Read this enthusiastic comment from a BC pastor

"I have known Stewart brown for over 40 years and have witnessed him in the roles of pastor,teacher,encourager, and friend. He has done some impressive work educating the church in a number of vital areas such as newcomer assimilation and creating a culture of encouragement, but I believe that he has accomplished his best work through this book.

"The REAL Welcoming Church" is, in my view, a must read.It addresses the Body of Christ at its weakest point--that of too often being unfriendly and self-occupied. The book issues a clarion call to change this by showing congregations how to be friendly, welcoming and encouraging. As a retired pastor attending a Mennonite Brethren church here in BC, I am recommending this book to my pastors. It is clear, persuasive,and utterly practical, and I am already learning from its pages."
