If you enjoy listening to this podcast and it has helped you and your team in any way, please leave us a review on Apple Podcast or Stitcher or take the time to share it on social media. Do you have a question for Pastor Josh about leadership, ministry, or any other topic we’ve covered on the podcast so far? Submit your questions to info@joshuagagnon.com or @joshgagnon on Twitter and Pastor Josh might answer it on a future episode! Senior leaders and lead pastors are invited to join us this October for our Fall Coaching Network! Visit www.leadbetter.church to learn more and to sign up! Pastor Josh on Instagram: www.instagram.com/pastorjoshgagnon Pastor Josh on Twitter: www.twitter.com/joshgagnon Send your leadership questions to info@joshuagagnon.com Today’s episode is a continued conversation from last week’s episode. You can listen to it here. Mentioned in This Episode: ARDA: To research church-specific data NLC’s Assimilation Process Takeaways for Leaders: The second question to ask yourself when it comes to your church’s growth: Are guests sticking? If the primary issue is that the guests don’t stick, then we have to step back and look at the hospitality atmosphere people are walking into. Sticking is the terminology we would use if a guest considers our church to be the church they attend. Just because your church’s experience is good isn’t enough to make someone want to stick around. The follow-up process is the important factor to make someone feel noticed and wanted. Content is good, but there needs to be a community piece to it. It takes constant evaluation. Evaluate everything so that it represents a welcoming community. Choose an engaging method that will speak to your church’s demographic.

So many of our growth obstacles come from knowing if guests are showing up. About 10% attrition is normal for a church, so statistically, you need 120 new guests showing up to maintain attendance at 400 a week. The quality of your worship experience matters when it comes to getting guests to stick around. Create an environment where guests want to invite others to your church. Have your leadership and staff lead the way in creating an invite culture. Focus on strengthening your family ministries that add value to the lives of the kids. Be authentic and speak a language that the culture understands.

You just have to care for what the Lord has given you and move toward making it current.

Listen in as he gives some solid advice to anyone involved in the hiring process. Shane's email: shane.becton@nextlevel.church Takeaways for Leaders: Advice for making hires: If you need help, define the role to help answer the question of whether you need to make a hire or to find a volunteer. Document processes and standardize the role you are looking for. Be clear with expectations. Do what you say you’re going to do. Take it slow. Families are involved, it can get messy. It takes a toll on the team to go through the hiring process. Advice for those looking to be hired: Be sold out on the vision because the role could change. Don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions. Look for patterns to see if they do what they say. Take it slow. Advice for someone starting in a new role: Recognize that you are stepping into a season of transition. Ask questions when you don’t understand.

People can grow things. The team can grow the organization outside of you spearheading every movement of growth.Y Your team should be asking, “How can we grow without our leader’s voice? Where are we the problem?” You should be asking, “How can I promote growth without my voice? Where am I the problem?”

We don’t get to cross the finish line with them. We let them finish on their own after we get them started and direct their course. They have to finish with God and we have to wait at the finish line to help direct them and start their next race.” Some of us stay in the boat far too long and don’t allow our leaders to drive. We don’t stand at the shoreline and monitor the boat, we go into the house and trust that they can drive the boat themselves. As leaders, we’re trying to run someone else’s race.
