You’ve probably noticed …
Churches aren’t growing.
Young adults are walking away.
Volunteers are hard to recruit.
Leaders are burning out.
And the culture is changing faster than ever before.

There’s no doubt the church is in a moment in history for which few church leaders are prepared.

You can look for answers, but the right response depends on having the right conversation.

In Lasting Impact, Carey Nieuwhof leads you and your team through seven conversations that will help your church grow and have a lasting impact.

What if …
Having the right conversations could change your trajectory?
There is more hope than you realized?
The potential to grow is greater than the potential to decline?
Your community is waiting for a church to offer the hope they’re looking for?
Your best days as a church are ahead of you?

Maybe the future belongs to the churches that are willing to have the most honest conversations at a critical time. That’s what this book is designed to facilitate.

“Carey has become one of the most prominent and needed voices in church leadership today. I think the reason we read and listen to him so much is he is balanced, wise, and incredibly practical. This is not just another book—here is one you can read quickly, but immediately begin to implement and grow a stronger church. Thanks again, Carey! You’re making a difference.”

Ron Edmondson, blogger and senior pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church
