If you are one of the millions who regularly attend religious services, you are undoubtedly aware of the profound effect your church, synagogue, mosque, or temple has on your life. Your religious congregation is likely involved in celebratory occasions such as births, marriages, and religious holidays, as well as in times of misfortune, illness, or the death of a loved one. Therefore, it is important, to have input into the major decisions that your congregation makes. And it is even more essential to know your duties, responsibilities, and options if you are even peripherally involved in its management.

- How you can offer suggestions to your priest, minister, rabbi, or imam
- Whether your religious organization is financially stable, and what type of fundraising is needed
- How the governing body of lay leaders of your congregation can be more effective
How to Manage an Effective Religious Organization will give you numerous ideas for improving your congregation, whatever its religious affiliation.
