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?

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.

    Practical Stuff for Pastors: Taking Care of Business
    $6.99
    Most pastors don’t go into ministry because they love risk management and balancing budgets and writing human resource policies. And yet each of these things, plus more, is part of a pastor’s day-to-day life while leading a church. Neglecting these routine tasks can lead a church into troubled waters, but dealing with them head-on frees up a pastor’s time and energy do what he/she really enjoys: spiritual shepherding.

    Taking Care of Business helps pastors plan for, implement and delegate the administrative responsibilities of running a church, including:
  • Creating and Managing Budgets
  • Safety and Risk Management
  • Day-to-Day Operations

    By Rick Bundschuh

    Make EVERY sermon memorable!
    Here'’s how...

    Are you hungry for Sunday messages to be memorable, meaningful, and move listeners closer to God?

    So why are so many messages forgettable?

    Pastor and author Rick Bundschuh asked the same question— and launched into a journey of finding new ways to connect his church audience with the life-changing truths of the Bible. He preached participatory sermons. Wove experiences into messages. Invited congregational conversation as part of the Sunday morning experience.

    The results? Astounding —for Bundschuh and his church.

    You know Jesus, think he's a nice guy, and you never forget his birthday.

You want to encounter Jesus—and know him for who he really is. You want to experience Jesus' love, not just admire him. To become a follower, not just a fan.
