Church Growth
Church Growth: Use The Principles, Don’t Buy The Hype
When it comes to church growth and health, we need to lower the volume and listen with both discernment and faith.
  • Are based on the Bible
  • Elevate Jesus
  • Emphasize health more than numbers
  • Offer ideas, not promises
  • Acknowledge that there will be challenges
  • Grow disciples, not just crowds
  • Work in churches of all types and sizes

Hopeful And Healthy

Again, let me state what I said at the start. Most church growth leaders/teachers are interested in sharing principles, not hyping a product. But the voices of the small minority of hucksters are loud.

Don’t let a few loud voices make you so cynical that you can’t learn valid principles from legitimate church growth leaders.

Seek church health first.

Be curious. Remain teachable.

And stay hopeful.
