Description :Nearly one in four congregations in the United States is a midsize church (150-400 worshippers per week), and the midsize church has its own distinctive culture, dynamics, and characteristics. Drawing on years of research and pastoral ministry, David J. Peter has written a comprehensive handbook for pastors and staff who direct these churches. Peter covers the most important issues leaders encounter, including:

- The important role they play in advancing the kingdom of God

- Common cultural characteristics

- Typical problems and productive solutions

- Advantages over both small and large churches, and how to capitalize on them

- Practices for developing healthy programs

- The responsibilities of the pastor

- Guidance for hiring staff and recruiting volunteers Pastors of midsize congregations will find effective resources and encouragement for successful leadership.
