Hi, Everyone,

I have just submitted the book Small Strong Congregations.  I have read through 
the book completely and protected page numbers and stripped headings.  It 
should be an easy validation, and for anyone interested in the topic, the book 
is extremely informative and very readable.

The synopsis is below.

I truly hope someone will enjoy this book.

Create a small, strong congregation that is dedicated to advancing God's 
twenty-first century is the century of small, strong congregations. More people 
be drawn to small, strong congregations than any other kind of congregation. 
there are mega-congregations; Their number is increasing greatly. Nevertheless, 
the planet, the vast majority of congregations will be small and strong, and the
vast majority of people will be in these congregations."With uncommon wisdom 
Kennon L. Callahan--today's most noted church consultant--moves ahead of 
conventional thinking
and in Small, Strong Congregations offers his unique vision of the church of 
the future.This important book chronicles the emergence of a vast number of 
that are questioning the bigger-is-better notion in church membership. These 
congregations are deliberately small, active, and happy in their dedication to 
creating strong church communities that advance God's mission. Step by step, 
Kennon Callahan shows pastors and other church leaders how they can develop the 
values and specific qualities helpful to shape and strengthen their own small 
congregations.Written to be a hands-on
guide, Small, Strong Congregations offers practical suggestions for creating 
mission and service, compassion and shepherding, community and belonging, 
self-reliance and self-sufficiency, worship and hope, teams and leaders, space 
and facilities, and giving and generosity. This wise resource is filled with 
illustrative examples that show clearly how myriad small churches have created 
solid, vigorous congregations.
