Pastor applies decades of experience and anecdotes to help other church members

NEW ALBANY, Miss., Aug. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Terry Cutrer uses his own experience, education and wisdom to show fellow Christian members how to revive their joy for worship in "Secrets of Being a Happy Church Member."

While pastoring at over six different churches, Dr. Cutrer has come across various forms of churchgoers. He observed that some are going through the motions, lost the spiritual flame or are just downright unhappy. The book aims to give advice to those seeking a more fulfilling experience.

Dr. Cutrer delves into detail about his 12 secrets to enriching a fellow Christian member's experience in service and everyday life. A few themes explored in this book look into different participation methods, finding your niche and what to do when the honeymoon phase wears off in your warship.

Throughout the book, Dr. Cutrer gives personal advice, breaks down passages from the Bible and goes into detail about real-life situations that he has come across and how he solved these problems with various solutions.

"Over the years, I have encountered numerous church members who derive very little joy from their church encounters," Cutrer said. "This book is addressed to those millions who want the joy of their church life, as well as their salvation, restored."

Dr. Cutrer does believe that most members do thrive and get a charge out of being a part of the Christian faith, however, he does understand that there are those that need a little advice and direction.
