Ever wonder why some churches grow like wildfire while yours is stuck? The secret is simpler than you think.

Community isn’t just a feel-good term; it’s the backbone of any thriving church. I’ve consulted with churches across North America, and the ones that grow have a strong sense of community. It starts with the first interaction a visitor has with your congregation. From the parking lot to the pew, every touchpoint is an opportunity to make someone feel seen, heard, and valued. So, the next time a new face walks through your church doors, remember: you have the power to turn that one-time visitor into a lifelong community member.
