How did this make an impact?

  1. This is encouraging. I was taught by a few nationally-respected pastors that a local pastor has up to 5 years to create growth in a church. They cited national research that stated if growth does not happen within the first 5 years, that particular pastor will not be able to lead that particular church to growth. I am half way through year 5 and I still have not figured out how to equip our church leaders to have a greater impact on our community. I have lived with the concern of a 5 year deadline for 3 years. I know there are many factors that play into a church increasing it’s impact for Christ, but reading this article was helpful because I love the church and community and have no desire to move.
