    Slide 1:Breaking Growth Barriers

    Growing Healthy Churches, Church Planter Training John Jackson, Karl Roth 2007

    Slide 2:Success?

    Pastoral success is about rightly understanding, pursuing, and achieving what Gods vision for your ministry is all about

    Slide 3: Focus (Shaping Your Vision) Alignment (Strategic Planning & Ministries) Reach (Building Your Team)

    Slide 4:High Impact Ministry

    High Impact Churches break through spiritual, social, and leadership barriers to establish new churches, new ministries, and reach large numbers of new people for Christ. High Impact churches confront the law of inertia and the reality of human lethargy with a passionate purposeful pursuit of Gods plan for evangelism in their area.

    Slide 6: Our GRIP of the heart of God (which helps to FOCUS our motivation) Our GRASP on the needs of people around us (which helps to FOCUS our ministry) Our GIFTS that He has entrusted to us (which helps to FOCUS our methods)

    Slide 7: Simple Church A simple church is designed around a straightforward and strategic process that moves people through the stages of spiritual growth. The leadership and the church are clear about the process (clarity) and are committed to executing it. The process flows logically (movement) and is implemented in each area of the church (alignment). The church abandons everything that is not in the process (focus). - pages 67-68

    Slide 8:Step 1: Design a Simple Process (Clarity) Step 2: Place Your Key Programs Along the Process (Movement) Step 3: Unite All Ministries Around the Process (Alignment) Step 4: Begin to Eliminate Things Outside the Process (Focus)

    Slide 9: 3 Questions Every Church Leadership Team should be asking each year (from Ray Johnston): 1) What will we do to reach our community this year? 2) What will we do to grow our people this year? 3) What will we do to develop leaders this year?

    Slide 20: Leadership Roles

    Slide 21:Cast Vision

    Leaders develop a sense of a preferable future. Vision casting requires a passionate pursuit of the possible even in the midst of the mind-numbing reality of the present. Leaders learn to speak in short sentences that SING rather than in paragraphs that SNORE. Leaders must paint pictures, call forth emotions, and challenge people to risk

    Slide 22:Create Environments

    Create environments to reach unchurched, grow disciples, develop leaders. We live in an EXPERIENCE economy.. Starbucks is not, in the end, selling coffee! Neither is Barnes & Noble selling books! And you know that Chucky Cheese is not selling pizza!

    Slide 24:Develop Systems

    Manufacturing Model: INPUT---THROUGHPUT--OUTPUT Begin with the end in mind.

    Slide 25:Equip Leaders
