Every year, thousands of pastors are forced from their ministries, many never to return. Studies reveal that forced terminations. once having occurred in a local church, often repeat themselves in the same church, demonstrating a pattern of dysfunction and difficulty within those fellowships.
In Toxic Church, Chris Creech examines how the patterns of family dysfunction find their way into the life of the local church, often producing severe conflict, causing division, enabling sin and even ending the ministry of the pastor and possibly even the local church.
Chris Creech outlines a plan for recognizing dysfunction within the church family, diagnosing the root causes of that dysfunction, and taking steps to protect the church and the pastor from what many call the epidemic caused by toxic churches and the clergy killers within them.
