5 Good Reasons a Church Should Close

So many leaders who try to break it either get stuck at 150-250 in attendance or burned out in the process of trying.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Believe it or not, the reasons most churches never break 200 aren’t spiritual reasons, they’re practical reasons. Strategic reasons.

I’ve been through this journey personally.

As I mentioned above, I began ministry with a dying church of six people. By God’s grace, we saw it grow, and I led through the 200 barrier to eventually lead a church of over 1,000. I took good notes, and in the course, I share practical strategies that worked not just for us, but which I’ve seen work for hundreds of other leaders too.

I believe these eight doable strategies can help you too, and that’s what this course is all about. The workbook will also become your action plan to help you determine your next steps in each critical area as a church.
