Strengthening Your Church

Online Course - Individual
  • Approximate Time Commitment: 2 hours

Local churches need a clear vision statement so that they can grow stronger and can have significant impact on its community for the Glory of God. This course bundle by Multiplication Network Ministries will provide an overview of some of the key issues in church growth and development.

This course bundle is based on the ‘Strengthening Your Church Workshop’ offered by Multiplication Network Ministries, and has been expanded into a book and an online survey called, ‘Take Your Church’s Pulse: 10 Vital Signs of a Healthy Church’.

After overviewing some of the key issues in church growth and development, you will be introduced to ten key areas to care for in the life and mission of a local congregation. This consists of five key commitments and five key functions. It also invites participants to see the church as a system, empowered by the Spirit, which can have a significant impact on its community for the Glory of God.

The intended audience for the course is any pastor, leader, or church member who is interested in having healthy conversations with others to strengthen his or her community of faith, even before church planting starts.

It is our prayer that your faith community might find joy and purpose in working through this content by having vigorous conversations that lead to meaningful change and healthy congregations.
