Older Doesn’t Mean More Mature (in Christ)

The “maturity” of a Christian has little to do with how long ago that person accepted Christ.  Likewise, the “maturity” of a church has little to do with how long it has been in existence.  In fact, there is often an inverse relationship between the amount of time that has passed since:

  • one’s rebirth and the depth of a person’s walk with the Lord
  • the planting a church and its overall spiritual “health”

“Younger” churches are often more mature…

Consider the following signs of “maturity” and typical changes that occur over the life of a church:

Discipleship

  • New – Fewer staff and members gives leaders more time to invest in each one
  • Old – Growth leads to less personalized,

How Can Your Church Engage Millennials?

Many churches are at a loss as to how to retain Millennials.  Recent studies show that more than 50% of Millennials who grew up in church have left.  Churches are innovating to accommodate young people, including new programs, facilities, retreats, activities and events.  Even many aging churches, aware that kids are their future, have become more open to tweaking traditional services and music to prevent their children from “aging out”.  Countless pastors have hired consultants and purchased books written by “experts” offering church rejuvenation strategies.

Where Would Jesus Be (WWJB)?

In our last post, we looked at “What Did Jesus Say?” in response to questions about the role of compassion in evangelism.   We’ve heard many times, “What Would Jesus Do?” (WWJD), wondering how He would respond to a situation we’re facing.  But have you ever considered “Where Would Jesus Be?” (WWJB) if He were walking the earth today?  We’re going to examine that question in this post, and do so exactly in the same way we determined what Jesus would say or do – by looking at His life,

Jesus’ Church Growth Model – A Case Study

You may have been caught off guard last week by our contention that The Salvation Army is the “model” church.  However, the good news is that following the example of Jesus, His disciples and the early church of leading with compassion and then telling people who He is doesn’t require your church to open a homeless shelter or an addiction recovery center on campus.

In fact, as you’ll see today,

The Model Church (You’ll Never Guess Who…)

Last week we wrapped up our series on Selfism by sharing our belief that Christ will #EndSelfism through His Church.  However, it’s unlikely the Lord will use churches that practice Selfism (i.e. seeking growth by appealing to Selfist interests) to #EndSelfism.  In other words, churches won’t transform lives and cities if they’re reluctant to challenge congregants to step out of their comfort zones to evangelize, disciple, serve the poor, and take responsibility for being the “church” personified.
