A Word from Bill

Dear Pastors,

"Happy New 2014 to you!"

May God bless your ministry in this New Year with success for the sake of Jesus.

Here is a great verse for the new year:

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. – Prov. 16:3

As you enter the new year, may God be your light shining your way, may Jesus be your hope and encouragement, and may the Holy Spirit be your source of power.

This month in the eNews, my HighPower blog is focused on "How to Set Great Goals" as you enter 2014.

Have you made your plans?

Do you know where you want to go in 2014?

Take some time, set aside half a day and think about your life and ministry.

My blog will help you set some great goals for your new year.

God’s Best to you in 2014!

~ Dr. Bill

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS:

Take a look at these two Factoids: 

Factoid #1: “…the pastors of 54 percent of growing churches said their members lean towards dreaming about the future” rather than “living in the past as compared to only 21 percent of plateaued churches…” Source: (“Church Growth Principles”, C. Kirk Hadaway, Nashville: Broadman Press, 1991, p. 96.)


Factoid #2: “No county in America has a greater percentage of churched persons today than a decade ago.” Source: (Arn, Charles. Journal of The American Society for Church Growth. Vol. 6, 1995, p.74. )

These and other Factoids can be found at ChurchGrowth Factoids
