Many congregations who need to transform go through a period when they believe the answer is to push harder on attracting people to the programs of the congregation. The hope is that some will stick, and the congregation will be more vital and vibrant. This is the wrong answer.
Transformation begins with people who are identified, inspired, and invited to engage in an ongoing disciplemaking process and involvement in a loving community of Christians committed to missional engagement. Transforming congregations believe in helping people soar with faith more than helping their congregation survive. It works!
