One of our greatest teachers are those that don’t teach but do. I have always encouraged people in the pew to go to a church that has a full parking lot and learn from what you see and experience, and bring it back to us to consider.
I’m not perfect but I do the best with what I have learned in 40 years of ministry. If you can’t get up and go to a church with a full parking lot, go over to youtube and look at the church I’m presently working with: https://www.youtube.com/user/miltonbaptistchurch or miltonbaptistchurch.ca
When I arrived we had less than fifteen people in the pews.
If you want to know more, send me an email or give me a call.
ONE IN THREE CHURCHES WILL FAIL AND CLOSE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS.
Will your church be one of them? Thom Rainer said this in his latest blog.
I have said this as well and also say, for many churches it’s too late to do anything about it. But not all churches will fail. Here is the choices: You can either fail or you can change. It’s that simple.
I know too much about what is happening out there but I can’t help you if you don’t ask for help.
Here is something else that I know.
- Churches that have changed are getting your members.
- Denominations want to sell your building because they need money to keep the main denominational office running.
- Churches that know they are not doing what Matthew 28 says, can change and grow again.
- The most growth in churches happens when churches re-invent themselves.
So, what do you want to do, be that one or be the other two that keeps bringing the resurrection message to a world that desperately needs Jesus Christ?
It’s your call.
