What's Inside?

  • It’s a cheap little book that offers real value for your church. 
  • We actually list 166 ideas of things your church can quit, along with an introduction explaining the quitting concept.
  • Each idea is short—definitely less than a page, often just a few sentences. You can skip around and read it in any order. 
  • Not every idea applies to every church—some are even contradictory because different churches need to hear different things. 
  • We link to lots of resources that offer more depth.  
  • Covers welcoming visitors, the worship service, strategy, systems, giving, technology, graphic design, social media and more.  


So it’s quick and light, but also packs a punch. Is your church ready to quit?
