The early Methodists : lessons in renewal and transformation for the contemporary church
"Can the experiences of the early Methodists help midsize churches in the United States in decline find growth and new life? The early Methodists experienced renewal and revival as they explored alternative and innovative missional models. The author conducted a survey among United Methodist clergy and laity to investigate the need for change and innovation in their congregations and what tools would help both leaders and churches thrive. Additionally, the author interviewed modern innovative Methodists who in their work are modeling a new way of being church today. The project suggests that the early Methodists can inspire churches in unique ways to be innovative and transformative in their contexts, congregations, and communities." -- Leaf .
