Guide Your Church into a Season of Health and Growth

If you're a pastor, no one needs to tell you that the majority of churches in America are in a state of stagnation or decline. It's possible that you are ministering in one right now. But there's hope. In The U-Turn Church, two pastors who turned their churches around show you how to help usher in a new season of health, faithfulness, growth, and vision in your church.

The U-Turn Church walks you through common roadblocks to growth into a hope-filled future. Isn't it time to begin your own U-Turn journey? Here's the practical help and wisdom born of experience that you need.
