Danny Von Kanel’s new book, “Building Sunday School by the Owner’s Design” (100 Tools For Successful Kingdom Growth), published by CSS Publishing of Lima, Ohio, is “thinking out of the box” with church impact as its design.
A strong Sunday school program is a key component of any flourishing church – and Building Sunday School By The Owner’s Design provides a comprehensive toolbox jam-packed with 100 ideas for improving every aspect of a churches religious program. Building on the framework of his book Built by the Owner’s Design, Danny Von Kanel demonstrates how God’s Word offers a proven blueprint for effective outreach and growth – and he offers a wide array of practical approaches for making Sunday school the vital centerpiece of a spiritually thriving ministry. Von Kanel discusses the strengths and shortcomings of both traditional and contemporary “church growth movement” approaches to Sunday school, then points out how following God’s design offers a better method for igniting exciting growth. Grounded in Von Kanel’s own experience in several growing ministries and a careful analysis of research in churches from a variety of denominations, these tools can be used by any congregation (most have little or no financial expense). Convenient “Tool Time” and “Tool Resource” sections offer specific steps for implementing these ideas in the church. Building Sunday School By The Owner’s Design is an essential resource for pastors, teachers, and other religious professional – it offers everything needed to develop a life-changing Sunday school program that produces enthusiastic, deeply committed followers of Christ.

But also in many churches, the Sunday school must undergo a significant paradigm shift before this occurs. Danny Von Kanel’s book is a helpful resource to begin making this shift in your church.
