Do you love your church and want to see it thrive? Are you keen to learn from someone whose own church has grown and started others too? Are you ready for the downsides as well as the inevitable joys?

Ray Evans takes us on an interesting and exciting journey. He looks at the barriers to growth, as well as the hurdles of reorganization and structural changes that growing churches face. His findings are anchored in the Bible and the real world which we all inhabit.

‘Many have learned how to lead what they have,’ says Ray, ‘but they don’t know how to take it forward. You don’t see the glass ceilings until you crash into them, and the splinters bring pain everywhere.’

In Ray, you will find a humble, wise and warm–hearted guide. This book will not only equip your church to grow, but will help prevent unnecessary disasters.

Ray Evans

Ray is married to Jenny and they have four grown-up children and seven grandchildren. After completing two degrees at Cambridge, Ray moved to Bedford in 1980 and has served in the leadership of Grace Community Church for 35 years. The church has been involved in several church plants and has also seen its main congregation grow to nearly 500 attendees. Ray has learnt much 'the hard way' and is now assisting other leaders in overcoming some of the barriers to gospel growth that are faced in today's world. He has authored Ready, Steady, Grow (IVP) and Church Leadership (10 Publishing) to also provide help and encouragement. He is a keen sportsman, and is still playing hockey for the Bedford Veterans (a sight to behold as they all hobble onto the pitch). He is a keen reader of military history, and in any spare time is plotting the building of a model railway in his loft - for his grandchildren of course.

Ready Steady Grow

A very helpful book on how churches can grow and what particular problems can be encountered upon the way. The Acts 6 chapter was very insightful! A very accessible and readable book.

Ready Steady Grow

The first chapter of this excellent book is worth the money alone: churches are either small, medium, awkward or large. The concept of the awkward church resonated with me as the structures and systems of a small and medium church no longer work, but the necessary more specialised structures and systems for a large church have not yet been adopted. Biblical wisdom is applied throughout, such as the appointment of judges by Moses in Exodus 18 and deacons by the apostles in Acts 6. He also challenges those who are comfortable with small. One to buy for your pastor/elders.
