There are many ways to sink a church. Here are ten ways to be sure you stay submerged.
Top 10 WORST ideas in growing a church…
- Never think about what comes next in making any decision.
- Belief that technology is evil!
- Belief that technology will save you!
- Prayer? What prayer?
- The status quo is preferred to the unknown. Duh!
- People feeling good about each other and themselves is a sign of success. Can we sing “Kumbaya” now?
- Appeasement really seemed like a decent idea at the time. Oops.
- No one ever mentioned that the leaders had to practice what they preached.
- Remember the glory days? Well, they are gone now.
- We don’t need to grow. Numbers are evil and it’s the “quality” that counts, not reaching new people!
