Book Blurbs: David Peter, Maximizing the Midsize Church

Erik Herrmann interviews David Peter about his recent book, Maximizing the Midsize Church: Effective Leadership for Fruitful Mission and Ministry. In the book, Dr. Peter draws on years of research and pastoral ministry to navigate the specific needs of midsize churches—congregations with an average worship attendance of 150 to 400. In the United States alone, nearly 25 percent of all congregations fall into this size category. The book is aimed to be a handbook for pastors and church staff.

The book is available from Kregel Publications at https://www.kregel.com/ministry/maximizing-the-midsize-church/ and on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Maximizing-Midsize-Church-Effective-Leadership/dp/0825445655.
