Church leaders, we need to practice these things.
One of the essentials for leading an outreach-focused, growing church (and likewise RARELY present in a stagnant one) is a detailed 12-month church growth calendar created six months before that calendar year begins.
What I mean by this is the Senior Pastor and team must create a roadmap for the congregation to follow, which, when executed, will ignite church growth.
So good. Listen to this conversation!
Funny and thought provoking. I laughed out loud.
It’s one thing to want to see your church grow.
It’s entirely another to position your church structurally so you can accommodate growth.
If you structure bigger, you can grow bigger. If you don’t, you won’t.
Those who are teachable, and remain so, usually succeed. The unteachable usually fail. I’ve seen that in business, I’ve seen it in the ministry, I’ve seen it among students, and I’ve seen it in my children.
What if there were more ways to reach people for Christ than on a Sunday morning in a worship service/experience/gathering/celebration? Our culture is changing quickly. People are less likely to step foot in a church. More people have an eclectic set of beliefs that don’t fit in one religion, rather they span across multiple religions. More people have their weekends (including Sunday mornings) taken up by their child’s sports games and other recreation activities.
If you’re a young leader or are leading young leaders, make sure you give this a read.
