Agile Church Growth System

The first and only Church Growth System designed by pastors for pastors - membership software, website design and church growth training

Agile Church is a church growth system designed to do everything a church leader needs. This system can track giving history, track attendance, stay connected with members and visitors, and participate in on-line church growth training programs. Agile is designed by pastors to support and enhance the work of pastors, leaders, and lay ministers in every congregation regardless of the size or technical ability. These tools coupled with a stream of workshops, webinars, articles, and classes can mobilize your church to grow into a vibrant future. This isn’t a data base. It is a system to help your church grown again.

Becoming a Distributed Church: Why It's Worth the Shift - Fresh Expressions US

A very helpful resource as we rethink church! If your church was unable to gather in groups larger than 50, or even 10, what would your church look like? And how would it shape the way you think about your church in how it joins God’s mission?

Why Are You Still Going to a Church that Does Bad Worship?

Good question... I think it's a legitimate question. I should probably included a disclaimer here. If you're not already concerned with bad worship in the church, or if you're blissfully unaware that such a thing exists, you may not like this post. You should read it anyway, because you need to know. It may very wel...

Proud of UCC. Wonder how it compares with other Mainline Churches?

"The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority."

Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love, 1963.

In U.S., Decline of Christianity Continues at Rapid Pace

Zig Zigler loved to tell a story about two shoe salespersons who were sent to an underdeveloped country. One sent a cable back saying "No one in this country wears shoes. Sent me a ticket home." The other wrote back, "No one in this country wears shoes, send help, too much business." WHICH ARE YOU? The religious landscape of the United States continues to change at a rapid clip, with both Protestantism and Catholicism experiencing losses of population share.
