Thom Rainer gives seven indispensable characteristics of churches that move from decline to growth.
Your church’s vision is all about what is possible, all about the future potential.
Leaders who are willing to reconsider the methods to preserve the mission are usually the ones who succeed long term.
"Church which are rapidly growing, and which maintain that growth, place a premium on intentional and strategic leadership." Here's what that looks like.

Thom Rainer: "Pastors often take 10 to 20 hours to prepare a sermon. And then they hear one of these sentences."
"These essentials may look different for each youth ministry, but they should always be practiced in some way, shape or form."
"There are some trends I see that are good and positive, and deserve celebration and affirmation."

"We must seek God for his leadership, both in preparation and in delivering the worship leading we prepare."
