I’m hosting a two-week pastors Dare to Grow roundtable on the book of Acts. 

Most pastors I know want their church to grow. 

But do you ever get the sense others think that desire is somehow…bad? 

You want more people to know Jesus. And you especially want the people who were part of your church before the pandemic to still be a part of your church today.

But you wrestle internally because lots of voices say “Church growth is wrong. It’s egotistical. Fake. Don’t focus so much on the numbers. Big is bad.” As if somehow wanting to see more people become part of your congregation is theologically wrong.

But here’s the thing – wanting your church to grow is not something evil. It doesn’t mean you’ve sold out or want to water down the Gospel.

Jesus wants His Church to grow. He gave us the Book of Acts as a record for how early church leaders, being led by and empowered by the Holy Spirit, saw growth in exponential numbers.

You and I don’t convert people to follow Jesus. That’s God’s job.

But He has asked us to lead the local church. And we certainly can learn from the early Church about key practices and behaviors that resulted in people following Jesus, even and especially in hostile cultures.

Wanting your church to grow is not an unholy desire. It’s a God-given and good desire. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. 

God gave us a blueprint for how to grow the local church in the Book of Acts. It’s a blueprint that still applies today. Especially today. 

This is why I’m hosting a pastors Dare to Grow roundtable on the book of Acts. We’ll meet for two one-hour sessions and unpack 7 key marks of the early church that provide practical steps for congregations to take in reaching their community. 

You’ll leave excited and energized, with ideas for sermons, Bible studies, and leadership decisions. All are based on the book of Acts. All that creates clarity and unity for godly growth. 

Don’t miss out. Courage. Camaraderie. Practical Help. Register now.
