Takeaways for Leaders:


The first question to ask yourself when it comes to your church’s growth:


Are guests showing? 


So many of our growth obstacles come from knowing if guests are showing up. About 10% attrition is normal for a church, so statistically, you need 120 new guests showing up to maintain attendance at 400 a week.


The quality of your worship experience matters when it comes to getting guests to stick around. Create an environment where guests want to invite others to your church. 


Have your leadership and staff lead the way in creating an invite culture. Focus on strengthening your family ministries that add value to the lives of the kids. Be authentic and speak a language that the culture understands.
