I Refuse To Lead a Dying Church!

 Paul Nixon

I Refuse To Lead a Dying CHurch!


God has called all of us to lead healthy, growing, spiritual churches. For this very reason, Paul Nixon refused to lead a dying church. Paul invites you in refusing, ever again, to lead a dying church.  This commitment entails six choices: Choosing life over death; Choosing community over isolation; Choosing fun over drudgery; Choosing bold over mild; Choosing frontier over fortress; and Choosing now rather than later. I Refuse To Lead a Dying Church! is the book that inspired the sequel, We Refused To Lead a Dying Church!
