Church Growth

Church Growth

When Jesus described the Kingdom of God, He often used something from agriculture. Because of this, our department’s basic premise is “healthy churches grow, unhealthy churches struggle to survive.”  The Church Growth Department exists to help every church in our conference to be intentionally healthy and to grow.  To achieve this, we provide several tools to assess the health of your church.  Next we provide an experienced pastor to come along side of your leaders to help your church develop church health goals and to implement them.

The Church Growth Department not only assists in the health of your church, but also provides many tools to strengthen the spiritual health of your members.  In other words, we will assist churches to develop a culture of discipleship.  Specifically, we help your members have (1) an intimate relationship with God, (2) discover their calling and gifts for ministry as well as being coached into that ministry, and (3) learn how to be part of a healthy small group or ministry team.

If you would like your church to become healthier and grow, please contact us.
