About-

What is the secret of a vital, growing church? The answer Dr. Ortlund suggests in this book is deceptively simple - and life-changing. In thirty years of working with churches big and small, he has come to believe that the church comes closest to being what God intended when it structures itself around three priorities:

Priority One: Christ
Priority Two: The Body of Christ
Priority Three: The World

And he draws on wide reading, extensive Bible Study, and years of personal experience to show 'how' rediscovering and using these three priorities can make a tangible difference in the life of any church. 'Three Priorities for a Strong and Local Church' is a must reading for ministers, but also for church staffers, vestry, elders, counselors, teachers, small-group leaders - anyone who cares deeply about the church of Jesus Christ and what it can be.
