8 principles for churches that want to grow

A recent article by Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church and the resurgence discusses 8 principles of churches that want to grow.....
  1. Begin with the end in mind and know how large you are aiming to be.
  2. The larger the church, the more different that church is from other churches of the same theology and tradition
  3. Change is inevitable
  4. Don't assign moral judgements to size and change
  5. If you want to grow you need to prepare for common changes now.
  6. Be humble as a leader to seek the counsel of pastors ahead of you and receive their counsel.
  7. Discern between guilt and conviction in seasons of transition
  8. Pray and plan for people to meet Jesus.
