Congregations seeking to transform realize it is not about the success of their congregation. If that is their goal then they are likely to fail. Rather it is about the significance of Jesus in the lives of people. The goal is not to show people a successful congregation, and to invite them to come help the church grow, or come because we need their leadership.
The goal is to help people have a meaningful walk with Jesus. People long for a faith community who loves them and shows them how to experience the love of Jesus Christ in community with others.
