A practical guide to growing your parish that focuses on the congregants and community.

In this valuable church leadership resource, Kevin Martin examines the five aspects of congregational life that are key to the development and growth of a strong congregation.

    •Build the team

    •Pay attention to generations

    •Tend the two doors

    •Keep healthy

    •Raise the stewardship level

Martin takes the reader on the steps necessary to address each of these keys, whether your church is small and focused on growing or large and concerned with community and retention.
