In The Suburban Church, retired pastor Arthur DeKruyter encourages Christians to go where the people congregate and illustrates how to plant, grow, and renew suburban congregations. Throughout this book, DeKruyter relies on forty-five-plus years of pastoral ministry experience in which his own congregation grew from five families to more than five thousand members. He demonstrates how to minister successfully, dispels myths about suburbia, and explains how to recruit and support volunteers and how to connect international missions to local church growth, and more. Each chapter concludes with questions for discussion, making the book ideal for pastors and church committees." -- Publisher's description." ;
