Nelson SearcyJennifer Dykes Henson. He does make the point very clear that membership fussion for believers, but it saddens me that such a point must be made in a book discussing how to appropriately assimilate people into the church.
While many of the ideas contained herein require a rather large church and wouldn’t work for a small group of volunteers, there’s enough practical knowledge here to glean something useful for nearly everyone.
This innovative, practical guide is full of how-to information, testimonials from the tusion assimilated and from participating church leaders, examples of the assimilation materials used, and check points to make sure the reader is on track. This is by far the best book that I have ever read, in regards to assimilation.
