Bill Easum and Bill Tenny-Brittian summarized some of the most important findings in missional church growth from the last 20 years. The point they both stressed is that a church must be missional or is not a church. I cannot agreed more but they go beyond by the outward focus a missional church must have and using proper staff for growth more than to maintaining the membership. Many ideas from different planters, pastors and authors Id read came to mind again thanks to this book.

Staffing for Vital Churches: The Essential Guide to Finding and Keeping the Right People. To answer these questions, Easum and Tenny-Brittian lay out four core processes for fueling church growth and transformation (29): Bring people to Christ and into the kingdom.

Since staffing costs account for more than half of all expenditures each year in the majority of congregations and since staff have strategic leadership roles, staffing has the greatest overall influence on the growth or decline of each congregation. Recognizing the importance of effective staffing, Bill Easum and Bill Tenny-Brittian team up to deliver a practical guide based on their decades of experiences with over a thousand congregations.

Easum and Tenny-Brittian begin with the understanding that the staff should never be hired for the purpose of doing ministry, but rather, should be called to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12). Additionally, given this focus and the dominant current culture, several shifts are needed to move beyond the old model:

(1) From professional paid staff overseeing volunteers who lead programs to paid servants who equip and coach unpaid servants to oversee most pastoral ministry;

(2) From a reliance on all paid staff to a combination of paid and unpaid servants;

(3) From focusing on the needs of the congregation to an outward community oriented focus; and

(4) From a clear division between clergy and laity to an "it doesn't matter if you're ordained or not" approach (p. 22-23).

Easum and Tenny-Brittian's approach is formulaic and easy to follow. They propose congregations are best served by staffing for the four core processes: (1) bringing people in/inviting, (2) retain them/connecting, (3) discipling them/apprenticing, (4) sending them back into the world. Regardless of congregational size, each parish must give proper attention to all four areas. Recognizing the unique challenges facing congregations within each size category, chapters on each of the four core processes are followed by chapters focused on the four transition points congregations experience if they continue to grow moving from a small solo pastor centered congregation to a large parish led by a variety of individuals and teams with a lead pastor responsible for glocal thinking and future oriented visioning.

This is a good book, but for different reasons. I was hoping that the book would deal with the hiring process and the process of looking for the right process. At Castle Rock, we are continuing to grow, and we needed to add staffing. We found the right guy, but before that process, I wanted to educated myself a little more on the process of hiring correctly. This book is great for understanding the roles of some staff people. Too often staff members will end up tilling the same soil. This rarely creates value in a congregation. The book does a great job in outlining what each staff member should be doing to help a congregation growth. The book is excellent in dealing with staff functioning in various sizes of a church. If you are looking for a book to tell you how to hire, this is not the one, but it is great in defining the purposes of the people. It also deals with other elements of staffing like creating a different perspective how what to hire for. The book is more of a leadership text, with strong missonal elements. It would be just as good for a church to read it that is trying to define the roles of a staff than just to read it before a hire.

This book helps a church think through their staffing needs from the small church to the large church. It divides staffing into four quadrants that are absolutely essential for the church. Note, "staff" includes both paid and unpaid staff, who focus the church to become backyard missionaries to our communities.

I highly recommend this book to pastors and church leaders, who deeply desire to align their church structure with the surrounding mission field in mind.

A good look into the differences of staffing a church for today and why we need to have a fresh view of what that looks like.
Interesting thoughts for me with a background in the traditional church. Good read for ANYONE who is part of a church and has an interest in being a part of God's larger church.

I judge this book to be a five because the content not only addressed the subject, it tied the subject of staffing to the overall goals and vision of the church regardless of the size of the church. It was even more value for the money than I expected and I expect a lot from the Bill and Bill team. We've decided to have our entire personnel committee get and read the book along with our senior pastor. Great book!

I took some good reminders and a few new nuggets from the book but it wasn't my favorite. It is worth the read if you are trying to move from an inward focused church to an outward focused church.

The information about the four core processes that are necessary to be a vital church is worth the price of the book. The information about the changing role of the pastor is something I wish I had thirty years ago. If you are a pastor or a church leader please carefully and prayerfully read this book. You will be encouraged and challenged as you consider the future of your local church.
When the authors refer to "staff" they are talking about paid and nonpaid ministers. We are ALL.ministers. So this book can be applied to ALL sizes of church.
