The Five Star Church Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever wonder how a restaurant or hotel earns a five-star rating? Is it the people? The location? The service? In most cases, it is all of this and more. Why should your church be any different? The Five Star Church reveals how you can pursue Christian excellence and uphold the Lord's command to "honor one another above yourselves" (Romans 12:10). It contains tips, tools and the inspiration you need to build a top-quality church that people will flock to and participate in. Now matter how small your ministry or budget, God can use your church effectively to make everyone there feel welcome and cared for - the marks of a five-star church!

Synopsis:

Sunday School Teacher Elmer L. Towns and Pastor Stan Toler give us a visionary look at the Sunday School of the future-and definitely like what they see.  That's provided, of course, we begin today to build the Sunday Schools that will revitalize the Church and thereby ensure its long-term growth.  This companion to What Every Sunday School Teacher Should Know is a practical, exciting wake-up call for every pastor who has a nagging notion that the Sunday School program is not the dynamic catalyst for growth that it should be.
 

Synopsis:

How does a restaurant or hotel earn a five-star rating? Is it the people? The location? The service? The amenities? In most cases, it is all of this and more: an overall sense that the customer is to be valued, honored and treated well. Jesus' life was like that: a sacrificial offering of love for those He loved and cared about. In "The Five-Star Church", pastor/ how to transform your church based on Jesus' model of servant hood. With humor and fresh insight, they provide tangible steps on how to build a church whose number one goal is to serve God and others-the mark of a five-star church.
