Igniting the Signal Fire for the Spiritually Dissatisfied

Be the first to review this product

Format: Paperback

Availability: In stock


Spent Matches explores the possibility that a few small paradigm shifts within the church might make the difference between extinction and effectiveness. In fact, taking a clue from the automobile industry, the church might be able to not only halt the rapid decay in attendance but also become an effective tool in achieving Jesus' final command. For instance, the Hybrid car has become the answer to Detroit's environmental and oil crisis issues. Finding the synergy between two technologies, gas and electric has created a new day for the auto industry. Likewise, Spent Matchesexplores how the church can find synergy between two seemingly competing thoughts: an invitation to come and a command to go. The Hybrid metaphor brings energy to the church's mission and an explanation to the age-old argument of Missional versus Attractional methods.

Features include: 

  • Innovative ideas for growing the church
  • Methods to reach those who may never have attended church
  • Scripture passages that touch on the subject of church growth
