“A crisis does not have to break your church. Rather, it can be an opportunity to strengthen your church to weather the storms.” – Phil Cooke

ABOUT THE BOOK

Church on Trial will help you create a transparent culture as a defense against crisis – and if one does happen, serve as a guide to help you respond quickly and effectively.

A crisis can happen to anyone, at any time.

Most pastors and ministry leaders simply don’t think disaster could strike. The highly publicized stories of leaders like Ravi Zacharias, Hillsong, and Bill Hybels were unexpected and show how easy it is for ministries to be blindsided.

As Christians we want to think the best…

But when we refuse to acknowledge suspected problems and red flags, we are setting the stage for catastrophe.

How serious is the problem?

27% of church members leave their faith because of leadership scandals.1 We’re losing more than a quarter of our congregations because of moral, financial, and other unethical behavior within our churches.

“Crisis communication is not about defending other people’s mistakes. It’s about how to respond during a crisis with the goal to save the church or ministry organization.” – Phil Cooke
