Based on interviews with pastors of growing churches, as well as personal experience, this book identifies the most common mistakes pastors make that keep otherwise healthy churches from reaping the harvest God has prepared. Each chapter spotlights a common mistake, gives real-life examples, uses a generous dose of humor, and provides a practical course of action to recover from the error. The book draws from the experience of Seacoast Church as well as pastors such as Craig Groeschel, Chris Hodges, Perry Nobel, Mark Batterson, Dave Ferguson, Scott Chapman, Dino Rizzo, Ron Hamilton, and Dave Browning, Church leaders will be encouraged to realize that they are not the only ones who struggle, and that turning their situation around may not be as daunting a task as they think. This is a field guide for the common pastor based on actual churches of all sizes.

  • This was a quick read and pretty informative for the pastor or leader charged with the responsibility of leading a church. (I know that God brings the increase in "church growth," and so does the author. At the same time, as a professor of mine in Seminary noted, God works through men.)

    Any organization leader understands the power of momentum and how hard it is to recover momentum once it is lost. (By the way, so does the enemy of "church growth," so he works overtime to try to kill momentum any way he can. (Many times using the decisions of leaders as a primary tool.)

    Surratt has a witty style of writing which makes the book easy to read and enjoyable. There is nothing "earth shattering" or patently "new" in his observations; however, the style of writing makes the approach tot he subject somewhat "disarming." Once the pastor lets down his guard, then Surratt can drive home his point.

    As I went through the list, I counted at least six of these mistakes I have personally made and all ten that I have observed. What makes me smile (and cry) on the inside, is that I made most of these, knowing in the back of my mind that they were stupid, but hoping that I would be wrong. (And please, before you throw me under the bus...I will bet you have too. )

    Most guys who do what I do, have tons more to read than time to read it. That being said, I understand the value in not wasting precious time with another "quick fix book." This is not one of those. It is a book to start the mind working, to prompt conversations among leaders of churches, and to expose the "big hairy gorilla" in the corner of the room that no one wants to acknowledge but everyone senses is there.

    I would recommend this book. In fact, I think I will buy a copy for my staff and make it the subject of ongoing training/development efforts in the coming months. Thanks Geoff for putting it in print!

  • What I needed for class

  • Geoff Surratt is a good author and a very wise pastor. The advice he gives in this book is invaluable. Every chapter may not fit your situation but every chapter is full of wise counsel. I definitely recommend this book.

  • Pretty quick in shipping. Satisfied

  • This book dares to go where most ministers and pastors would not. The most important thing is that the author puts a handle on the luggage we carry. Perhaps by putting handles on our junk we can move it out of the way. Perhaps this will give ministers a vocabulary to open discussion on topics we need to move through? I wish this work was longer, so it pegs out at four stars for not being a little deeper. It dares to bring into public discussion things that usually are only complained about behind closed doors. Very bold.

  • I tremendously enjoyed Geoff's book, "Ten Stupid Things That Keep Churches From Growing". It was an easy read because of the excellence Geoff used in communicating from his own experiences.

    I am in my 20th year of pastoring and I have a lot of lumps and bumps from making the VERY mistakes Geoff mentions in his book. If I would have had this book 15-20 years ago, I would be a lot farther along in ministry. I read this book while on little get-away with my wife. When I got home, I ordered copies for all of my staff members as a gift.

    I highly recommend this book.

  • Excellent and challenging at times. Helps you get a
    glimpse of the big picture and make necessary changes.
    Game changer.

  • While the information was obviously right it was in also very obvious to anyone with common sense. Reading it would have only helped those who should have recognized these 10 FAILS
