Whether you're a pastor, layleader, or person in the pew, The Irresistible Church: 12 Traits of a Church Heaven Applauds
will show you how your church can become one that God uses in incredible ways. Wayne Cordeiro lays out twelve practical steps to being a church that heaven applauds--including ways to encourage love for the community, develop a culture of serving, turn visitors into regular attenders, and much more.
Yet the focus, he says, is not on programs--it's on being a church that God can't help but bless. When a church hungers for the presence of God, promotes healthy relationships, and connects everything to a soul, it becomes a vibrant church that's irresistible to God--and to people. These are characteristics that any church can develop--no matter the size of the congregation or the budget--to become irresistible. The included study guide will help you apply these principles to your church.
After more than 25 years of ministry in Hawaii, Wayne Cordeiro knows what kind of church God blesses. In fact, New Hope, the Honolulu church he founded, is one of the nation's fastest growing churches.ISBN: 9781441232250
