The More-with-Less Church

Maximize Your Money, Space, Time, and People to Multiply Ministry Impact

About

Do more, spend less

In challenging economic times, it is no surprise that churches must get creative with their resources. In The More-with-Less Church, the authors of the bestselling When Not to Build propose that church leaders look on these times as opportunities to reconsider ministry practices that may be siphoning time, money, and energy from their churches. Drawn from time- and field-tested strategies, this practical resource will help you avoid costly mistakes and maximize the return on investment in ministries, staffing, facilities, and finances.

"The conventional church growth wisdom calls for bigger staff, bigger budgets, bigger buildings. The More-with-Less Church shows it's possible to impact more people without breaking the budget or burning out staff."--Drew Dyck, managing editor of Leadership Journal

"This volume is chock-full of practical insights on how church leaders can free up more money for the real mission of the church--our impact BEYOND the church in helping people live better lives. The counterintuitive suggestions are just spot on."--Reggie McNeal, author of Get Off Your Donkey!

"The problem with many churches today isn't a shortage of ministries, staff, buildings, or finances--but an abundance of all these resources that are overprogrammed, underutilized, or poorly managed. The More-with-Less Church shows how to maximize your church's resources to fulfill its mission. Don't start another program, hire another staff member, lay another brick, or raise another dollar until you read this book!"--Jim Tomberlin, author of 125 Tips for Multisite Churches
