What if wanting your congregation to grow in average attendance as a method of transformation is the wrong goal? In many cases it is the wrong goal. It inhibits the ability of your congregation to fulfill a greater goal.
What could be a greater goal than wanting your congregation to grow? How about being in the center of God’s will for your congregation? What about following the spiritual strategic direction God has for your congregation? What about living into your future with faithfulness, effectiveness, and innovation?
When your congregation follows God’s leadership one side benefit could be numerical growth.
