Becoming a Healthier Church
Have you ever read a medical book that describes human diseases? If you’re prone to hypochondria, I don’t recommend it! Hundreds of things can go wrong with both the human body and the church. When your body isn’t working properly, you don’t feel right. When your church isn’t working properly, most members aren’t enthusiastic about it because it isn’t very relevant to their everyday lives. The enthusiasm level of lay leaders in Eastern Regional Conference churches that took Natural Church Development surveys predicted the level of church health more accurately than any other single factor. Church health and enthusiasm are joined at the hip. Healthy, enthusiastic churches meet the needs of those both inside and outside their walls. The following topics are dedicated to helping you improve your church’s health and, with it, your enthusiasm.
