Every Monday I post one of The Basics. The Basics are simple steps every church can take to grow. They are the same steps that led my church from 87 people in attendance to over 700. These steps have helped my church see hundreds of people saved and baptized in just a few short years. Most of these steps you can take this week without even having a board meeting. These are The Basics.
Ministry can be overwhelming, especially if you’re the only person on staff at a church or you’re bi-vocational. You quickly learn there are not enough hours in the week to accomplish everything that needs to get done.
You would love to see your church grow, but you just don’t have the time or energy it would take to make it happen. You may even find yourself thinking, “If I just had the money to hire one person, it would make a world of difference.”
If you feel like that, I have good news for you. The amount of ministry resources available to you today is incredible. If you have access to the internet, you have access to an unlimited amount of church staff, and in most cases, you don’t even have to pay them. You just need to know where to look.
