Over the next few days, I will be blogging on the essentials to breaking the following worship barriers – 200, 500, 1000, and 1500 people in worship. Today I will begin by listing the essentials for breaking 200.
Breaking the 200 in Worship Barrier.
- A full-time worship leader who functions also as a pastor to those in the music ministry.
- A parking space for every two people on the property at the peak hour during the peak part of the year.
- Nothing is cut back in the summer.
- The pastor personally contacts every new guest within 24 hours.
- The pastor spends 70-80% of their time bringing new people to Christ and/or the church.
- The focus is more on fulfilling the Great Commission than growing the church.
- The board is small enough to make major decisions in rapid fashion.
- Complainers are shown the door rather than being tolerated.
- The pastor can visualize what needs to be done and not done if the church were twice its size.
Breaking worship barriers is not as easy as it sounds. That is why I’m spending more time coaching pastors through the various barriers. If you would like to see what and how I coach, visit the Next Level Coaching Network site at www.nextlevelcoachingnetwork.net.
