Dr. Gary L McIntosh


It’s no secret that the evangelism methods of yesterday are not yielding the kinds of results they did in the 1970s and 1980s. So how are new Christians hearing the Gospel today? How are they finding churches? And what makes them stay at a church? The answers to these questions have the power to dramatically alter the way we do outreach. And Dr. McIntosh has them.

Based on ten years of research, Growing God’s Church shows pastors and church leaders how people are actually coming to faith in the 21st century. It covers factors such as our motive for ministry, the priorities churches set for themselves, the reality of churchless Christians, generational and gender-based differences in evangelism effectiveness, the name of your church, the influence of pastors, and much more. The appendix includes a copy of the survey that provides the basis for McIntosh’s arguments and an overview of the study is provided in the first chapter.

  1. Bob Dipert

    I just got this book in the mail yesterday and read it in it’s entirety in two settings! Here’s a couple of gripping quotes: “While churches are becoming more missional in their thinking, they are becoming less evangelistic in their practice.” “If a church desires to be truly missional, evangelism must be restored to a primary place in its ministry.” “Since the earthly work of Jesus was to bring eternal life to lost humanity, this is the continuing mission of his witnessing band, now the church.” “Christ’s call is always a call to responsibilty, a call to action and a call to service!”
