Growing Healthy Churches

Healthy Churches, Led by Healthy Leaders, Changing the World

Dr. Tim Brown
Executive Minister
March 2017

I love the church.  I have experienced numerous life-changing worship services and events. I have watched as followers take missional living seriously and they make lives and communities better by their presence.  I have witnessed the positive impact that a unified church can have on communities locally and globally.  As Bill Hybels has said on many occasions,


Nothing on earth has greater potential to change lives and carry out His kingdom work in your community, than your local church. There’s nothing like the local church when it’s working right. Its beauty is indescribable. Its power is breathtaking. Its potential is unlimited. No other organization on earth is like the church. Nothing even comes close.

Listen to nearly any pastor for any length of time and you will hear and feel the pain of leaving. Listen to lay leaders and long-time members and you will feel their angst over people “who have left the church.” Often the words, “Why are people leaving our church,” are expressed in tones of fear and grief. Mostly grief. Upon reflection, we’re not surprised by the grief, for so often those leaving are long-time friends, people whose lives have been intertwined with ours, often for years.

Pastor’s often grieve because they have poured themselves into the lives of those now leaving. They’ve been there for them in times of crisis, counseled them, celebrated with them, been friends with them – sometimes even led them to faith in Jesus. And now they are leaving. To the pastor, it feels personal. It feels like personal failure. The pastor blames himself or herself. The people of the church usually blame the pastor, adding to the pain of leaving.  Read more!
