CFTRO 0003: Transitioning Your Traditional Church Part 1 – Start Where You Are

In this first of three parts, we talk about how you can transition your traditional church to reach an increasingly de-churched and never churched culture. The number one priority for pastors and church leaders is to define reality and cast vision. We look at the trends we see in the landscape of churches, and how we can move forward. Millennials are looking for authenticity and for someone to tell them the truth. If churches can do that, they will actually connect with a whole new generation.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Hear more about Jimmy and his family, and their call to South Florida.
  • Learn more about the trends we see in the landscape of today’s churches.
  • Find out how the authority of pastors regularly gets challenged, which truly paralyzes from making decisions.
  • Understand why it is critical for churches to provide millennials with authenticity and truth.
  • Learn how the number one job as the leader of your church is to define reality for your organization.
  • Encouraging words for pastors out there who are struggling, not to give up.
