Tips to Start Well with The Gospel Project

As we turn over the calendar pages (does anyone really use paper calendars these days?), we are getting more and more excited about the new cycle of The Gospel Project for Kids starting! We are just days away from the suggested first use Sunday in September. With that said, we also know of churches who have already begun using the materials, so we are so glad to know that the new material we have worked so hard on is finally being used to point kids to Christ.
This seems like the perfect time then to share a few quick tips to start well for those who are using this material for the first time and for those who are continuing from the first cycle.

Ten More Ways Churches Drive Away First-time Guests

By Thom S. Rainer

November 1, 2014, I wrote a blog post about ten ways churches drive away first-time guests. You can read the article here. Those top ten ways came from an informal Twitter poll. I was surprised by the number of responses we received for both the poll and the blog post.
Of course, there were many more responses than the original ten. I have saved the other responses for nearly a year. The ten items I list below actually represent the second ten most frequent responses. From my perspective, these second-tier responses are somewhat of a surprise. They might be, nevertheless, helpful to you and your church. Each of the ten items has a representative comment.
  1. The congregation was old. “When I looked at the age of those attending, I knew there wouldn’t be anything there for my children.”
  2. There was clutter everywhere. “The church building looked like a Goodwill store for Bibles, books, umbrellas, and clothes. I did not want to return.”
  3. People were gathered in cliques talking to each other. “I could tell before the service that I didn’t belong to their club.”
  4. People got the aisle seats first. “I had to climb over eight people to get a seat. They seemed disgusted I was there.”
  5. There was inadequate signage for people with small children. “From the parking lot to the front door to the preschool area, I had no idea where to go. It was frustrating.”
  6. There was no worship guide or bulletin. “I saved the bulletins from the churches I visited. If a church did not have one, I forgot all about it.”
  7. The check in process for children was slow and disorganized. “My kids were screaming the whole time; I’m not going back.”
  8. There were memorial plaques everywhere. “They were on the pews, the tables, the organ, the piano, and the windows. It was creepy. I felt like I was in a funeral home.”
  9. The service did not start on time. “My family rushed to get there on time, but the service started over ten minutes late. No one seemed to know what they were doing.”
  10. People were saving seats. “They might as well had a sign that said, ‘You are not welcome near me.’”
Keep in mind, these comments are second-tier responses. But they represent many people. They just might represent guests who won’t return to your church.

A Look at Church Websites

by Jeremy Smith

In May, I completed an initial research project that I hope will begin to create a more wonderful foundation for everything that churches do digitally. I realize that many churches and Christians want to have a better digital ministry to impact more people more effectively. The problem is that we do not fully understand how people are already using the Internet for ministry. Sure, I could spout a bunch of data for you, but nearly all of that data is for businesses that do not have a ministry or faith feature. And for those that are based on churches or ministry, many of the results are at least five years old. So I created some baseline data results from the project in my new e-book “By The Numbers” which looks at what the 100 largest churches in America are doing online. (It should be noted that a follow up e-book will be coming out before the end of the year.)
The data from our research identifies some very key points with regards to church websites. Here are the specific data points and a short infographic.
  • 98% of the churches had a website that was able to load.
  • 100% of churches with a website posted their physical address on their website, while 99% of them included their phone number.
  • 69% of churches had a page on their website titled “About Us” or “About.”
  • 76% of churches had a page on their website titled “Contact Us” or “Contact.”
  • 97% of churches had a ministry page or section on their website.
It should be noted that several churches may have a version of an About Us page titled “I’m New,” “What We Believe” or similar pages which can hint to the lower-than-expected percentage. Even after extending the timeframe to five minutes per church, several times I found myself clicking through numerous pages to never find what I wanted.
The question that deserves asking is “How many times are you going to make your viewers click and wait before they find some information about your church and how long do you think they are willing to tolerate?”
There are some differences on how churches with satellite campuses manage their website. Several of them will give distinct website platforms as a category of the main website. It is clear we have begun to make some church websites too complex.
Connecting Online and Offline
Below is a percentage of churches that have their physical address shared online as well as churches that have a dedicated page titled “About Us” or “Contact Us.”
Frankly, I thought an About Us and a Contact Us page would be no-brainers. While the physical address and phone number are present on nearly all websites, staff profiles are not always included, as it is more convenient to have that information available on a separate page or to send via email instead.
As a parent of an infant, I need to know two different things before I am even willing to entertain the idea of going to your church, let alone if I plan to join you as a member. First of all, do you have events and activities for my children that are age appropriate? Secondly, how are you going to keep them safe and me in the loop? While I did not get into the nitty gritty of what type of content was being displayed (more data to gather in the future), it was very encouraging to see that at least some content was being delivered about youth, children and adult ministries. Some of the best had very detailed, high-level navigation that made searching very simple to do. Yet more could have been and needs to be supplied for new visitors to your site and your church.
So my challenge to you is to check your website and see if the necessary information is on your site. Further, I suggest you find someone who has never been to your site and let them play with it to see if it is too complex or missing something you may have missed. Leave all bias at the door and let them inform you so your digital ministry can grow.

Jeremy is a blogger on his own site as well as a staff writer forChurchMag where he writes on social media, tech for ministry, and integrating digital and faith together.

Eight Common Characteristics of Successful Church Revitalizations


There is one type of church revitalization that is more successful than all others. The church closes its doors for a season, and then re-opens, usually with a new name and new leadership. I know this approach is not an option for most of you, so I gathered data from the “other” category. This category includes churches that kept the same name and, for the most part, the same leadership.

Keep in mind, this information is not a step-by-step guide to revitalization. We offer that resource periodically. Make certain you are on our email list, and we will let you know the next time that training opens.
As I gathered the information for successful revitalizations, I noted eight common characteristics that took place in most of the congregations. Unfortunately, many leaders are not willing to make all the sacrifices these characteristics suggest. Those who will make the sacrifices, however, are often seeing blessings beyond what they anticipated.
  1. The pastor formed an alliance of key influencers in the church. This group is not informal, nor is it closed to others. It begins when the pastor identifies those in the church whose voices are most effective in leading others toward change. I cannot remember a revitalization effort that succeeded without an alliance.
  1. The alliance of influencers recognized the need for church revitalization and made a commitment to pray for it daily. Please don’t let the last part of the preceding sentence escape your notice. Each of the influencers committed to daily prayer for revitalization. They realized it could not take place in their power alone.
  1. The leaders and a growing number in the congregation made a commitment to move the church to look more like the community. Such a commitment naturally involves an outward focus, because declining churches are not reaching all segments of their communities. The leadership within the church begins to look at the demographics of their community. They are willing to face reality on where the church is falling short.
  1. The church began to confront the issue of sacred cows. I know of one church that had a two-hour “town hall” meeting of the members of the congregation. The leaders made a list of every preference and church activity they could recall. For example, one of the items on the list was “11 am worship.” They then labeled each activity as either biblically essential, contextual, or traditional.
  1. The leadership began to work with the congregation to form a clear and compelling vision. One church, an all Anglo congregation, cast a vision to have 20 percent Hispanics in the worship attendance in one year because the community was 40 percent Hispanic. They did not reach 20 percent in year one, but they did in year two.
  1. The leadership communicated a sense of urgency. One of the simplest yet most powerful communications of urgency I’ve heard is: “We change or we die.” Too many congregations are choosing to die because of their unwillingness to change.
  1. The leadership, particularly the pastor, was willing to endure a season of intense criticism. This point is often where revitalization efforts end. The critics can get nasty, and the criticisms can become intense. Many people simply get mad at the idea of change.
  1. The leadership of the church was willing to let go of members. I have never known a successful revitalization effort where members did not leave. Few leaders like to see members leave, but some churches have a “back door revival” before true revitalization can take place.
Nine of ten churches are either declining or growing so slowly they are not keeping up with the growth of the community. Many churches are just a few years away from dying and closing. Revitalization is an urgent need.

Free Training For Bible Study Leaders

One of the main ministrires of LifeWay Christian Resources is providing Bible studies for churches. In fact, it is the very resource on which LifeWay has been built for over 120 years. LifeWay offers three main lines of curriculum (along with numerous short term studies) for churches, each taking a specific starting point on the biblical text and going from there.

We know that the effectiveness of a Bible study, especially in a group context, is tied to the leader. Are they prepared? Do they understand the material? Can they answer questions about it?

We also know that training group leaders is a challenging thing to do because of time constraints, scheduling conflicts, varying experience levels, and more. So the question is: Are the leaders for your church’s groups well-prepared and ready to shepherd others?

In order to help churches effectively train their leaders Ministry Grid is offering free online video training. Leaders can watch a brief video tied to each session they will be going through and hear from those who helped create the lessons. We offer this session-by session training for all age levels. It will clarify the main points, questions, and challenging subjects.

10 Things Effective Churches Do Well

By Chuck Lawless

I’ve written posts for this site and my own that describe some of the negatives our church consulting teams and “spies” have found in churches. The goal of this post is to show some of the positives we’ve seen in different churches. The topics vary, but perhaps something will help you in your church.
  1. Greeters at every door. It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally every one of our team members is greeted when each of us intentionally enters a different door. Those churches are ready for guests.
  1. Strong security in the preschool/children’s areas. Sometimes our team members gain entrance to these area much too easily, but we’ve been in churches that physically halted our team from going beyond the boundaries. I’m pleased to report to the church that their security system worked in those cases.
  1. Name tags for everyone. Several folks disagreed with my suggestion about this topic in previous posts, but our team appreciates it when everyone can quickly learn names. Name tags simply make it easier for folks to have conversations with people they don’t know.
  1. Assurances about visitor’s cards. Again, I’ve written about why I likely would not complete a visitor’s card at your church. On the other hand, some churches have made it very clear up front – by saying, “We won’t bombard you with visits, phone calls, and emails, and we won’t embarrass you” – that they won’t put us on the spot. I’m willing to complete a card for those churches.
  1. Knowledge of the community. We do a demographic study of the church’s ministry area, but we don’t give that information to the church at first. Instead, we now first ask church leaders what they think the demographics will show about their community. Most leaders don’t know their community that well – but occasionally we meet leaders who clearly have already focused externally.
  1. General friendliness. Most churches, frankly, are not that friendly to our “spies.” They’re friendly, but primarily with people they already know. So, our team recognizes quickly when a church family has been trained to welcome everyone to their family gathering. Our team members are blessed when it does happen.
  1. Clear direction in the worship service events. Most of our “spies” are believers, but even they appreciate when the leader gives them direction in the Word (e.g., “the book of Malachi is the last book in the Old Testament; it’s about 2/3 of the way through your Bible. If you find the book of Matthew, just back up a book”), guidance for the offering, and direction for the Lord’s Supper.
  1. Biblical, applicational preaching. The best preaching, in our opinion, goes to the Word, expounds the Word, and helps us know how to apply its teaching past Sunday. Our hope is that our spies can quickly answer the question, “What do you need to do as a result of the biblical truth you learned today?” Sometimes they can.
  1. Intentional strategies for training teachers. The strongest churches recognize that God holds teachers accountable to high standards (James 3:1), and they prepare current and future teachers accordingly. These churches raise up their next generation of teachers and leaders.
  1. Clear master plan for facilities. You’ve seen the churches that had no master plan; their buildings are so different that you can tell a different leader was in charge for each structure. Churches with a clear master plan are usually thinking toward the future – and even beyond themselves.
How well does your church do in these areas?

Video-Enhanced Studies are Coming to

By Rob Tims
In September, an exciting new feature is coming to that will further equip group leaders to have transformational conversations and experiences in their groups. Not only will you have the ability to quickly build studies and series with strong original content, but you will also be able to enhance your study with exclusive video content from trusted Bible teachers. You will find excellent studies featuring speakers and authors like Beth Moore, Angela Thomas, Matt Chandler, and John Piper, and also gain exclusive Bible teaching from our discipleship partners (such as Darren Patrick at Journey Church in St. Louis, MO, and Matt Carter at Austin Stone in Austin, TX). And because video content should enhance your Bible study, not dominate it, a customizable discussion guide that interacts with the Bible and the video is included. Read more...

LifeWay partners with Kendrick brothers on ‘War Room’ resources

LifeWay Christian Resources has partnered with filmmakers Stephen and Alex Kendrick to provide churches with a suite of resources to accompany their latest film, “War Room,” which spotlights prayer, its power and purpose.
The movie, releasing in theaters Aug. 28, tells the story of a prayer warrior grandmother (played by Karen Abercrombie) who mentors a young mom (Priscilla Shirer) facing a troubled relationship with her husband (T.C. Stallings).
The impetus for the movie goes back to 2012, when Alex Kendrick, director and co-writer, said he and his brother felt led by God to “make a movie where we call the body of believers to pray” and to “fight in prayer.”
“If there ever was a time God’s people needed to plead with God for direction and intervention, it’s now,” Alex said. “We must make sure are right with Him and seeking His involvement in our culture, government, churches and families. We’re eroding to fast on too many levels.”
The film is accompanied by several resources from B&H Publishing Group and LifeWay including a book by the Kendrick brothers titled “The Battle Plan for Prayer,” and a book titled “Fervent” by Shirer, aNew York Times best-selling author who plays the lead character in the film. “Prayer Works: Prayer Training and Strategy for Kids and “Peter’s Perfect Prayer Place” are two children’s books written by the Kendricks.
For churches that want to go deeper in their understanding of prayer, LifeWay is releasing a “War Room Bible Study” and Church Campaign Kit, which includes the 5-week small group study, sermon outlines and promotional items.

Revitalizing your church

By Ronnie Floyd
Revitalizing a church is an ongoing process and experience, beginning with the pastor and continuing with the church. Without pastor revitalization, there will be no church revitalization. Both pastor and church are in need of continual revitalization.
We never arrive. Church revitalization is about the church becoming stronger and healthier. It is about penetrating your community and beyond with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The crisis is real
The vast majority of the 50,000-plus churches and congregations that comprise our Southern Baptist Convention are in need of revitalization. In 2013, LifeWay Research released a graphic that illustrated that no less than 74 percent of our churches are either plateaued or declining.
In many ways, all of our churches are in need of ongoing revitalization. In today's world of endless change, it is inescapable. We have to experience seasons that involve brutal honesty, leading us to re-create our churches and restore the hope that God can use our churches to reach our community.
9 strategic principles for revitalizing your church
1: CATCH the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Catching the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is our ONLY hope for revitalizing ourselves, our church, and influencing our communities. We can never forget that we were once lost and hopeless until we trusted in the reality that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and raised on the third day to give us forgiveness, power and hope.

Monday, August 24, 2015 Offers A Starting Point Close to Home

By Aaron Earls

Where can a church begin looking for the right Bible study materials? For some, it may be within the church itself.

Unique circumstances make churches different from each other. For most churches, those differences don’t require Bible study curriculum specifically designed for their situation. But some churches may require customized material.

Let’s say a church wants a study to accompany a sermon series or undergird a special church-wide campaign. Customized Bible studies haven’t always been readily available for most churches, according to Michael Kelley, director of Groups Ministry at LifeWay Christian Resources.

“Up until now,” Kelley said, “if a church needed curriculum written specifically for them, the only real option was to invest a significant amount of time and money in producing it themselves.”

Even for churches that had the resources to manage a project of this size, the work often suffered, Kelley said, “because the church is simply too pressed for time in all their areas of ministry.”

To solve that problem, Kelley and others at LifeWay developed, a web-based tool that allows churches to create and customize Bible studies for themselves. “With, a church can have customized content and still devote their energy to other areas of ministry,” Kelley said.

The site has more than 1,200 searchable studies on 400 topics from all 66 books of the Bible. If a passage or topic isn’t available, one of the best features of, according to Kelley, is that users can request a study at no additional charge and a LifeWay curriculum specialist will contact them within 48 hours. Users can even add church-specific logos and terminology to their Bible study templates.

5 Essential Elements of Transformational Small Groups

By Ed Stetzer

Transformational discipleship involves moving people from sitting in rows, where they are simply in proximity to one another, to sitting in circles. From there, they move into community with one another.
When Eric Geiger and I were writing Transformational Groups, we studied 2,300 churches sponsored by 15 denominations. Fewer than half of those churches said they had a plan for discipling people. Only 63 percent had someone responsible for the spiritual formation of children, students, and adults.
The majority of these churches weren’t satisfied with the state of discipleship or spiritual formation. We know there is a great level of dissatisfaction in many churches about where they are on the issue of discipleship, but what is the solution?
We also conducted a Transformational Discipleship study of more than 4,000 Protestant churchgoers in North America and asked them about spiritual formation. One of the five items most predictive for spiritual maturity was participation in a small class or group of adults such as a small group, Bible study, or adult Bible fellowship.
But what makes a small group thrive? Our studies discovered five elements of a transformational small-group environment: mission orientation, Word-driven mentality, multiplication mindset, stranger welcoming, and kingdom-focused.

Seven Steps Churches Are Taking to Replace the Stand-and-Greet Time

By Thom S. RaIner

I would have never expected the response to a topic that seemed so innocuous. On this blog many people were very vocal that they really didn’t like the stand-and-greet time during the worship services.

To be fair, there were some defenders of this practice. I was able to segment the hundreds of responses into three groups.
  • Guests: Overwhelmingly, guests do not like stand-and-greet. Very few indicated they did.
  • Church members who are strong extroverts. This group tended to be the vocal supporters of stand-and-greet. They really like speaking to both strangers and acquaintances.
  • The rest of the church members. The majority of the church members did not like the practice. It is the time of the worship service they dread.
So almost all of the guests do not like the stand-and-greet time, and the majority of the church members agree with them. As a consequence, many churches have dispensed with this practice.
But church leaders are finding other ways to keep their congregations friendly during the worship services. In this follow-up post, I share some of the new practices I have discovered.
  1. Conclude the services on time. The most natural time of fellowship takes place at the conclusion of each service. But, if the service goes long, many attendees are in a hurry to get their children from the preschool area, or to make previously scheduled appointments.
  2. Use the most outgoing members in critical places. One church has a highly extroverted senior adult lady as the receptionist to the preschool areas. Her sole, but critical role, is to greet parents and children, and to provide them a clear guide of where to go and what to do.
  3. Ask your most extroverted members to sit by guests and converse with them. Most of those who defended the stand-and-greet time where these extroverted members. Use them in other ways. And if the persons they find happen not to be guests, it’s not the end of the world. It’s okay for members to talk to one another.
  4. Ask your most extroverted members to mingle intentionally before and after the service. There is certainly a pattern developing here. The extroverted members want to act extroverted. Give them permission to do so. A few churches are even offering training for these extroverts.
  5. Have clear signage that lets guest know where to go. One church had the following signage at key entry points: “Guests: Follow the signs to our coffee gathering or to take your children to our safe and secure area.”
  6. Encourage people to speak to each other at the end of the service. If the service ends on time, encourage people to chat on the way out. Those who desire this interaction will do so. The rest will have permission not to do so.
  7. Have people wear shirts or badges that clearly indicate they are available to help others. I recently attended an event where people who could provide help wore brightly-colored shirts and well-marked badges. A church of which I’m aware does the same. The badge says in clear and bold letters: “I Would Love to Help You.”
Ultimately, friendliness is more of an attitude and atmosphere than a planned action. Leaders should provide such examples and continuously remind members to be hospitable and friendly at all times.
The meet-and-greet time is going away in many churches. These are some of the practices that are taking its place. Let me hear from you on this issue.
