In our success-driven culture the topic of dying congregations is taboo, yet that is a reality many pastors and congregations struggle through with little guidance for discernment. In The Role of the Minister in a Dying Congregation Jenkins provides a courageous and responsible resource on one of the most critical issues in congregational life: how to help a congregation conclude its ministry life cycle with dignity and meaning.
