MODEM has in the past published substantial books in the areas of leadership, management and ministry.



MODEM’s fifth book, 101 Great Ideas for Growing Healthy Churches, was published in November 2012.

A variety of experienced church leaders, missioners and other practitioners share simple and effective ideas for enhancing the life, worship and witness of every local church. Their 101 ideas cover vision, strategy, communication, preaching, leading and managing others, managing yourself, growing the Church through worship, community presence and involvement, mission, best working practices, personal spiritual wellbeing and working effectively with other churches. With humour, realism, real-life stories and top-tips for dealing with challenging situations, here is a welcome aid for all clergy and lay church leaders.

Edited by John Nelson, Michael Lofthouse and Anton Muller. Canterbury Press, 254pp, £18.99.
