About Us

Growing Effective Churches' mission is to direct efforts to create Churches that are effective in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. 

This is currently carried out in three focus areas:
1) Lead in establishing new churches/faith communities aligned toward this mission,
2)  Lead initiatives to transform existing congregations to greater effectiveness in this mission, and 3) Develop systems to raise up leadership, lay and clergy, to lead new and transform churches.  

Currently in the area of new congregations we are in the process of building pools of possible churches and pools of leaders for new churches.  In the area of transforming existing churches there are initiatives to address the mid sized churches: Matthew 28; larger churches: Large Church Initiative, and we hope to be offering a pilot program of Small Church Initiative.  In area of leadership development the church transformation initiatives are designed to develop  both lay and clergy leadership.  Other leadership development efforts are being designed.
