Publisher's Summary

How can I help my church stay focused on its purpose? What would a culture of generosity look like for my church? What part does rest play in a healthy church?
Whether you are a pastor, a volunteer, or a church member, you want your church to grow well. After all, there’s no better place to experience God than in the loving, healthy community of a church. But what does an effective church look like? Is it possible to grow and be healthy at the same time?
Pastor Robert Morris has experienced firsthand the spiritual and relational excitement of a growing, dynamic church. In The Blessed Church, Pastor Morris brings you practical wisdom for cultivating real growth by nurturing true and Biblical health in your spiritual community.
"How has your church remained so healthy while growing so quickly?"
Robert Morris gets this question a lot. In other words, people want to know: "What’s your secret?"
In The Blessed Church: The Simple Secret to Growing the Church You Love, Pastor Robert Morris unfolds why Gateway Church in suburban Dallas-Fort Worth is one of America’s fastest-growing, spiritually enriching local churches - and still one of its healthiest. Written for both church leaders and lay people, The Blessed Church looks at the qualities that make church "work" in the 21st century and how that can enrich your church - whatever its size or vision.
With the humor and powerful stories he’s known for, Morris shows how every component of your church - including mission, church government, teaching, worship, small groups, giving, and outreach - can receive God’s richest blessings. Rather than bemoaning the problems of the contemporary evangelical church, The Blessed Church celebrates the expanding role of the body of Christ in the lives of individuals - starting right where you and your church are today.

Very Beneficial

This book is an excellent too for expanding the idea of a Blessed Church. Robert is very open about the success and trials growing churches face. More important he provides the why behind what they do.
