Community is a fundamental life search and one of the key aspects people look for in a congregation. But community can't be forced, controlled, or easily created. The problem, says Joseph R. Myers, is that churches are too focused on developing programs - such as small groups - but should instead be concentrating on environments where community will spontaneously emerge. Organic Community challenges key leaders to become environmentalists - people who create or shape environments. Outlining nine organizational tools for creating a healthy environment, Myers shows readers how to diagnose their current situation and implement patterns that will develop healthy community.
