    1. Church leaders go to conferences hoping to discover some unique gimmick that will jump-start their church. But what works in one culture may not work in another. What one church adapts as positive change may be a source of division in another. You cant fight Goliath wearing Saul's armour. You cant minister with someone else's style. You have to be yourself and adapt to the culture around you. Remember the secret ingredients are the principles themselves, not the applications (p6).Proclaiming God [...]

    2. Up until he retired, Bob Russell pastored one of the larger independent Christian Churches in the United States. He looks over his ministry and the work at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky and shares how it has grown. His principles can be applied to any church, large or small, to help them become more effective in what God has called them to do.

    3. An amazing journey of how Southeast Christian Church - Louisville, KY, came from nowhere to become a Great Beacon set on a Hill Top. Every church leader should read this book and apply the simple, but transforming truths that Bob Russell presents -- Remember we are the tools HE is the craftsman that builds His church!

    4. The 10 principles for growing a Dynamic Church that Bob Russell shares are biblically sound and do seem to make the foundation a church should grow out of. Highly recommend reading and applying these principles - not to mimic Southeast Christian Church, but to let God work in your situation.
