Ever wonder what it takes to foster growth in a modern church, especially in a post-pandemic world? Then you’ll want to join me for a real engaging conversation with Rich Birch, a church growth expert. Rich and I delve into the nitty gritty, discussing everything from the importance of communication within church ministries, to adapting the methods of the Attractional Church Movement in an evolving spiritual landscape. We examine the unique balance of roles within the church, and how to optimize the length of a message during services. The conversation gets extra interesting when we talk about fostering an ‘invite culture,’ a practice that has taken on a new level of importance since the onset of the pandemic. And of course, we couldn’t leave out the significant connection between a robust volunteer culture and church growth.

Rich also shares some of his favorite resources for spiritual growth. Get ready to challenge your perspectives and be inspired by this candid conversation. And be sure to share it with a friend or two!
