Some churches grow rapidly only to hit a ceiling Other churches have experienced declining or static attendance many of them for decades Frustrated pastors and church leaders want growth methods that work but without adding to pastoral fatigue How to Break Growth Barriers argues that growth comes when effective leadership and lay empowerment skills work hand in hand This requires a shift of focus from the shepherd as the primary caregiver to shepherd as developer and coach of many caregivers The authors show pastors how to communicate a vision for the future and then how to lead the congregation into the paradigms necessary for potentially limitless growth The strategies found in this book are not only tried and true and taken from a biblical perspective of a harvest vision They re also newly updated to reflect our changing culture including helpful charts and checklists for self evaluation
