Churches Shouldn’t Use Business Survival Tactics

When times get tough, most churches respond with the same survival tactics used by struggling businesses.  Today, we explore the fifth and final reason why churches come down with a cold – the desire to Survive.

The life cycle of a business begins with great hope and anticipation, a keen awareness of market needs and commitment to satisfying those needs.  When that laser focus on training employees to pursue and serve target customers breeds success,

Why Christianity Has Lost Its Appeal

A 4th sign your church is coming down with a cold is Compromise. When we talk about treating members as “customers”, people naturally think of prosperity churches or megachurches.  However in many ways the temptations to treat members as “customers” are even greater within a small or young church.

In other words, defining the wrong “customer” is less about relying on “attractional” models and more about succumbing to pastoral pressures.

Nearly All Organizations Partner – Why Don’t Churches?

Is your church decentralized, empowering disciples?  Or is it depersonalized, entrusting responsibility for being “church” to the few rather than to many?  A third way to know if your church is healthy or coming down with a cold is the degree to which it has internalized.  In other words, has it become an entity unto itself, operating independently, or is it still engaged with other organizations?

Few Churches Play to an Audience of One

Healthy church members play to an audience of One (God).  They’re consumed, not consumers.  Their engagement in evangelism doesn’t stop with inviting non-believing friends to church.  Their dedication to discipleship doesn’t end with sermons and small groups.

Healthy church leaders play to an audience of One.  They disciple; they don’t perform.  They decrease so Jesus can increase.  They realize the veil has been torn and don’t dare insert themselves or the institutional church between saved and Savior.

Is Your Church Coming Down with a Cold?

Most churches are born healthy.  Church plants are small, underfunded, and grow slowly at first – but they’re normally healthy.  How can that be?  That doesn’t sound like the description of a healthy organization.  Don’t most pastors and church consultants associate size, budget and growth with health?

However, the Bible does not define church as an institution but as collective and worldwide bodies of believers.  Therefore, church health is not a measure of its organizational characteristics but of how healthy its members are.

How (Not) to Rejuvenate an Aging Church

Society has been programmed to associate health with youth.  The underlying message of countless television and magazine ads today is that their products will make you look or feel younger.  Men’s health publications are filled with “ED” and “Low T” remedies.  Skin care and hormone replacement therapy options dominate the pages of women’s health web sites.  Cosmetics and plastic surgeries promise surface-level reversal of the vagaries of time and age – making us feel better about ourselves even when we aren’t actually any healthier.
