A Word from Bill

Hi Friends in Christ,

The Church is the hope of the World and the church needs gifted, godly leaders who can believe God for great things and then lead the church forward to achieve those things.

Take a look at our two Church Growth Factoids this month, both on Vision and on Leadership and Organization. As we approach the beginning of the new ministry year, my prayer for you is that you have a group of people on your leadership team with a nice mix of spiritual gifts, some with vision, some with leadership and some with organization/administration. Together, God can use you to reach your world for Christ.

We have the resources to help you in your mission. Stop in and look around.

Godís best to you and your Church,

Dr. Bill

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS

CHURCH GROWTH FACTOIDS:

Take a look at these two Factoids

 

Factoid #1: “For instance, 40 percent of growing church pastors say that vision is one of their traits to a very great extent as compared to only 16 percent of plateaued church pastors… !” Source: (Church Growth Principles”, C. Kirk Hadaway, Nashville: Broadman Press, 1991, p. 83)


Factoid #2: “It is interesting that 68 percent of all Christians with this [leadership] gift also have the gift of organization” Source: (Schwarz, Christian. The Three Colors of Ministry. St. Charles, IL: ChurchSmart Resources, 2001, p. 118.)

These and other Factoids can be found at ChurchGrowth Factoids

  • Developing Apprentice Leaders -- One of the toughest jobs that I believe exist in the local church, but also one of the most important ones, is developing leadership apprentices who are qualified to take over and lead an existing ministry. Every church has ministries which somebody needs to lead. In many cases, there is one person leading the ministry and if s/he leaves, the ministry will be scrambling to find a replacement. Jesus has taught us a better way, and there is good guidance in Scripture for how this is done. Read more..

Worst of Sinners – – Based on 1 Timothy 1:12-17. Before he became Paul, apostle and tireless missionary to the Gentiles, he was Saul of Tarsus, a zealous persecutor of Christians.
