Changing Churches by Dottie Parish is about her journey to find the church that would best fit her, because of the troubles in those churches.

Dottie Parish shows us:

  • How to find the church God wants us to go to.
  • How to understand all of the changes that are happening in the churches.
  • What the right reasons are for leaving a church.
  • How to work together as a married couple when leaving and searching for a new church.

About the Author:

Dottie Parish and her husband returned to her faith in 1990.  She is a mother and grandmother.  She has had more than thirty years of professional experience as a counselor.  This is her first book.






My thoughts-

I really liked Changing Churches by Dottie Parish.  I liked how she divided it into two parts:

  • “Part 1: A Journey in Three Churches”
  • “Part 2: Lessons for Changing Churches”

I liked the “Interlude” which shows leavers of the church and leaders of the church how to best leave a church and what it is like for those who leave the church.

This book was an easy read and people of all denominations can use it.  One of the most important parts of this book to me was how Dottie Parish discussed what she went through as she spent time in different churches and how it felt to her.

My favorite chapter  was chapter 13, “Changing Churches in a Changing Culture.”  This chapter contained information about technology in churches, mega churches, and postmodern churches.

I would recommend this book to everyone.  All leaders and laypersons need to read this book.
