Every pastor that I have ever spoke with wants to grow their church. If they didn’t, they probably shouldn’t be the pastor at the church. Growth is something that everyone wants, but not everyone experiences. Now, growth in church is always a touchy subject.

The question that has boggled my mind lately though is this: If leadership development is so important, why are churches not better … Continue reading 3 Ideas For Developing a Leadership Pipeline In Your Church
Continuing to update and grow your vision is one of the most difficult tasks that leaders face. Leaders are called to lead people to carry out the vision that they have. Vision is important? Why? People are attracted to organizations that have purpose. People follow vision driven people. Bottom line, if you want followers, you must have a vision. You must have a dream for where you are taking the organization that you are leading. So, where does this vision come from? Where do the dreams come from, and how can you obtain the God sized dreams and vision for … Continue reading How to obtain a God sized Vision for your Church
One of the biggest questions that church planters must ask is should they go permanent or portable with their facility. Hopefully in this post, I can give you some insight on the positives of portable churches. Continue reading Why your Church Plant Should Consider Starting in a Portable Facility
Every pastor wants their church to grow. No pastor sits around desiring for his church to stay exactly where it is and never grow. Now before we go further, I am criticizing small churches. I love small churches. As I … Continue reading 5 Reasons Some Churches Don’t Grow
