Help Your Church Grow with ChurchGrowth.Net
So, how can we help your community church grow?
This can be done in a number of ways, but there are three main areas that you should focus on to grow your church:
- Attracting new members
- Keeping current members active
- Training new leaders
Growing your Church by attracting new members
The first and most important task of your church’s membership ministry is to bring in new members. Your goal should be to attract as many people as possible into a personal relationship with Christ, then help them connect with a home group or serve in some other capacity.
How you bring in new members is going to depend on the size of your church, the number of people you have working in this area, and the resources you have available to grow your congregation.
For example, if you have only one person working with new members, that person may do everything from answering questions about joining to handing out membership cards at worship
Make sure your church is welcoming and inclusive. Make people feel welcome, and show them that they belong. Second, offer interesting and engaging programs and activities. People want to be involved in something that matters, so give them opportunities to get involved. Third, create a strong online presence. Make sure your church is well-represented online, and one of the most effective is through social media.
Growing your Church by keeping current members active
Church attendance has been on the decline for years, but there are ways to combat this trend. One way is to focus on growing and retaining your current members. Here are four ways to keep your members active and engaged in your church.
1. Keep your church activities and events interesting and engaging.
2. Provide opportunities for spiritual growth and discipleship.
3. Make it easy for members to get involved and serve in the church.
4. Connect with members on a personal level.
Other things to consider…
First, make sure that your members feel valued. Ignoring active members is quickest way to kill the growth of your church. Thank them for their contributions, and let them know that their involvement is important. Second, give them opportunities to get involved. Offer a variety of activities and events that they can participate in. Third, keep communications open. Make sure that you are regularly communicating with your members, and be available for them when they reach out to you.
Growing your Church by training new leaders
One of the most important aspects of any church is the continuous development and training of new leaders. If a church isn’t growing, it’s dying. It’s that simple. And while many churches focus on recruitment, they often fail to provide the necessary training and development for new leaders.
There are a few things that your church can do to develop new leaders. First, you need to create an environment where people feel comfortable stepping up and taking on new roles. Second, you need to provide proper training and development for new leaders. Finally, you need to create opportunities for new leaders
There are many methods for training new leaders. One of the most effective is to create a leadership development program. This program should include a curriculum that covers the essential skills and knowledge needed to lead a church. It should also include a mentorship program that pairs new leaders with experienced mentors.
