A Close Look at What It Takes to Create an Irresistible Church.
This isn't a book about how to make your church bigger. This is a book about how to make your church more appealing to the people who don’t usually—or have never—gone to church.
Deep and Wide provides church leaders with an in-depth look into North Point Community Church and its strategies, its goals, its methods, and its story. You'll learn how to create a church that unchurched people absolutely love to attend. Pastor Andy Stanley explains:
- His strategy for preaching and programming to both mature believers and skeptics.
- North Point's spiritual formation model: The Five Faith Catalysts.
- Three essential ingredients for creating irresistible environments.
- How to tackle the challenge of transitioning a local congregation.
Updated & Expanded edition includes discussion guide, church staff resources, and a Q&A with Andy!
"Andy Stanley is on the front lines of a major shift in how both Christians and non-Christians experience "church" in America. In Deep and Wide, Andy opens up his playbook for how North Point Community Church grew into one of the nation's most effective churches, openly shares their victories and failures, and shows you how to take your own church deeper in the Word and wider in appeal." —Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host.
