A Word from Bill

Dear Pastors,

This month's Factoids are all about you!

You are the critical factor, in addition to the Holy Spirit, in your church's growth.

I believe God is interested in reaching many more people for Christ through your church.

But according to much study on the topic, often the limiting factor is your own ability to lead your church to growth. I know this is a hard and tricky subject, but what can you as Pastor do to follow the Holy Spirit's leading and guide your church to the future God has for you?

This is food for thought and prayer, and learning and effort.

We can help you with the learning, and tools, and by God's grace you can take it from there.

Blessings in Christ,

Dr. Bill

A to Z Spiritual Gifts Bible Study and Inventory

"Spiritual Gifts"

The A to Z Spiritual Gifts Bible Study and Inventory is a complete solution to study, understand, and discover your spiritual gifts.



Take a look at these two Factoids


Factoid #1: “The pastors in 26 percent of growing churches said that they were pacesetters to a very great extent, as compared to only 10 percent of the pastors in plateaued churches and 7 percent of the pastors of declining churches.” Source: (“Church Growth Principles", C. Kirk Hadaway, Nashville: Broadman Press, 1991, p. 84)

Factoid #2: “Peter Wagner's statement, in America, the primary catalytic factor for church growth in a local church is the pastor. Lyle Schaller notes, pastoral leadership is a critical factor in church growth.”>Source: (“Church Growth Principles”, C. Kirk Hadaway, Nashville: Broadman Press, 1991, p. 74)

  • Sermon Symmetry -- Symmetry is a description of how you write your Main Points. “Symmetry” means “balanced proportions”. If your sermon displays symmetry, it’s main points will be balanced and proportionate. That is, each main point will seem to have an equal and valuable relationship with all of the other main points. No main point will dominate, either in terms of importance, impact, or the amount of time you spend on it. Read more..
