History has shown that great leaders have the ability to reach beyond the walls of their churches to influence cultures for Christ. Weâ€™ve seen it in the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement, in the explosive growth of house churches in Communist China, in the expansion of the Southern Baptist Convention, and in the worldwide rise of praise and worship music led by Hillsong Church, among other phenomena. In The Ten Most Influential Churches of the Past Century, Dr. Elmer Towns presents evidence of the powerful influence of these churches and how their innovative strategies and faith accomplish these goals. Then he tells how you can apply these principles to your church. You will learn how some of the most influential leaders in Church history became conduits for your future ministry and how your church can experience exponential growth. Most importantly, you will see that the great results in these ten churches grow out of the power of the Word of God, the ministry of many dedicated lay workers, the faith-producing ministry of great leadersâ€”all under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
