Episode 268: Maturing on Mission

Enlist. Equip. Empower. Repeat.

In Episode 268 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd discuss reaching your community versus putting all your church’s focus on inward growth. Here’s Michael with today’s question: 

What can we do as churches to make sure that we are focused on reaching our community rather than becoming only inward focused? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How a missional focus leads to maturity. 
  • How your church’s spending reveals what your values and priorities are.
