Here are a few things we believe about church growth
YOU'LL FIND THESE GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN EACH OF OUR RESOURCES...
Growth and Health can coexist

As hard as it may be to watch our kids grow so quickly, we ultimately want them to grow bigger and be healthy. Both are really important. Likewise, the church should be growing in both size and in health. If we fully resolve the tension one way or the other, we will lead our church toward error.

Leadership is a stewardship

Church growth is entirely up to God. Jesus tells Peter that He will build his church (Matthew 16:18). That doesn’t mean that we just sit around and wait for God to do something and send us a sign. God chooses to use us in the process. We see that divine partnership modeled in 1 Corinthians 3:6.

Wow people need how people

If you’re a WOW person (aka a person who is able to dream big and come up with revolutionary ideas), you’ll love these ideas. But you need HOW people to implement and take action.

I’m the pastor of a church plant in Nashville. Thank you for what you do. Many of your resources have been helpful to us. We have grown to 500-600 in attendance per week, so being able to build systems quickly utilizing your tools has been a lifesaver for us on more than one occasion.
