Healthy Churches

This is a blogpost from Dr. Thom Rainer:

The 10 signs of healthy churches 10 years from now are:
1.They have the same pastor they did ten years ago.

2.The pastor, staff, and church members have a decade of calling to the local community.

3.The church will be as diverse as the community.

4.The church will have responded to its international mission field in its own backyard for ten years.

5.The church will have had a consistent and strategic outward focus for a decade.

6.All new members the past ten years will have attended a new members’ class.

7.The church will have seen the cultural changes of the decade as opportunities rather than threats.

8.At least 80 percent of the worship attendance will have moved to a small group over the decade.

9.At least 50 percent of the attendance will have invited at least four people to church each year.

10.Every year for ten years these churches will have become more joyous and fun.

Stay in The Light, 1 John 1:7,

Pastor Larry
