Overflow: Increase Worship Attendance & Bear More Fruit Reviews
Often in the press of routine and everyday tasks it is easy to continue to replicate the same way of doing church. This timely review of the need to focus on those yet to come. Good surveys and review questions are supplied.
Good and constructive reading
Overflow is a sensible, down to earth book offering solid Biblical and Theological foundations for worship, followed by several practical suggestions to increase worship attendance in churches of all sizes. I especially appreciated Chapter 3, "Pay Attention to Worship Services." Some helpful, well thought out direction in this chapter on a team approach to worship planning and worship evaluation. helpful for clergy and laity alike.
This book is a great reminder of how much impact leaders can have on worship participation. This is more about people-engagement and a healthy approach to paying attention to people and worship. A worthwhile book to share with others who lead and plan worship.
But it misses the point of view from the pew and the Worship Team. This is really how to make sermons more worshipful with some ideas about music (as if it were just meant to support the message) and attendance gains. There may be those who defend it saying that the reason we gather is to hear the word - that is partly true. We also gather to RENDER Worship. The hearing and the learning of the wonderful message that the Lord has given for our souls is good., But we are not there primarily to be fed and nourished. The primary goal of man is to Worship the Lord and Enjoy Him. I liken this kind of book to an anniversary party where you are coming to celebrate the marriage of a wonderful couple and end up talking a lot ABOUT them but never really see them and celebrate them. Looking fully into the heart of God and delivering our love thru music and dance and art and words and offerings and gifts that is Worship. Gaining from the message is great for our hearts but it is not the function of Worship. If this book was going to give overflow it would not toss away music and the art of worship for the support of the message.
Great little Book - good service as well - great communication. I would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks for everything.
Need this book for information and use at my church. Was good reading material and very informative.
A great book to use as a tool for assessing or evaluation of the flow of your church worship experiences and their impact on the community. Good directional questions for leaders and teams in worship planning and mission.
