well as the strategies that have made it a model for church growth. The Hybels offer a vision for what the church can be, focusing especially on community outreach and evangelism.

Faith & Trust

Through the hard times of building a church congregation, the Hybels still trusted God. This is a good book to read, if any pastors thinking of starting a new church.

Great overview of history/mission of Willow Creek

"Rediscovering Church" gave great insight into the history of Willow Creek Community Church. There are two different readers, and both are great and easy to listen to. The first part of the book is a history of Willow Creek Church (from Bill's wife's perspective), while the second part is more of the philosophy and practical application of some of the lessons learned. The only downside is that the book is a little older now and doesn't reflect the last few years.
