About the Book/Author
"A Guide for Pastors, Leaders, and Congregations” How to Grow a Congregation Spiritually and in Number through Preaching is just that: a study in how to grow congregations through preaching, addressing such challenges as:
How to make prospective members of the church feel more welcomed/accepted;
How to welcome back lapsed members of the congregation who may feel detached from the congregation or church leadership;
How to speak to the congregation using their voice, with specific understanding to their needs and circumstance.
By interviewing church goers, those who used to attend church, and church leadership at Vine Memorial Baptist Church, all of whom provided up close and personal information that speaks directly to the problems facing many congregations today, Hoggard was able to provide meaningful solutions to these issues and more.
