There is a right way to leave a church and there is a wrong way to leave a church. This is a book about how to leave church the right way! Unfortunately, the right way to leave church has rarely been taught, resulting in many Christians “jumping ship” in a less than honorable fashion.
Written in two parts, the first half of Parachutes For Sheep provides a brief overview of Church history, the biblical job description of the local pastor and his importance, what to look for in a strong church, how to find your God-ordained church, and a general list of dos and don’ts when it comes time to leave a church.
The second half of Parachutes For Sheep evaluates the six major reasons why Christians change churches and then prescribes a biblical course of action—a “parachute”—in order to ensure a safe landing. These six reasons include:
- The Divine Reassignment
- Hunger for More of God
- Fleeing Apostasy and Heresy
- The Geographical Move
- Searching for an Easier Church
Parachutes For Sheep is a must-read for any Christian who’s considering changing churches and wants to do so honorably
