For the Fearless Church
Sue Nilson Kibbey follows up the Abingdon Press leadership classic, Ultimately Responsible, with her latest experience-based research about how your congregation can make the shift from plateau or even decline – to opening the flood gates of spiritual upsurge. This resource is a practical “how-to” guide for pastors and church leaders who dream about releasing holy momentum in their current setting.
Whatever your church’s history, setting or mission field, you can set the stage to unleash the floodgates of a Breakthrough Prayer Initiative, learn the skills of making an urgent case for change, shift your church’s culture to “ubiquitous discipleship,” identify and deploy new leaders and other key crucial catalysts. All of these have the potential to transform your congregation into a fearless, Spirit-driven church that will make new spiritual history for Christ in your own mission field and beyond.
What People Are Saying
“Nearly every faith community must reinvent itself every five to seven years. But few leaders have the skills to lead transformational change. Flood Gates trains clergy and lay leaders to unleash positive change, vitality, and growth; this is the most successful model of its type I have encountered in forty years of ministry. Kibbey’s insightfulness and her prayerful soul are on full display in this volume. I recommend it to anyone seeking to courageously lead a ministry or congregation into the future with hope.”
“Spend enough time in ministry and you’ll eventually battle complacency. Whether your congregation’s growth has plateaued, or is declining, it takes energy and courage to shake things up, and it helps to have solid advice. In Flood Gates: Holy Momentum for a Fearless Church, Sue Nilson Kibbey draws upon her decades of experience growing congregations and offers eight choices you can immediately make to overcome resistance and jump start growth in your own ministry setting.”
