From ChurchLawAndTax.com

How do you know if your church is ready for change, or if it needs to? This collection of assessments helps you and your leaders make these decisions. Use these tools to figure out if your church needs change, if you're ready for it, how to present it, and how to make it happen. You can also think through and identify any risk factors you may face in the change process.

From PreachingToday.com

In this article Jack Hayford shows that a clear word at the right time can keep the church from pulling apart. The best way to do this, according to Hayford, is through landmark sermons. Strong leaders are known for their landmark sermons. Landmark sermons are defining moments of a church and a pastor. Without them there are no boundaries, no line in the sand; there is nothing to communicate vision and goals, policies and practices, beliefs and standards.
