You know God's power is boundless, but you're wondering why your church attendance doesn't grow beyond a certain point. Focusing on small-, medium-, and large-sized churches, this guide features detailed instructions on how to overcome self-imposed "growth barriers" and expand ministry in your community. Learn how to grow spiritually and numerically! 256 pages, softcover from B&H.
A growing church is a living church, but much of the attention in church growth today is focused on making big churches bigger. This encouraging new book shows members of small and medium-sized congregations how to revive and expand their ministries as well. Churches of every size tend to plateau in attendance and never break free of their self-imposed limitations or 'growth barriers'. This book gives detailed, practical instructions for breaking through those barriers to new levels of impact and service in the community. The EveryChurch Guide to Growth rallies church leaders and members to develop plans for strength and solid growth in the future.
