Transfer Church Growth

Mission Tent Crusade

Mission Tent CrusadeTransfer church growth occurred through at least two sets of circumstances with the obvious one the arrival of a new minister. He naturally brought such initial enthusiasm and charisma to the ministry that people from other churches were attracted there perhaps even out of curiosity. Perhaps these people were bored with their former churches, had a disagreement, or something else caused them to get itchy feet! During a new pastor's "honeymoon period" in a church, this kind of transfer church growth tended to happen, much to his at the time. "See," he said to his bishop, "I've been here only three months and the congregation has increased by fifty percent already!" The bishop pats him on the back and counsels, "Let's wait and see, shall we?" When the dynamic minister leaves then so do many of his people.✞

Self Check Up

Consider your own church, is it a friendly group to be with? If the pastor moved, would many of your people leave too?✞
