Breaking Barriers 1

Craig Groeschel has one of the largest churches in the country and his church is VERY innovative. I love to hear what he has to say on church growth and leadership. Check out these next few posts from him. I think you will enjoy them as I have.

All growing organizations eventually hit barriers to growth. When the barrier becomes greater than the leadership’s ability to navigate, the organization will stall.

This week, I’m rerunning a week of posts about how to break through barriers to growth.

(Let’s not forget, God brings the growth. But there are certain things we do to limit or facilitate growth.)

Generally speaking, the longer your church has been beneath a barrier, the more dramatic step it will take to break through the barrier. If some small change would make the difference, you would have made that a long time ago.

Questions You Must Ask:

  • Do we really want to change?
  • Are we prepared to lose some people to reach more people?
  • Would I be willing to resign my spot if that is what it took?

What are your thoughts?
