3 Ways Some Churches Grow Without Getting Bigger
Butts-in-the-seats growth is great. But it’s not going to happen for every church. That's never a reason to give up, coast along, or offer excuses.

How Will Your Church Grow?

Butts-in-the-seats growth is great. But it’s not going to happen for every church.

That doesn’t mean we can give up, coast along, or offer excuses. We all have a responsibility to reach new people for Jesus while serving the members we already have.

Every healthy church can and should grow. But it may not grow in the way you want or expect. We have to be okay with that. After all, we’re not the ones in charge of building the church. Jesus is.

Today, there are more ways for churches to grow than ever before. Many of which require very little money, time or talent.

If you have the will to do it, the commitment to follow through and the humility to give Jesus the credit, every church can fulfill their role in the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
