Church Website Mistakes (that lose potential visitors)

I spent an hour looking over different church websites this week as I was doing some research for our Save New England Church Planting Ministry.

I was a little shocked and discouraged as I browsed the sites looking for information. I saw some excellent websites, some bad websites, and some downright terrible websites. I was reminded of the importance of our electronic testimony.

Keep in mind that these were good churches from around the country. They preach the truth and take the right stand. It would be a shame for prospective visitors to miss out on God’s blessings because they never come to church based on what they see online.

I realize that the power and grace of God can overcome our shortcomings. I’m so thankful for that! Yet, why would we leave such an imminently fixable issue to chance?

People need Jesus! The stakes couldn’t be higher!

Don’t underestimate the importance of your church website.

People look online before they act. Consider these statistics:

Bible Verses For Atheists & Agnostics

Do you know an adamant unbeliever that needs Jesus? These powerful Bible verses for atheists and agnostics may help them see the light.

Bible Verses For Atheists & Agnostics

Atheism and agnosticism are on the rise. This is not due to new evidence against God or man’s evolution.

The real reason may surprise you!

While there are significant differences between atheists and agnostics, the end result is the same. The rejection of Christ and eternity in Hell. Click To Tweet (more…)

Pastor Search – Pastors Don’t Grow On Trees

Pastors are crucial to God’s work.  As we endeavor to plant churches, we must have more men of God.  But where do we find them?

Have you ever considered where pastors come from?  It may seem like a weird question at first glance, yet it is vital that we know the answer.  

Pastors are crucial to God’s work.  They are the under-shepherds of local assemblies leading in the stead of Christ.  Pastors are called to lead, feed, guide, and protect the flock of God.  

Faithful pastors are worth more than their weight in gold.  (And for some, that's a lot of gold!) Click To Tweet

A Church’s success in obeying the Lord is significantly affected by her pastor.  Churches tend to take on the personality, passion, and position of their pastors.  This is a blessing with a Godly, faithful, and committed man of God.  Also, it can be a curse with an ungodly, unmotivated, or unfaithful pastor.  

A church that lacks vision, clarity, doctrine, energy, etc. usually has someone at the helm who isn’t providing them.  A church that has drive, sound doctrine, passion, urgency, soul winning ministries, baptisms, etc. has a faithful pastor leading the way.  

A critic may complain that we are placing too much emphasis on the pastor. “What about Christ?” they ask.  Of course, the Lord is the head of the church.  He is the founder, builder, and protector of His Bride.  But don’t forget that it was our Lord’s idea to commission pastors to lead the flock.

Compelling Reasons Every Preacher Should Exercise

Preaching God’s Word is a priceless privilege. Also, it is one of the most stressful jobs on the planet. Spiritual battle, mental strain, emotional stress, and physical neglect create a devastating recipe for bad health.

Compelling Reasons Every Preacher Should Exercise

1 Samuel 4:15–18
“Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see.

And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army, and I fled to day out of the army. And he said, What is there done, my son?

And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken.

And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.”

Many preachers struggle with their physical health.

There are two stereotypical extremes of preachers. The first is the “plastic preacher.” He looks like a Ken doll with every hair in place, six-pack abs, and way too much emphasis on his appearance.

The second is the “plump preacher.” He is overweight, unfit, and gives way too little thought to his appearance.

Both extremes should be avoided like the plague.
