Many congregations are stuck in a pattern from the 1950s of pushing hard on promotional efforts to make their congregations successful. They start at the edges trying to get an increasing number of visitors, and then take them through a modified sales funnel. This is not all bad but can be fruitless if the congregation doesn’t know “why”.
The starting place is at the center of the congregation among the people with the greatest passion for the mission of God through congregational expressions. When these people are a spiritual and strategic movement clearly led by God then FaithSoaring is beginning.
