When church leaders think about growth, they default to measuring people's participation, not their production.
I'm working with Cory Hartman on an exciting new project, and we want to try out a portion of our most important thinking with the readers of my blog.
Are you ready? Here it is—one table that sums up a century of church growth:
I'm not adding explanation at this point, because I want to learn from you how well the table explains itself. Here are my questions:
- How does this table shed more light on what you have already experienced, observed, and learned?
- If we were looking at it together in the same room, what would you ask me about it?
Let Cory and me know what you think. We appreciate your insights!
