The research gives a clear picture of the state of churches in America today. Most have fewer than 100 people attending services each Sunday, including 21 percent who average fewer than 50. (and that is pre-covid). Covid has many of us believing that worshiping via internet will do the trick since many are joining via internet. But (do NOT be fooled) many people still want to get up on Sundays and GO out to church!
Let’s rise up and get our churches growing even bigger than pre-covid! Isaiah 60:1 from the Message Bible (with a little help from me) says get up and get out of bed. (ok so you’re already out of bed) Wake up. Put your face in the sunlight. God’s bright glory has risen for you, Pastor, and your church. I can just feel the Glory! His glory stimulates us to grow!
The three things you need to know.
- A positive mindset will do it every time. Yes, your church will grow even bigger than before covid. Yes, Pastor, you with your members doing the right things and taking the right approach will grow. I guarantee it!
- A get involved mentality from your members. Many Pastors tell me how their members just are not motivated to help build the church. But I can tell you from experience how to get your members motivated and involved to pitch in, and pinch in some more, to help you grow the church.
- A Get involved in your community. No, I am not saying to start a community program! But Churches were never meant to “stay out” of the community. Churches were always meant to “get out” into the community. The more the community knows you and about your church the more they just might want to see what’s happening in your place of worship. Just be there for the community.
