You Don’t Have to be a Megachurch to Reach 1000’s

Bob FranquizChurch

index There’s this belief that many pastors have that drives me nuts. They think they need to be megachurch pastors to reach 1000’s of people. I disagree. I think any church of any size can reach 1000’s of people far from God. What do you need to do? Here’s 3 things: #1 - Take evangelism seriously - don’t simply expect it to happen. Instead, be strategic. #2 - Mobilize your congregation - Let people know that Easter is the best Sunday of the year to invite someone to church. #3 - Make your biggest Sundays count - that means you ...

The 1 Thing I Never Knew about Leading a Growing Church

Bob FranquizChurch

index When I planted Calvary Fellowship in September of 2000, we started growing almost immediately. Then I noticed something. It was something I had never thought about. People started disappearing. Some people got transferred out of town. Some people bought new homes in a different city. Some people simply moved on. In a word, I learned about attrition.

If you're a church of 200, you need to reach 30 people every year just to remain a ... Read More

The #1 Myth Pastors Believe about Reaching People

Bob FranquizGeneral

index There are things that drive me crazy. One of them is when pastors believe myths that keep them from reaching their community. So with Easter just around the corner, I want to dispel the #1 myth that Pastors believe about reaching people. Here it is: “You need lots of money to promote your church in your community” Nope. Not true. In fact, we teach our Outreach Ninja members how to reach people for nickels compared to what most churches spend. Louis is young pastor who took over a flailing church of thirty-five people down the street from Calvary. This ... Read More

Bob FranquizChurch

index I’m a big fan of Spurgeon. In fact, my favorite book of all time is “Lectures to My Students”. Here’s one of my favorite Spurgeon quotes: “I would sooner bring one sinner to Jesus Christ than unravel all the mysteries of the divine Word, for salvation is the one thing we are to live for.” I shared this quote at a Pastors gathering in Miami not too long ago. During that event, I met a Pastor named Willie. Willie was ministering in a tough part of town and after five years of ministry, his church had an average attendance ... Read More
