Exodus of the Religious Dones (download)
$24.99
By Josh Packard, Ph.D.

The reality of the exodus from church is bigger than you feared...and starting much closer to home. That'’s what sociologist and author Josh Packard has confirmed in his just-released report, Exodus of the Religious Dones.

Packard'’s research confirms not only how many people have walked away from the church already, but how many are lined up to leave--—and why.

This groundbreaking study complements Packard'’s best-selling Church Refugees, rounding out Packard'’s in-depth profile of Religious Dones.

Church leaders will discover the true scope of the challenge facing local churches--—and the specific concerns prompting an ongoing exodus. With this information in hand, church leaders will know how to best slow the steady stream of church members inching toward the back door, and be equipped to better meet the needs of their congregations.

Practical Stuff for Pastors: Leading Change
$6.99
Ever tried to replace the organ with a keyboard? Change the service time by thirty minutes? Introduce a new ministry? Retire an old one?

Pastors learn quickly that change often meets resistance in church. Even small changes can be hard to make when church members are familiar with the usual way of doing things. But change is necessary as new visions arise and communities evolve.

Leading Change provides guidance for how to lead a church through both big and small changes, including:
  • When to Change
  • Communicating Vision
  • Responding to Resistance


  • After surveying hundreds of pastors, asking them what they wish they’d learned in seminary but didn’t, "practical stuff" was the overwhelming answer.

    Practical Stuff for Pastors is a series of how-to guides dedicated to topics like how to manage a team, keep a building running, defuse conflicts, and more.

    Full of tips, recommendations, and strategies to equip pastors for running a church on the days between Sundays, these handbooks are valuable tools pastors will reference again and again.
