Can an ordinary church become an uncommonly healthy church? Absolutely. But it won't happen automatically. Many average, ordinary churches allow their health to deteriorate to the point that they no longer have the heart to grow strong again. How do some churches fend off this heart deterioration to become uncommonly healthy churches? Professor and church growth consultant Bob Whitesel set out to answer just that question: How can a church strengthen its heart, and what are healthy churches doing differently to remain vibrant, flexible, and healthy as their culture and community changes around them? After two years of research with churches that have not only survived but thrived, The Healthy Church is Dr. Whitesel's answer to that question. In addition to practical, biblical teaching based on the latest research, Whitesel offers seven exercises to help strengthen your church's heart. Questions for personal or group study are also included.

Through steadfast diligence and unwavering faith, God’s mission can and will be fulfilled. Nakia Melecio shares the vision of how to build a legacy and ultimately claim the victory—methodically, effectively, spiritually, and graciously. Publisher:

We've entitled this book "You Can Coach" because we believe that coaching is more about passing on what you've lived and holding others accountable in the process. Coaching doesn't require a higher degree, special talent, unique personality, or a particular spiritual gift. We believe, in fact, that God wants coaching to become a movement. We long to see the day in which every pastor has a coach and in turn is coaching someone else. In this book, you'll hear three coaches who have successfully coached pastors for many years. They will share their history, dreams, principles, and what God is doing through coaching. Our hope is that you'll be both inspired and resourced to continue your own coaching ministry in the years to come.
