All too often we try to create something new, or do something that catches the attention of those outside the "building", rather than make sure the inside is healthy and thriving. What we need is inner growth, discipleship, and strengthening those who are attending.
Thankfully Randy Pope has gone before us and is sharing his experience and knowledge with the rest of us.
After reading this book, we have gained encouragement for what we have done and been nudged to do more.
I highly recommend this book.

Highlighting the successful “life-on-life missional discipleship” practices that his church has refined for over twenty years, Randy Pope inspires pastors and church leaders to leave behind ineffective programs and to stop “outsourcing” the task of discipleship by moving it from the margins of the church back into the mainstream.
