    Maximizing the Midsize Church

    Effective Leadership for Fruitful Mission and Ministry

    Nearly one in four congregations in the United States is a midsize church (150-400 worshippers per week), and the midsize church has its own distinctive culture, dynamics, and characteristics. Drawing on years of research and pastoral ministry, David J. Peter has written a comprehensive handbook for pastors and staff who direct these churches.

    Peter covers the most important issues leaders encounter, including:

    • The important role they play in advancing the kingdom of God
    • Common cultural characteristics
    • Typical problems and productive solutions
    • Advantages over both small and large churches, and how to capitalize on them
    • Practices for developing healthy programs
    • The responsibilities of the pastor
    • Guidance for hiring staff and recruiting volunteers

    Pastors of midsize congregations will find effective resources and encouragement for successful leadership.
