Change is me,change is now! The problem with my church is that they are desperate for change, but are going about it the wrong way. Jesus needs to be lifted up, and He will draw all people to Himself.
What are "disagrees"?
My church is being inundated with a false gospel and are trying to get grants to become a community centre, to teach music, art etc, and an exercise that involves practices from other religions. Even a change of name has been pushed on us. It is a church known for helping people, yet it is still not growing. For example, here are 7 signs your church will never change. I have yet to meet a lead Pastor who is genuinely living both within and beyond the Christian bubble. Even the best, most passionate, qualified. Find a way to live the life you are encouraging your congreagationanto live!
Do something with your schedule that puts you in places where connection and community are forged through shared experience so friendship with those unlike ourself can grow.
"some things never change" translation into French
Please permit me to be really spiritual. Trends that come on the scene may or may not be good for the church.
I was a staff pastor in a fairly large church. A trend came along for cell groups. The pastor was caught up so much that after checking out the success in other churches decided to proceed with the switch. This church was established as a program base church and the change eventually did not work as projected.
Now for the spiritual part make NO changes without the direction of the Holy Spirit. Where God guides He provides. I can speak by experience. I was in the midst of the change and it did not work. Pray, pray,pray. I have check their website and the number of groups are about the same when I was a pastor for around 12 groups. One thing that might help with change is linking it to the past. As in , This church has always been a frontrunner in …….
Often we want to build on our past of great outreach, education, and worship but we forget that means to let go, adapt and grow. We hang on to things of the past when we merely need to hang on to the passion and values we want to keep. Trying to see things from the vantage point of the committed, integrated, typically non-whining congregant can be eye-opening.
Note—for context of my comments: I am 62, been at my church for 25 years; have taken the church through 3 expansions of current facilities, 1 move out of the facility and then back in again during a 4th expansion, and then a wholesale move to another property all together all to facilitate growth. The most important thing I wrote above is keeping people focused on the real purpose of church; it does wonders for squawking…. Carey thanks for another great post.
As a layperson with a heart for serving pastors, innovation, or at least a willingness to be courageous enough to try and innovate is so rare. When I find one who is willing to risk the past for a preferred future, especially one that is led by the Spirit, it is incredibly inspiring and magnetic. This is us!

Let me know how we can make them even more portable. I really appreciate this post Carey. As always you share some great wisdom. I greatly appreciate how you encourage so many to keep going even in the midst of discouragement. Not giving up is definitely a key ingredient to progress, thanks for the reminders. Any church that is focusing on its own growth is addressing the wrong problem. I can find no Biblical warrant for wasting effort and resources on church growth. There is, however, a specific commission to grow the Church Universal. If your church reaches unchurched people for Christ and they all join other churches, has your church failed?
If your church does that every year until all the members die and the church closes, did it fail?
