Leading a High Impact Church

6-months, Limited to 12 people

"We will learn together what God must do “in us” and “through us” to develop and cultivate a high impact church."



Session Overview

Helping ministry leaders learn what only they can and must do, and what their ministry must do to become a High Impact Church. A high impact church has three characteristics:

1) A steady flow of lost people coming to Christ.

2) Found people experiencing genuine Christlike life change to maturity.

3) The church/ministry is meeting one of the deepest needs in the community.

With a goal to encourage and empower pastors to grow a High Impact Church, we will dispel the myths of church growth:

Myth #1: You have to have a certain kind of personality.

Myth #2: You have to have a certain style of music.

Myth #3: You have to follow certain models.

Myth #4: You must make your church like those mentioned above.

6 Sessions

1. The Law of Purpose - Growing churches know the purpose of the Church and the purpose of their church within their sphere of influence.

2. The Law of Expectation - Growing churches believe that growth is normal, predictable, supernatural and imperative for them a a congregation.  The “status quo” is not an option.

3. The Law of Design - Growing churches empower leaders to equip the saints and expect every member to function as a minister.

4. The Law of Liberation - Growing churches train their members to discover and deploy their spiritual gifts and passion both within and outside the church.

5. The Law of Dependency - Growing churches are characterized by regular and spontaneous times of prayer, fasting and genuine repentance both corporately and among individuals as a natural part of their culture.

6. The Law of Structure - Growing churches understand the role of various size groups (large, medium, small) within the church and have learned to recognize predictable plateaus within each sizes and how to break through those sociological barriers to growth.
