In this valuable church leadership resource, Kevin Martin examines the five aspects of congregational life that are key to the development and growth of a strong congregation. Based on the author's popular church growth seminar, The Five Critical Systems, the five keys to congregational growth are:

  • Build the Team
  • Keep Healthy
  • Pay Attention to Generations
  • Open the Front Door, Close the Back Door (keep your original members as you gain new members)
  • Raise the Stewardship Level 

Five Keys for Church Leaders distinguishes itself from other such resources with a focus on the "systems" of congregational life rather than the "programs" of congregational life.

Kevin Martin is a well-known preacher, teacher, author and consultant throughout the Episcopal community. The founder and executive director of Vital Church Ministries, he has served as Canon for Congregational Development in the Diocese of Texas for nine years. Prior to that, he was the rector for three congregations, was a hospital chaplain, and led the Leadership Training Institute in Evergreen, Colorado where he worked extensively in planning and executing national and regional conferences.
