OLU BROWN - AUTHOR AND PASTOR OF IMPACT CHURCH - REVEALS STRATEGIES TO GROWING, STRENGTHENING AND LEADING CHURCHES IN NEW BOOKS '4D IMPACT' AND 'LEADERSHIP DIRECTIONS FROM MOSES'

In a time when churches are facing extreme challenges - from gun violence and terrorism to declining attendance and scandals - the faith community could use some guidance on navigating the harsh realities of modern times. Olu Brown, author and founding pastor of Impact Church in Atlanta, has provided timely wisdom on church management and leadership in his latest books 4D Impact: Smash Barriers Like a Smart Church and Leadership Directions from Moses: On the Way to a Promised Land.
Brown will bring this wisdom to life on Thursday, May 9 at 12:00pm ET during a one-hour interactive 4D Impact Online Conference where users will get a first-hand opportunity to learn the principles that guided Impact Church to becoming the fifth fastest-growing United Methodist congregation in the United States. To assess the "health" of a church, Brown believes there are four critical areas of 21st century church ministry that should be examined: culture, hospitality, worship, and technology. In 4D Impact, Brown shares stories of success and failure from Impact Church's ongoing journey and offers diagnostic tools to help you determine if your church is healthy or in need of a reboot.
Leadership Directions from Moses is a handy tool for those dealing with the departure of key members from the church. Brown uses the story of Moses to illustrate how to help others exit gracefully, how to not let yourself or a congregation be upended when others choose to leave, and how to find unexpected opportunities in the challenge of new vacancies.
"Like all church leaders, I want our church to be healthier and vital," says Brown. "However, given the times we live in, our traditional approach to reaching people for Jesus Christ has to evolve. I've been blessed to learn some key lessons as pastor of Impact and I want to share those insights with the world."
