10 Reasons Your Church Isn’t Growing

As a pastor’s wife for over seventeen years, I have worshipped with larger churches and smaller churches, those who wear three-piece suits and those that wear overalls after tending their fields as farmers. Although I don’t have a magic formula when it comes to church growth, I have come to one sobering realization: growth doesn‘t always have to do with numbers.

Christians often judge their worth and value on how many congregants fill up the pews each week, but God judges hearts. A full church service doesn’t always mean transformation is taking place.

This article addresses both numerical growth and transformative growth.
