A Guide, Not A To-Do List
Please note that this list is not designed to add pressure to an already overtaxed church leadership. It’s not a you-must-do-all-these-to-be-healthy list, as much as a here-are-some-other-ways-to-look-at-health list.
While all of them are good, and many are essential, you’d be hard-pressed to find even a great, healthy church that’s doing all of them well.
So use this list as an encouragement and an aid, not a source of intimidation. Take note of what you’re doing well, strengthen the ones you should be doing better, and use others as inspiration for the future.
Great churches aren’t built on bigger numbers, but on better ministry.
