Description

Strategic planning is a lost art (if it ever was an art) for the average local church. Most strategic planning consists of changing the year on last year's calendar. As a result, most church move down the road of change without realizing the changes taking place and without preparing for the new challenges that are ahead. This book takes the reader through the misconception that "our church isn't changing" to the reality that it is. It then goes through the process by which the church can do strategic planning so that it can be in charge of the changes instead of letting the changes be in charge of it. Through written for the church, the process outlined here can be used by any organization or business that need to Travel a Highway to Change.show more

About Dr Ernie Perkins

Ernie Perkins has had a most unusual life. He preached his first sermon as an eleven-year-old boy. The amazing thing is not that a little boy wanted to preach, the amazing thing is that his pastor and church took him seriously. They had seen his spirit and sensed that God was directing the boy in a unique manner. Thus, after taking with his pastor, the pastor made arrangement for him to preach the following Wednesday night. Under the pastor's leadership, the church gave him one Sunday night a month in which he was to preach. Furthermore, the church licensed him to the gospel ministry when he was twelve-years-old. Licensing in his denomination was the church's placing its approval on him and asking other churches to use him. It was an endorsement. Other churches did use him and he averaged preaching every week until he became pastor of his first church while still in high school. Realizing that a call to ministry was a call to prepare he has pursued his goal of life-long learning, earning three master degrees and four doctoral degrees. He and his wife, Wanda, keep their furniture in Edmond, Oklahoma.show more
