Overview

A Newly Updated and Rebranded Edition of The Deliberate Church.

In the process of building a church, there are many things to consider—who will the elders be? How many seats should the sanctuary have? What type of music will the musicians play? Even more important—how do leaders ensure that the church is centered on the gospel?

In this practical guide, pastors Mark Dever and Paul Alexander have compiled a handbook for pastors and church leaders on how to build a healthy church grounded in the gospel. The authors offer a helpful framework for building this type of ministry: laying the groundwork (evangelism, new membership, church discipline), structuring the gathering (preaching, worship, ordinances), designating the elders (their importance, requirements, and installation), and encouraging devotion to prayer and God’s word. A companion resource to Nine Marks of a Healthy Church, this practical guide presents new and seasoned pastors alike with a vision of the church deliberately structured to display God’s glory.
