Pastors & Church Leaders! What is the one thing you MUST do this year in order to grow your church and prevent members from leaving? Tell me …
Just imagine for a moment …
In the next few minutes as you study every word of this page, you will become invigorated and excited with the prospect – yes the very probability – that your long held dreams and visions are imminently now within your grasp – regardless of how much you may have struggled and agonized up to this moment!
Stop a moment and picture yourself a year from now … … five years from now … perhaps even ten … Where will you be?
Will you be part of a vibrant, growing, and excited community of Christians?
OR will you be a victim of the same old tire excuses, unable to change your church’s slow slide into spiritual oblivion?
If that’s you, then perhaps you’d better be seeking a new line of work.
Ministering to God’s people is not easy — and it is not work that everyone is cut out for.
Many are called it seems, but few are chosen – or choose – to succeed. Here’s hope at last!
Perhaps you have made the right choice for your life’s work after all, for God has guided you here.
The technology, tools, and information available now to churches, ministers, and church leaders today are phenomenal!
There’s never been a better time to minister the Word and the Gospel to God’s people.
So grab hold, and hang on!
Of the following, how many describe your church? If yours is like all too many churches today (including many old and established churches), you are probably experiencing one or more of these symptoms:
Now imagine a NEW spiritual reality that emerges in your church … … a reality both as a result of God’s grace, and as a result of your own ministerial insight, wisdom, and skill in applying the techniques you are about to learn !
Which church would you rather be a part of? Which church would you rather leave behind you, when it comes time to answer your next call?
A church of hope, vitality, and growth …
or a church of desolation and despair?
The choice is yours.
How will you choose to be remembered by your present congregation? Will you be remembered as someone who made it all happen?
… or just someone who just let it all happen?
You’ve probably driven by them yourself – vibrant young new churches, churches alive with massive new building projects, churches with parking lots and pews overflowing every Sunday, Wednesday, AND Friday – churches filled with excited, enthusiastic worshipers from all generations.
Churches with members flocking in the door from seemingly all directions. Budgets, pledges, and contributions increasing by leaps and bounds, and the pastor’s name spoken with genuine admiration and respect among his congregation and peers … !
Is this you? Wouldn’t you LIKE it to be?
What are you going to do to make it actually happen? … today … this month … this year ?
Now here’s the bottom line …
In every instance, with more and more churches in the United States on the decline, closing their doors, and laying off staff – how do these new, apparently up-and-coming churches and faith ministries achieve their startling, almost miraculous spiritual renaissance?
There’s really no other way to put it. There is no great mystery. The answer is simple, and it’s right there in front of you – IF you know where to look.
In this letter, I’m going to share this “secret” with you.
Now turn off the phone, close your door, and listen … Just imagine what it would be like if you could turn your church and your ministry into the kind of place that everyone wants to be a part of …
Imagine learning how you can motivate and inspire people, and lift them up to become great Christians and church workers!
Does that sound good to you … ?
Then look at this …
To have a successful, growing, vibrant church it is essential to observe successful, growing churches, and to learn from their most productive and successful methods!
But how? Well, remember my mentioning the tools, information, and technology that is available to you today?
Tools and resources that up to just a few years ago were completely unavailable, or unaffordably expensive, out of reach of any pastor except for the most accomplished and affluent elite …
Right off the bat, one thing that you will want do immediately is to join half a dozen or so of the many online church growth and professional church leadership groups that are out there.
Here’s a secret … … if you are a member of LinkedIn™ (hands down the very best professional networking site out there), or Facebook™, or one of the dozens of other social media and community networking websites out there, do a search for groups focused on church growth, then search for groups focusing on “Church Growth“, “Church Leadership“, “Church Growth Mastermind” and “Ministry Outreach“.
Join between four and six of the groups that appeal to you the most (you can always un-join later without obligation if you find they’re not for you).
Take an hour or so every day to read the posts from other group members – most of whom either are in the same situation you are, or used to be but found answers that turned things around for them professionally and in their church.
Ask questions. Ask for advice. Share your insights. Offer your own ideas, encouragement, and support. It works!
But … before you do that, keep reading for some really important information that will make all the difference in the world to you …
