"In a society where many people search desperately for elusive 'family values,' this book roots hospitality where it belongs—in the graciousness of God," writes one reviewer.

In The Faith-Sharing Congregation, Swanson and Clement reclaim the local congregation as the center of ministry and mission, demonstrating that evangelism is the responsibility of the entire congregation—clergy and laity—working together.

The Faith-Sharing Congregation suggests a threefold evangelism strategy that includes:

  • sharing faith through the practice of genuine hospitality
  • sharing faith through relationships and personal stories
  • sharing faith through the "domestic church," the body of Christ

From its beginnings as a daily devotional guide, The Upper Room has grown to include publications, programs, prayer support, and other resources to help believers of all ages and denominations move to a deeper level of faith and service.
