All churches, no matter the denomination, are faced with similar challenges: membership development, leadership development, communications strategy, spiritual development, young adult ministry, listening to parishioner needs, and measuring progress. The author provides a guide for clergy and lay leaders in a way that is clear and usable.

Tom Ehrich, an Episcopal priest, is president of the Church Wellness Project, with a nationally distributed weekly newsletter and a weekly column in Presbyterian Outlook. Speaking engagements include seminars at Union Theological Seminary and workshops nationwide. A nationally syndicated columnist for Religion News Service, he is author of several books and a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal. He lives in New York City.

"It is a masterful work and should be required reading for all- in church and classroom."—John Squire, lay leader at St. Bartholomew's Church, New York, and a participant in St. Bart's Church Wellness Project
