Every church is unmistakeably unique. Instead of projecting the experiences of a few successful model churches on every church, natural church development helps you discover and develop the God-given, unique nature of your church. This workbook is based on the most comprehensive research project ever conducted on the causes of church growth. More than 1000 churches in 32 countries on all 5 continents took part in this study. A total of 4.2 million responses were analyzed. The result is an approach to church growth that won’t be found in any text-books on the subject. Instead of trying to ‘produce’ the church of Jesus Christ with human efforts, natural church development focuses on unlocking the potential that God has already put into every church.
