Dr. Thom S. Rainer's experiences as a pastor, seminary professor, denominational leader, and researcher have been eclipsed by his role as a coach and shepherd to pastors around the country.
Whether it is through the daily engagement he has with pastors through his online platforms or the resources he has published, Dr. Rainer wants to help you grow a healthy church. Now, for the first time, four of the books that will help you grow your church and keep it healthy are available together with free shipping.
1. Autopsy of a Deceased Church
No one wants to see a church die. And yet, far too many churches are dying. For more than twenty-five years, Dr. Thom S. Rainer has helped churches grow, reverse the trends of decline, and has autopsied those that have died.
From this experience, he has discovered twelve consistent themes among those churches that have died. Yet, it's not gloom and doom because from those twelve themes, lessons on how to keep your church alive have emerged.
2. Who Moved My Pulpit?
Who Moved My Pulpit? may not be the exact question you're asking. But you're certainly asking questions about change in the churchwhere it's coming from, why it's happening, and how you're supposed to hang on and follow God through iteven get out ahead of it so your church is faithfully meeting its timeless calling and serving the new opportunities of this age.
Based on conversations with thousands of pastors, combined with on-the-ground research from more than 50,000 churches, Thom S. Rainer shares an eight-stage roadmap to leading change in your church. Not by changing doctrine. Not by changing biblical foundations. But by changing methodologies and approaches for reaching a rapidly changing culture.
3. Simple Chruch
Simple Church guides Christians back to the simple gospel-sharing methods of Jesus. No bells or whistles required. With insights based on case studies of 400 American churches, Thom S. Rainer and Eric Geiger prove the disciple-making process is often too complex.
Simple churches thrive by taking four ideas to heart: Clarity. Movement. Alignment. Focus. Simple Church examines each idea, clearly showing why it is time to simplify.
4. The Millennials
At more than 78 million strong, the Millennialsthose born between 1980 and 2000have surpassed the Boomers as the larger and more influential generation in America. Now, as its members begin to reach adulthood, where the traits of a generation really take shape, Thom Rainer and his son Jess (a Millennial born in 1985) present the first major investigative work on Millennials from a Christian worldview perspective.
The Millennials is based on 1200 interviews with its namesakes that aim to better understand them personally, professionally, and spiritually. Chapters report intriguing how-and-why findings on family matters (they are closer-knit than previous generations), their desire for diversity (consider the wave of mixed race and ethnic adoptions), Millennials and the new workplace, their attitude toward money, the media, the environment, and perhaps most tellingly, religion.
