We need less conventional wisdom and more creative leadership.
Not all of the advice youve heard on church growth works. Judging by results, most doesnt. Its time we re-evaluate the standard thinking on how to grow a church, especially considering new voices questioning the worth of church growth.
Jim Cowart is shepherding an amazing story. 1800 professions of Christ in ten years have propelled Harvest Church from a church plant of four Jims family to a thriving community of Jesus disciples. Harvest is changing their world and having a party while they do it.
Learn why conventional church thinking such as pastoral care, long-term planning, stewardship campaigns, committees and even staff inhibit church growth. Learn how to do less, and lead more people to Christ.
