A Key to Church Growth
As all church growth consultants tell us, a key element to successful, sustained church growth is the creation of small groups or cells. The Spiritual Growth Circle Program provides everything you need to create intimate small groups within your spiritual community. Circles are safe and sacred groups of three to eight people who meet weekly in a congregant’s home to discuss the spiritual principles and practices outlined in your previous Sunday’s message. They are small, intimate, supportive gatherings where individual spiritual growth happens, deep bonds form among the participants, and ties to the church community strengthen, all of which result in church growth!
A Time-Tested Program
Church Growth consultant Rev. Colleen Schuerlein spent 10 years with Mary Morrissey helping to grow Living Enrichment Center, and Spiritual Growth Circles played a large part in their meteoric expansion. She brought Circles to Rev. Michele Whittington and Creative Living Fellowship several years ago, and Circles have supported the deepening and expansion of that congregation ever since. Now, Revs. Colleen and Michele have created a step-by-step program so Circles can do the same for your community!
