Love Your Church

8 Great Things About Being a Church Member


God calls us to be “devoted to one another in love” (Romans 12:10). What does this look like for us today? How can we be the kind of church member who makes a real difference?

This book explores what church is, why being part of it is exciting, and why it’s worthy of our love and commitment. In Love Your Church, I set out eight privileges and responsibilities of a church member: to belong, to welcome, to gather, to care, to serve, to honor, to witness and to send.

The best thing I could say about this book is that I love the church more after reading it.
