What are the key characteristics of a growing church?

In this episode, Pastors Chris and Matt discuss the importance of taking inventory and detecting problems within your church early. They introduce a new health assessment tool from GrowLeader and share the eight qualities that all growing churches possess, including passionate spirituality, gift-oriented ministry, empowering leadership, functional structures, inspiring worship, holistic small groups, need-oriented evangelism, and loving relationships.

This is a great episode to share with your team so we can all be looking for areas we can improve to reach more people!
