Five Best Practices That Help Churches Advance Spirtual Growth

 

An excerpt from the book Rise, available now at Navpress.com 

GET PEOPLE MOVING

Jump-start newcomers with clear next steps by offering a spiritual “on-ramp” (like Alpha). Make the discipleship path and destination clear.

EMBED THE BIBLE IN EVERYTHING

Make Scripture the heart of the church culture. Take away people’s excuses by doing whatever you can to make Bible engagement easy.

CREATE OWNERSHIP

Help people “own” the vision of the church. Use your small group system to empower and equip them to grow as leaders.

PASTOR THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

Make the local community your mission field by partnering with other churches and nonprofits to tackle local problems.

CHRIST-CENTERED LEADERSHIP

Surrender all leadership dilemmas and decisions to Christ. Humility and transparency are key.
