The Changing Church: Finding Your Way to God’s New Thing is the title of a new book co-written by Pastor Dan Cash and Dr. Bill Griffith.

Released on April 1, 2019, this second book the author’s have collaborated on, comes from their work together with the Men of Faith Friday morning Bible study group.  This book addresses the change all churches are facing in life and ministry today.  It does so from a biblical and sociological perspective, tracing eight great paradigm shifts in the history of God’s people, and inviting the reader to reflect on how those shifts have things to teach us about the change we are facing today.

Designed as a small group resource, The Changing Church is appropriate for individual study as well.  You can read the Foreward and Introduction to the book at at or

The following endorsement is shared by author Gil Rendle:
Change in the church is difficult, in part, because commonly we stand too close to understand how and why to move ahead.  Authors Cash and Griffith do a masterful job of the necessary weaving of scriptural insight, the application of the human sciences, and guidance for reflection that supports change.  This is a resource worthy of the time and conversation that will lead to missional change.
