Congregational Stories About Growing Congregations

In healthy, vital congregations, growth occurs in many ways and is not only about numbers. In these stories of congregational life you'll read about the ways that congregations met emerging needs in the church, changed systems to adapt to growth, and reached out to the public to share their special light and invite newcomers in!
