If you want to limit your church’s growth, attempt to control everything.
The goal of any Christian should never be to find a church you like and sit in the back row. The goal should be to fully engage the mission.
“Words matter when you’re a leader, and not all words are equally useful.”
“Wise leaders routinely evaluate their lives and leadership.”
“Churches don’t change. In fact, most churches avoid changing at all cost, even if it means not growing.”
Making positive lifestyle changes isn’t easy, but it really does start with that simple of a process.
“The quality of your friends shapes the trajectory of your life.”
“We must never allow a well-intended commitment to scripture turn into a pharisaic list of to-dos.”
“How many churches in America today clearly fall into one or more of these categories?”
“So how do you effect change when you’re NOT the senior leader?”
