All By Itself Pathway

The Anglican edition of All By Itself Pathway, with a Preface by the Bishop of Coventry, invites you into a 90-minute encounter with Christian A. Schwarz, the founder and head of the Institute for Natural Church Development (NCD).   He reduces the discoveries of two decades of research in tens of thousands of churches to a handful of personal action steps.   While countless churches have implemented individual aspects of Natural Church Development, the majority have yet to discover the strategic key that Christian calls the All By Itself Pathway—consistently living in line with the unique gifts, energies, and resources that God has already granted you and your church.

This Anglican edition is particularly helpful, and easy read and would be ideal to make available to members of your congregation.

Colour Your World with Natural Church Development

With Natural Church Development, Christian Schwarz introduced a fascinating approach to church growth that really works and has been accepted all over the world and is the basis of Coventry Diocese's approach to the 8 Essential Qualities. In this book Schwarz shows how the biblically-based principles of Natural Church Development can also be a blessing for the spiritual development of the individual believer. Colour Your World with NCD is a powerful, graphically written book for people who seek to live out their faith with balance and passion and thereby impact their church health.

What is the church? The church is people. What determines the health of a church? The health of the heads, hands and hearts of those people. How can we enhance the health of a church? By enhancing the health in our heads, hands and hearts.
