About the Book

"Expanding Worship Opportunities is the right tool at the right time to build the right ministry!  In a day and age when attention isn't given, it's captured, Shon Neyland speaks from experience on how to build powerful services that captivate, motivate, and transform lives.  Expanding Worship Opportunities takes real challenges expressed by real people and offers creative solutions for tomorrow's Church!"

“A New Dawn belongs on the shelf of every seminary professor planning to prepare this generation to reach the next generation for Christ, every pastor planning to plant a new church, every worship leader planning their next worship service, every believer planning to shop for their next church.  Shon has given a real world example of how to “contextualize the gospel” so that this generation will also receive it.  Biblically accurate, culturally relevant, historically grounded, and user friendly.  As a pastor just outside one of the biggest military bases in the world (Eglin AFB), I wish I had access to A New Dawn before I planted my first church.”
