His first church, located in a large Tennessee city, was behind on its mortgage and the congregation had dwindled down to twenty people.

Within four years the entire mortgage was paid off and church attendance had grown to eighty.His second church was in a rural Virginia county. The congregation was composed of friendly low income families. The church had been a stepping stone “mission” church that had twenty-two pastors in thirty-four years. During Jeffs tenure, attendance increased from thirty-five to two hundred, the church had two building expansions, with 80% adult participation in church activities.How did these churches turn around?

The author shares his practical ideas and discusses the importance of pastoral leadership, a clear vision, the quest for excellence, an emphasis on discipleship, volunteer development, and “making noise” in the community.What is keeping my church from growing? What can I do with so little money? There is so much to do, where do I begin? Do I even know what I am doing? How do I suggest changes without offending the congregation? These are the sort of questions the author answers from his own experiences in leading two congregations to vitality.
