Growing a Church or Impacting a Community?

As a pastor, I know the reality of the “business” of the church. Obviously no church can survive without support from the people who decide to call that church their home base and show it by giving tithes and offering. In that regard, I know there are countless churches asking god to help them grow their church and to give them innovative ideas so they can stand out amongst the rest of “them” – them meaning other churches in the neighborhood because the goal is to have more money to do more “church”, so logically if you grow, you have more people giving and then “ideally” your money problems go away. And this is not even taking into consideration the churches that have pastors who live by the motto, “he who dies with the most toys, wins”. THOSE pastors are totally off but that is another post!

    Can’t separate the 2. If the pastor/teacher is doing their job-training the people- then knowledge and growth will occur at some rate known only to God. The HS will use that growth to affect others around the believer.
