Wills

Author     Wills, Dick, 1942-
Title     Waking to God’s dream : spiritual leadership and church renewal / Dick Wills
Published     Nashville : Abingdon Press, c1999
Description     112 p. ; 22 cm
Summary  Pastor Wills shares the spiritual disciplines and insights he believes account for transforming his congregation from a large church in decline to one growing and reaching out to its community in a variety of creative ministries. Detailing the steps and initiatives that led to this turnaround, Wills demonstrates how personal commitment on the part of the congregation’s leaders and ministers have been the key. Wills gives some excellent and detailed steps to church renewal when the congregation is infected by the vision of what God is doing in their midst.  Wills’ story is a powerful statement on seeking God’s will as a church body.  Additionally Wills’ slim volume packs a powerful message: the key to church renewal is spiritual leadership.   Unlike so many books of this nature, this provides very specific, straightforward steps to building spiritual leadership.
