The Real Church Growth Barriers

When most people talk about growth barriers, they talk about adding services, changing styles, doing outreach campaigns or making tactical changes. While those are important, there are more important, underlying issues facing your church. Join us for this free, live training where we will break down the real church growth barriers and give you practical action steps on what to do next.

On this free training, you will learn…

Five things that hinder church growth (and what you can do about them)

Not all of the barriers you’re facing are spiritual. We’ll talk through five barriers you’re facing and lay out some practical steps you can take to break through them.

How to get your leaders on the same page

Even if you want to grow, if your people don’t agree on the method, you can spend your time running in circles. On this training, we’ll give you a tool that will help you get all your people on the same page.

Practical Ways to Create a Growth Culture

There's a lot of talk about the importance of culture. It’s usually too etherial and sometimes even mythical. But there are tangible steps you can take to build a culture of growth in your church, and we’ll give you the ideas.

This free training is a “must-attend event” if…

You’re ready to move ahead after this tough season of ministry and start reaching people in your community.

You’re overwhelmed with tactics, ideas, and all the stuff already on your plate and you crave some simpler solutions to the problems you are facing.

You want to be a good steward of your leadership and help your staff, leaders, and volunteers guide the church to a season of growth.

A word from your host

So much has changed in our world this year. Now more than ever, it’s important to remind your church what HASN’T changed.

God is still in charge. The Gospel still changes lives. And the church must stay on mission.

That mission absolutely involves helping your people grow. But you’re also called to reach new people. Evangelism and discipleship…both parts of the Great Commission.

My name is Michael and I’m the founder of Church Fuel. Before starting the company six years ago, I was a pastor of a church working hard to reach people. Today, we work with hundreds of churches from nearly every state and dozens of countries.

I want to help you cut through the noise and clutter and give you something actionable you can do right now to break through the barriers you’re facing and guide your church to healthy growth.

There’s no formula, but there are some best practices. You can learn from what others have experienced.

Ask around… our free trainings are packed with valuable information and insight.

I’d love to see you on April 15 at 1pm EST.

I have found Church Fuel resources immensely helpful. For all of the theology and deeper understanding of Scriptures (this is very much needed), it is appalling how ill-prepared people are for the business side of church life. I have not found anyone that is as practical and hands-on relevant as Church Fuel. You are providing something that most seminaries and training materials lack and it would be helpful to any church of any size in any denomination. Church Fuel fills a desperately needed gaping hole.

It is not an exaggeration to say that Church Fuel has completely changed my ability to do ministry. I experienced a HUGE gap between what I learned in Bible college what was needed to succeed in pastoring a local church. I have grown more in leadership knowledge and ability in the last 8 months than in the last 8 years trying to feel my way through. I'd pay double for these incredibly practical and helpful resources (please don't charge me double).

What I like most about Church Fuel is it allows me to have clarity in my leadership and it's afforded me the tools to grow personally, so that I can lead this organization in a better way to a better future. Team training has been really vital. It's been a huge part of our staff and our leadership development. Each week, we gather around. We would personally watch the videos, come with our discussion guides, and use the first 20 or 30 minutes of our staff meeting to talk about what we've learned, to talk about how we are going to implement it, and what's the fruit of those things that we're learning and growing in in those ministries.

Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for serving the church with practical resources to fulfill the Great Commission. I'm the executive pastor of a small and growing church in rural NC, and your resources are an encouragement to me. Be encouraged; you're not running the race in vain.
