More Information
Mark Conner is one of the finest young leaders I know. He is that rare combination of a bright mind and a fully yielded heart. His observations concerning the shifts that must take place in order for a church to reach its redemptive potential are profound. And Mark's insights are far more than theory. One visit to his church is all it will take to turn cynics into believers. The Church for the 21st Century will require a higher level of leadership than any other era in human history. Books like this one will contribute a great deal to the development of such leadership. I am deeply grateful to Mark for his friendship and the impact that he is having on churches and leaders in Australia, and increasingly all over the world.

Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

Mark is in my opinion one of the spiritually brightest, organizationally savvy, and theologically intelligent church leaders in Australia today. He has clearly demonstrated great capacity to develop healthy churches in very difficult situations, therefore whatever he says in Transforming Your Church has real heft. A worthy read.

In this present age, the Church of God must come into the knowledge that it is our time to rise up, be transformed and used by God to fully engage the society and the community that he has placed us in. We are to be the salt and light in our generation! Mark's book will make an important contribution to this end.

When Mark speaks I listen. Why? Because Mark is a leader who has grown a dynamic, missional and multicultural church in the soil of post-Christian Melbourne, Australia. He is truly an exceptional voice, who offers advice that is balanced, biblical and brilliant.
