As a nationwide network of churches, Made to Flourish hears incredible stories of local churches who are finding innovative ways to seek the common good of their cities and connecting faith with work and the economy. This compilation of essays represents nine pastors and churches whose experiences are as diverse as the contexts in which they serve. They are churches in large cities and churches in rural areas. They are churches with thousands of members and they are churches with small gatherings. But even with all the ways they are different, they each share a belief that the local church can act as a powerful agent of cultural renewal for the common good in their communities.
