Myth or fact? If we build a nice enough church, people will come to worship.We don?t need to plan for worship. It will happen naturally.The major ministry of the church is inside the church building. It?s OK if children?s Sabbath school classrooms are overcrowded. If we can get a top-name evangelist to speak at our church, we?d see great things happen. Myths. All myths. If you believe any of these statements are true, you aren?t the only one. Many people have held to these and other common myths that stunt church growth. In Help! I Want My Church to Grow, Pastor David Ripley exposes the 31 most widespread misconceptions that keep churches from growing into vibrant communities. Drawing from more than 20 years of pastoral experience, Ripley identifies pitfalls and offers principles that will attract people to your church. Each section of the book includes discussion questions, making it invaluable for small group studies or leadership meetings. A must-read for church members and leaders, this book will introduce you to myth-busting ideas that will expand God?s kingdom right in your very own church.
