Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Discover the keys to transforming your world

In just twelve years, Sunday Adelaja built the largest evangelical church in Europe, a cross-cultural ministry with more than two million converts and 600 church plants worldwide. The Nigerian's self-taught and revolutionary methods of church ministry have made a dramatic impact on politics and culture in post-Christian Europe.

ChurchShift, based on his true story, gives you the keys to revolutionize your own life, faith, church, and community. Your view of God, your life, and your ministry will change as you discover how to:

* Believe Christ for supernatural growth in your life and ministries

* Activate and ignite the potential of your local church

* Transform your neighborhood, your city, and your nation by imposing kingdom principles on the culture around you

The Wall Street Journal calls him "a man with a mission!" Ukraine President Victor Yushenko states, "It was you who protected democracy in Ukraine." Kyiv Mayor Leonid Chernovetskiy said, "Through Pastor Sunday's endeavors, we have become a bold and fearless people." The Associated Press wrote, "The Embassy of God has ballooned... into this ex-Soviet republic's first true megachurch." The British Broadcasting Corporation reports, "Nothing like the Embassy of God has ever been seen before!"

Let this book inspire you to get busy with God's assignment for your life and ministry and enter His promised land for you!

One of the greatest Christian hero stories of the modern world.

I recommend that pastors and leaders of all kinds read ChurchShift.

I have heard and read a great deal about Pastor Sunday and about the work he is doing. All those who do great things go through attacks such as Pastor Sunday has endured.
--U.S. President Bill Clinton

Some are called to churches. Some are called to cities. Sunday Adelaja has a fresh word for the nations! His experience with the Lord, his compassion for people, and his commitment to the kingdom make Sunday Adelaja a world-class leader with a world-class vision to build a world-class army to change the world for Christ. This world-class book is a must for you today. Read and reap benefits for a lifetime.

About the Author

Sunday Adelaja is founder and senior pastor of The Embassy of the Blessed Kingdom of God for All Nations in Kiev, Ukraine. The phenomenon of his ministry is that he originates from Nigeria, Africa, and has been able to prove that cross-cultural ministry is possible in the 21st century. He pastors the largest church in Europe with over 25,000 members who are 90 percent white Europeans. The church grew from 7 people in 1994 to 20,000 in 2002 and has now planted more than 300 churches in 15 countries.

Format: Paperback
Having heard a lot about the author, a black African, being the pastor of the largest church in Europe(100,000 members in Ukraine with a make up that is 99% white Europeans) with two million new converts, 600 church plants in over 35 nations all within 12 years of the church existence, I was really excited to find this book and I was not disappointed. Every page of the book is an unveiling of the secrets behind this revolutionary church. The keys to having an impactful life and building a nation-changing church are practically uncovered in this book. It is a gold mine of life-changing truth. I recommend it to every Christian and Christian leader who want to leave the ordinary for the extraordinary in their lives and ministries.

Format: Paperback
For a while Ive been led by God to understand the mentality of pastors like Sunday and why theyve made such impact. Ive discovered that its the kingdom mentality that makes a difference. The author declares how Jesus spoke very little about the church and 90% on the kingdom.Its an eye opener to see how many churches only focus on "Building their church", when in fact ministries that God is empowering are focused on the The Kingdom in general. He states that CHURCH is our headquearters but that battles are not fought in headquartes, but on the field...the world is the field.LET ME ASSURE YOU:THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER BOOK ON EVANGELISM, BUT RATHER A POWERFUL BOOK FULL OF TEACHING ON WHAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD REALLY IS.This book will really broaden your concept and open your mind on how God intends to build his church. Other than Myles Munroe, Ive found very little on this subject. As a pastor, I recomend it to pastors and church leaders. A TRUE PARADIGM SHIFT!BUY IT, YOULL BE CHALLENGED.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Pastor Folahan Adefope on February 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
Living in a transient world with constantly changing value systems, norms, cultures and mind-sets, we often forget that the God we profess to serve and worship is a God of absolutes and immutability.
CHURCH SHIFT is a profound wake-up call to every Christian from the pulpit to the pew, reminding us that the message of the Lord Jesus was almost entirely about the Kingdom of God and not so much about the Church. This book is a sincere and passionate attempt to re-direct the focus of the Christian to those things which are of eternal value and significance - the principles contained in the Word of God and not religion or our particular expression of it.
Pastor Sunday in this book teaches that the world is subjected to futility so that we might set people free with the news and principles of God's kingdom. This is because we have all the answers and are indispensable to the health and well-being of the nations. The world badly needs us and simply cannot and should not do without us. WHAT AN AWESOME REVELATION OF TRUTH!!!
This Nigerian-born Pastor with a passion for the nation of Ukraine challenges and confronts the present mindset and preoccupation of the Church with itself, it's size, prosperity, image, membership dynamics, needs etc., calling for a revolutionary shift and re-focus back to the original purpose and great commission of God to impact people groups and nations and not just the Pastors and Church Members. This is the only means through which transformation can be brought to our nations.
THIS BOOK IS A MUST-READ FOR EVERY SERIOUS CHRISTIAN.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Dr. A. Fola-alade on January 31, 2008
Format: Paperback
Pastor Sunday Adelaja is not just a Pastor but a Liberator & Reformer.With this fresh, new & powerful book he puts a tool in every believers hand to enable us "discover our promised land", "take new territories for God" & "Impose the Kingdom of God on todays culture"
In this book he seeks to change the present mindset of the church being preoccupied with itself, its size, its image & needs and seeks to refocus it back to its original purpose.He says that "to complete the great commission we must impact nations & not just church members".
I was particularly challenged when he describes today's church members as God's workers in captivity."They are like prisoners & the church pastors are the wardens"
This book teaches us not on how to bring revival alone but revolution to cultures & transformation to our nations [...]

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dala Alphonso on February 9, 2008
Format: Paperback
There are only a handful of reformers on Earth today and Sunday Adelaja stands out in this unique group: not because he pastors the largest evangelical Church in Europe, planted over 600 Churches in 35 countries or that being Nigerian leads a congregation that is over 98% caucasian. The phenomenon that envelopes Pastor Sunday is his passion for the advancement of the Kingdom of God which triggered the transformation of an entire nation. The principles that have infused the Kingdom of God into every sphere of societal influence and brought a nation like Ukraine to its knees before God is not only relevant to the world today, but desperately needed in America. CHURCHSHIFT reveals the heart of God for the Earth and provides practical principles on how to change the culture and affect the nation. The true purpose of the Church is unveiled in this book and indeed the heart cry of Christ when He died on the cross for us. Every Christian (not just Pastors now) should buy, read, study, re-study, and implement the precepts preserved in the pages of CHURCHSHIFT!!!
