Endorsements

The strength of this book is its clear and easy-to-understand tools, which are practical and tested

"Finally! A book that goes beyond the theology of community engagement to the concrete steps required to be in meaningful ministry with our congregation's neighbors. The strength of this book is its clear and easy-to-understand tools, which are practical and tested. Lay leaders and pastors will be encouraged by the accessibility of the many ways they can roll up their sleeves and begin (or deepen) the ministry they have always hoped for.”

Cynthia Woolever | coeditor, The Parish Paper

a book for mission-minded leaders of mission-dedicated congregations

"Dana Horrell has written a book full of practical suggestions, not only for making a home in a new land, but also for serving the needs of neighbors there. It is a book for mission-minded leaders of mission-dedicated congregations."

Donald W. Shriver Jr., president emeritus, Union Theological Seminary
