A New Generation Church is a church with attendees whose average age is at least as young as the average age of the community in which the church exists. Any church can become a New Generation Church that reaches and continues to reach the next generation. The Psalmist writes: We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders. (Psalm 78:4 NLT) No Christian would purposely hide the timeless truths of Christianity from the next generation. But often we do, not because of the substance of our church, but because of the approach of our church. For A New Generation is not about changing your church’s statement of faith or core beliefs. It is about evaluating and changing, as needed, your church’s programs, ministries and practices in order to more effectively connect with and stay connected with the next generation. Written for both church leaders and members, For a New Generation presents 5 practical strategies that will lay a foundation for a church to thrive for generations to come. It is based on the assumption that accepting the status quo is the greatest threat to your church’s core mission and, perhaps, to the long-term survival of your church.

While leading both church planting and church revitalization efforts, I found many more helpful resources for church planters than for leaders trying to turn a church around! This is especially true as it relates to messages designed to challenge and inspire churches in need of revitalization. Tom Cheyney and Larry Wynn have drawn from their passion and experience and given the church revitalizer a true gift in the pages of this book!Lee Kricher, Author, For a New Generation: A Practical Guide For Revitalizing Your Church Pastor New Generation ChurchPittsburg, PAThe impressive combination of Tom Cheyney and Larry Wynn have teamed up to address one of the most critical areas of Church Revitalization, that of preaching for revitalization. Both men have been working in the area of church planting and church revitalization for many years and have something very important to say in an area nearly bereft of coverage. If pastors are going to address church revitalization, it should begin with their most effective medium - their public proclamation. Cheyney and Wynn have produced an invaluable resource for revitalization leaders.Terry Rials, Church Revitalization Practioner & Leader of ChurchRevitalizer.comOklahoma City, OKIf I desire to read a "how to" book or a "help me" book, I want it to be written by a practitioner. That is exactly who Larry Wynn and Tom Cheyney are. They are leaders in their fields. Larry pastored one of the leading churches in America and he built it from scratch. Tom has led conferences and counseled many churches how to effectively revitalize a church. This is one book you do not want to tarry reading.

Synagogues should be effective and relevant centers of Jewish life but too often the focus is on programs not people, on revenue not relationships. The end result is frequently a corporate atmosphere where membership lacks commitment, core leadership and spiritual fulfillment. In this empowering, practical guide, Dr. Ron Wolfson shows you how to transform your synagogue congregation into a sacred community by focusing on strategies for successful change. Using a case-study format for creating an inviting spiritual center, Wolfson defines the welcoming congregation and the fundamental materials that are involved in building one. He addresses the services a welcoming congregation should provide, the themes the congregation should focus on, and the standards that a vital spiritual community should uphold. Tapping into his experiences as co-developer of Synagogue 2000, the transdenominational project designed to envision and implement the ideal synagogue of the spirit for the twenty-first century, Wolfson also provides essential problem-solving tools that you can use to alleviate roadblocks along the way.

Children’s ministry has the power to change the lives of kids and families. Unfortunately, it’s not always clear that the work a person does with kids is really making a lasting difference. Ask children’s ministry leaders and kid-influencers if they are making the impact on children’s lives as they had hoped and most likely the responses will be mixed. And for good reason. Research over the past decade has revealed an alarming lack of long-term growth in the faith community as children progress through student ministries into adulthood. Clearly, something needs to change. Relational Children’s Ministry seeks to reverse this trend by equipping children’s ministry leaders with practical tools to disrupt the status quo approach to discipleship with children and realign their ministries for greater long-term impact. Ministry leaders will: Learn how to relate intentionally to kids and families by putting five discipleship invitations modeled by Jesus into practice Explore practical approaches to realign their children’s ministry for a new trajectory by hitting three “reset buttons” to ensure long-term discipleship is embedded Encounter examples of disruptive disciple-makers in action and learn key principles that can be translated into their own ministry context Children’s ministry leaders will receive practical training to refocus their children’s ministry along with time-tested tools to personally recommit to lifelong discipleship. Kid-influencers can become a disciple-making community that redirects the current trajectory for this and future generations.

As a text for the study of Christian spirituality it explores a number of topics as context for the main argument.
