YOUR CHURCH CAN GROW AND BE HEALTHY
Jesus used a farming analogy to explain how the kingdom of God grows.
Once the farmer plants the seed, it grows by itself. The farmer isn’t in control of that process, and doesn’t even fully understand it.
Growth happens naturally, but after the farmer did the hard work of preparing the soil. And when the harvest is ready, the farmer goes back to work.
And that’s how church growth works.
It’s a combination of the blessings of God and the stewardship of man. God-given results somehow teamed with human endeavors. A combination of divine intervention and human leadership.
Acts 2:42-47 describes church growth as the result of intentional evangelism and discipleship. It seems that when the church loved God and loved their neighbor, the Gospel spread.
Jesus-centered teaching, a community built on love and investing in one another’s lives, and living a life of faith was not only the result of church growth but also the cause.
Here are some of our best resources on this topic.

We built Church Fuel for pastors of normal-sized churches
We don't use the term “small churches.” Because you're not small, you're normal-sized. You're showing up everyday, working hard to reach people and help them grow in their faith.
You don't have to be a mega-church to make an impact in your community. You need passion and vision and calling, for sure. But you also would benefit from systems, strategy, and practical best-practices.
Church Fuel will bring real-world training and resources to pastors and church leaders just like you. We're not just for you…we're with you.
