Knowing how to grow your church will also aid in your recruitment efforts to find the individuals and families with whom you can share 90%().

    The main thing that the visitors to your church want to know when they walk in the door is that they are welcome there. They want to feel comfortable, at ease, and wanted. If this means we need to adapt ourselves and change our habits to meet their need, then so be it. It is God’s design and will that our churches grow and multiply! This is seen clearly in the early church model. John – “I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain.. Acts – “Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”Author: Dr. Gary Linton.

    If you can get a small group of people to help you with this task, then you would only have to miss 1 or 2 church services a month to give the congregants some peace of mind while learning about the Lord. I trust that these 20 ways to serve at church are a good start to helping you see things you can do in your local church ministry.   I want my church to grow. You have to believe in your heart that God wants your church to grow, but then there’s another decision. This is an alignment decision. It’s when I want my church to grow. It moves from God, it moves from the holy to me, where I say, “I want this. I want what God wants.” That’s really what God’s will is.
