Thousands of church leaders are now looking for fresh ways to transform worship space into an environment that helps people to connect with God in deep and meaningful ways. With all eyes on the altar and the cross each week, thousands of congregations now have an opportunity through imagery to coordinate and reinforce the theme of the preaching and music.
Awesome Altars is an illustrated tool kit—a book and “how-to” DVD—that explains new ways to use altar design to help people more fully worship God. This inspirational package, which includes recipes for many altars, describes how imaginative and creative ideas can come together to prepare and attract the people of God.
By using true and often funny stories, plus specific hands-on examples, this book and disk will help you organize an altar team, work with the pastor and music staff, cultivate fresh ideas, and deliver inspiring worship space, week after week.
