Review 1 for Finding Them, Keeping Them: Effective Strategies for Evangelism and Assimilation in the Local Church
I read this book as a pastor seeking a simple, church health resource for members of my congregation. Having determined our need for greater evangelism and assimilation, we needed a concise blueprint to help us build the ministry framework. McIntosh and Martin here offer an excellent volume that describes five stages of evangelism and five stages of assimilation.The beauty of this book is its simplicity. The points are very easy to follow, and the many diagrams give the concepts added clarity. I'm pleased with what I have found here, and recommend it highly.
