How to Break a (Big) Church Growth Barrier


One of the most obvious signs of stuckness in churches is declining or plateauing attendance. All churches hit growth barriers—even the large ones. The question is not if growth stalls, but how to respond when it does. The good news? You aren’t alone.

On Thursday March 1 at 1 p.m. EST, we will be hosting a webinar called “Breaking Barriers: Reach 2,000 & Beyond.” Tony Morgan, Amy Anderson (Director of Consulting at The Unstuck Group), Chad Moore (lead pastor of Sun Valley Community Church) and Matthew Cork (lead pastor of Friends Church) are digging into four reasons large churches hit growth barriers, and how pastors can lead their churches forward.

In this webinar, we’ll dive into topics like:

  •      How to Recognize a Toxic Culture & Turn It Around
  •      Overcoming a Leadership Void in Your Staff and Volunteer Teams
  •      Multisite Model Missteps & How They Set You Back
  •      Complexity Creep & Why It’s Undermining Your Vision

We invite you to join us to discuss the unique challenges of leading a large church—and how to get unstuck in the process.

Has your Church Hit a Growth Barrier?

Growth barriers often leave leaders feeling like they’ve exhausted their options and resources for growth and that they are stuck. But, here’s the good news about growth barriers: they can be broken down by changing your ministry routine.  Shifting the way you approach leadership, structure, and methods can provide a huge boost to your church’s growth.

For many years now, we’ve been hosting coaching networks. The Unstuck Team continues to put on these networks for many reasons, but the primary would be this: we want churches to get unstuck. We’ve seen these networks challenge and encourage leaders to break growth barriers by learning insights and strategies to take their church to the next level.  

In these networks, you’ll learn best practices from healthy, growing churches and begin applying them in your church environment from day one. The Unstuck Team will walk alongside you as you take your next steps in leadership by fighting for healthy growth and learning how to establish a healthy church structure.

Each church is unique in its strategies, methods and practices. This is why we believe in the power of coming together to discover ways to explore outside of our ministry routine to experience growth.

This fall, we’re hosting 3 leadership coaching networks. Each will consist of a 7-month, collaborative coaching experience that includes 3 gatherings in Atlanta, 2 exclusive webinars, and 2 one-on-one coaching calls. Here are the options:

The Unstuck Church: Reaching 1,000 Coaching Network

This network is designed to help you move from reaching hundreds to reaching 1,000 in attendance by clarifying what’s working and what’s wrong, defining an action plan for next steps, and establishing a staffing and ministry structure that supports growth and health.

The Unstuck Church: Growing Beyond 2,000 Coaching Network

This network will help you develop strategies to tackle the unique challenges of larger churches including leadership development, staffing, communications, discipleship and establishing healthy growth engines.

Multisite Leadership Coaching Network

This experience will set you up to more effectively lead a growing, multisite church. We will help you navigate Common Pitfalls in Multisite, Refining Your Model, Clarifying How You Structure and Operate, Best Practices for Launching a Campus, Managing the Tension (Central vs Campus), and more!

We have space for only 7 churches in each network — some of which are already gone, so make sure to follow this link secure your spot soon!

New Leadership Coaching Networks!

The only way to get different results is to engage different systems. But we know it’s difficult to diagnose the misfiring systems in your church while carrying the day-to-day weight of ministry. Are you willing to get outside your routine to discover the ministry shifts that will help you lead your church at a higher level?

This spring, The Unstuck Group invites you to take your next steps with a community of like-minded church leaders. In our new Leadership Coaching Networks, you’ll learn best practices from healthy, growing churches and begin applying them in your church environment from day one.

Hope is not a strategy. Discover the shifts that need to happen in your ministry systems to lead your church at a higher level.

Iron sharpens iron. By joining a coaching network, you’ll take your next steps with a community of like-minded church leaders on a similar journey.

Leaders have a bias for action. You’ll learn best practices from healthy, growing churches and begin applying them in your church environment from day one.

Tony Morgan, myself and other ministry consultants from The Unstuck Group will host 3 new coaching networks starting in May 2017, each designed to help you engage the systems you will need as you lead in a new season of ministry:

Multisite Leadership

Reaching 1,000

Growing Beyond 2,000 

We have space for just 8 churches in each network. Follow this link to check out all of the details and decide if this is the right next step for you!
