About-

The purpose of this book is to provide a theologically sound yet easy-to-use resource, based on the image of God, that can help congregations engage relationally in their neighborhoods. Rather than using the neighborhood as a resource to help make congregations successful, The Neighborhood Church contends that God places congregations in neighborhoods to help make neighborhoods successful in accordance with God's vision.
This book is intended as a resource for pastors and other church leaders who pour significant amounts of energy into their congregations but feel frustrated with the results. The problem isn't with church leaders' energy or commitment. On the contrary, it's a lack of awareness as to how that energy and commitment can be channeled within God's call, mission, and movement. This book is a crucial resource for congregations having difficulty navigating the treacherous waters of what it means to be successful according to God's vision.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Rob's experience in the parish and his commitment to solid theology both show in this book. Grounded in a relational God who can not stop working to relate to the world that God both made and loves, Rob takes the church through a straightforward and easy-to-follow road map to building relationships in the community. Teams will find this book accessible and the short chapters followed by questions for reflection and discussion will make this one they can use to get started doing what the church should have been doing all along."
--Dave Daubert, Day 8 Strategies, Elgin, IL
