HighPower eNews -- March 2013

"Power Tools for Pastors"

Feel free to forward this to a friend!

A Word from Bill

I have a special word to the Pastors who received HighPower eNews each month. As a fellow pastor, you and I both know that the goal as a pastor is that the church would be "Well Fed & Well Led". At HPR, it is our goal to make it easy for you to help your church to be Well Led. That is, by providing software and power tools, we can help your ministry to be organized and Well Led. This will free up more of your time to make cetain that your church is also Well Fed.

So our mission is to help you with the Well Led part, and then it is up to you to take care of the Well Fed portion.

I trust that as you try out the various software and coaching options you will find this to be true.

SPECIAL FOCUS THIS MONTH: Ministry Master Beta-Testers Needed. Ministry Master helps you to track your people's Gifts, Positions, and Skills (GPS). If you would like to receive a free copy of this software, then sign up to be a beta-tester. That means that you try out the software, and answer a series of emails for us, and in one month, you can have your own free copy.

Sign up for that here.

God's best to you and your ministry!

Dr. Bill Miller

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS:

Take a look at these two Factoids

 

Factoid #1: “…in another question, we asked, "Did you have occasion to talk about your religious faith in the workplace?" Fourty–eight percent said they had – almost half!” Source: (George Gallup, THE NEXT AMERICAN SPIRITUALITY, 2000, p. 72.)


Factoid #2: “Relationships are also a major reason people affiliate with churches in our culture. In our own studies we have confirmed what McGavran originally called the bridges of God. Namely, that 75% – 90% of all people come into Christian faith and active church involvement as a result of a relationship with a trusted friend, neighbor, or relative.” Source: (Arn, Charles. Journal of The American Society for Church Growth. Vol. 6, 1995, p.76. )

These and other Factoids can be found at ChurchGrowth Factoids

  • Why You Should be Tracking Conversion Growth-- Many pastors are interested in church growth, but not as many pastors track conversion growth. Why is that? When Christ gave us the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, He said: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." The key phrase of course is "Make Disciples". You can't make disciples without conversion growth. So why don't more pastors count conversions? Read more..

Free Coaching Resources

NEW Resources:

We have a whole new layout of the list of Coaching Resources for your personal ministry within your local church. This is free to any and all Pastors. Below are two sample resources for you. Also visit here for the complete list.

Three Month Ministry Coaching Plan -- Unlike a typical coaching relationship, the focus will be on one key project or problem or obstacle which needs to be overcome. Because of the nature of the time-span (3 months), the project will need to be one which can reasonably be started and initial actions completed before the three-month span is over. This can be determined during the initial free review session. Read more..

Free Coaching Session - A lot of pastors have not experienced the power of coaching yet. I’ve been a believer and a practitioner of coaching for many years now. it is a powerful tool to help individuals, and pastors, to reach their goals.
