is a guide to help new pastors, seasoned pastors, and lay leaders of African American congregations in administration and spiritual leadership of their churches. Go Grow Your Church! offers administrative advice, suggests methods, and maps out an implementation process. James F. Miller, drawing from his many years of experience as a pastor of a congregation he grew from 150 to 2,300 members, actually takes into consideration how these congregations will respond to the methods and skillfully connects the elements of spiritual growth with the practical aspects of church ministry.
