Many of the practical ideas reflect needs that many large churches will face, but not necessarily a smaller church that is just getting started. We are a medium sized church (around 300) that is working to move to the next level of attendance and ministry, etc. So it was still helpful to hear ideas of where we'd maybe like to be very far down the road. For a small church, the ideas could be very far off.
All in all, interesting & helpful read and a could place to start for those trying to grow their ministry.
I plan on using this book as a basic resource to guide my leadership of our First Impressions ministry teams. There are sections on print communications that will speak directly to some questions that our communications team is considering. There are a number of sections that will speak to our ushers and greeters.
The biggest asset of Waltz's work is that it is both inspirational and practical. It gives me more motivation to know that the small choices that we make from weekend to weekend have huge implications, while giving me a number of tools to help us do a better job of allowing people to worship in a comfortable, distraction-free environment. If we get this right, the outcome for the Kingdom will be awesome!!
Several copies were purchased and loaned to 8 members of the church who are among the "movers and shakers'. Written instructions were pasted inside the front cover to 'read this book in the next seven (7) days then pass it on to one of the names 'below' who has not had their name checked off.'
After all those on the list have read the book, the group has planned to meet to share the ideas that can be implemented in our church.
