Today we had our leadership seminar with Pastor David Plank. He inspired and challenged us to go to another level as a church. He talked about hitting the wall in church growth. Studies have shown that there are growth barriers. We are currently experiencing the 100 barrier. It is our goal to break 100 in regular attendance within the next 18 months. I believe that this is doable as well as within our reach.
He talked about the ways to break that barrier:
Remember the key to what Pastor Plank said, “it is up to all of us to build the church and carry it to another level.”
God is certainly up to something in our congregation. I can see God actively working in so many lives and the growth of our church has already begun. We cannot lose sight of what God is doing and what God wants to do. He desires Nederland First Assembly to impact our community and every one of us has a part to play.
If you were not able to attend the training today, there will be CD’s available.
