3 Church Growth Triggers For Your 21st Century Church

As a pastor or church leader you have been uniquely called to lead and grow God’s church.

He has placed a vision in your heart, a purpose for your church, and a desire to impact lives in your local community.

At GrowChurch, we believe that God wants to use you to increase the influence and reach of your church and we are here to support you with the training and resources you need to break through and take your ministry to the next level.

Let’s dive right in and explore three powerful church growth triggers that can kick-start your church’s growth this year.

1. Preach Better Sermons

The impact of preaching on church growth cannot be underestimated.

According to a recent study by Thom Rainer, a significant majority of unchurched individuals choose a church based on the pastor and the messages they deliver.

Your sermon holds the power to attract new visitors, engage your congregation and ultimately drive church growth.

It surpasses any advertising or outreach efforts in its influence on potential attendees.

Investing in yourself as a preacher is not only a wise decision but also one of the most effective ways to grow your church.

By continually refining your preaching skills, you can effectively communicate the timeless message of the Gospel in a compelling way that connects.

For pastors looking to improve their preaching, I highly recommend Preaching Donkey’s Killer Sermons Academy.

This is by far the best preaching course I have come across with over 10 hours of in-depth step-by-step training.

2. Increase Regular Giving

Get more people to tithe and you’ll have more money for ministry.

Let’s face it, consistent and reliable income is essential for the health and growth of your church.

While fundraisers and capital campaigns can provide a boost, sustained growth comes from increasing regular giving.

There are a few ways you can create a culture of generosity in your church:

You could preach a monthly sermon series about money.

Here’s a free done-for-you 4-week series you can use.

And if you’re not already, you can include an offering talk in your Sunday service.

3. Recruit More Volunteers

As a pastor, you can’t do it all on your own.

And you shouldn’t.

Paul reminds us in Ephesians 4:12 that pastors are called to equip people for the work of the ministry.

By recruiting, training, and empowering volunteers, your church can have a far-reaching impact.

The church is a volunteer organization where individuals passionately give their time because they believe in the vision of the church and in you as their leader.

Instead of recruiting volunteers only when there’s an immediate need, create a year-round system to involve more people in meaningful service.

3 Church Growth Triggers: The Bottom Line

As we’ve explored these three church growth triggers, it’s clear that intentionally focusing on these 3 main areas of ministry can and will lead to significant church growth and impact.

By prioritising the quality of your preaching, increasing regular giving and recruiting more volunteers, you’ll have a strong foundation for a thriving and flourishing church community.
