Dr. David W. Anderson

Do you wonder what vibrant faith looks like in a congregation? The Vibrant Faith Frame is a great place to start! The Vibrant Faith Frame helps connect all of a congregation’s programs into one ministry, rather than having several disconnected activities under one roof. As a result, congregations stay focused on two foundational tasks in everything they do—Christian faith formation and community outreach. Whether just getting started or looking for best practices, this book outlines what the Vibrant Faith Frame should look like from the perspective of various congregational ministries, including evangelism, Christian education, worship and preaching, youth and family, and stewardship. As the second book in a trilogy, this is an excellent follow up to From the Great Omission to Vibrant Faith: The Role of the Home in Renewing the Church.

What People Are Saying:

“Part manual and part inspiring narrative, Vibrant Faith in the Congregation is a book the church has needed for many years, and most particularly for the last quarter century. Anderson describes persuasively and usefully the place of “congregation” in the religious and also the spiritual formation of both the believer and the community of believers itself. I have not seen a better or more useful presentation of these concepts in a very long time, if ever at all.”
- Phyllis Tickle
Author of The Great Emergence

“David Anderson gets it. In Vibrant Faith in the Congregation, Anderson refuses to settle for simplistic solutions to the ecclesial malaise of the American Christianity and raises the bar for congregations and families. He puts the right tools into the hands of both parents and congregation leaders, striking an authentic, rhythmic vision for ministry that balances irreducible faith-forming forces of home and church.”
– Mark DeVries
Author of Family-Based Youth Ministry, veteran youth pastor, and founder of Youth Ministry Architects

“Authentic, affirming and ACHIEVABLE! Anderson starts where so many American congregations find themselves today and describes an ecology of being church that is Biblical, baptismal and relevant. The Vibrant Faith framework is not a gimmick or quick fix, rather a compass to align the assets of your congregation and community for effective and faithful mission.”
