Leading a church is difficult. There’s pressure from many sources.
You may see agendas pushed by the church denomination, other leaders within the church, church members, and many other sources.
There’s always something someone wants you to be doing and this causes a conflict of direction within the church. Because of this, we see church leaders making mistakes in areas that are deadly to a church.
1. Church growth: While I believe a church that is spreading the good word should grow in size, there’s also the fact some churches can only grow to a certain size.
To place a demand that a church continues to grow and reach certain attendance goals will not help the church.
Rather than focusing on numbers, focus on the spiritual growth of your congregation. This is what truly matters, not the size of the church but the impact that has been made in the lives of the men and women you teach.
