Mar 11: 24 to Double

Next training session is on March 11th during the Education Hour and repeating at Noon. Sessions are scheduled for the 2nd Sundays of the month. 9:15 AM – 10:30 AM. Sessions are repeated each week during the educational hour for those who want to revisit the topics covered or could not attend the monthly events. Leaders across the country are calling 24toDouble a church operating system – a program that teaches us to strategically double our attendance in less than two years without using up financial resources we don’t have. In the monthly sessions 24toDouble is a step-by-step guide through its process that has been working for churches of every denomination across America. Most church growth resources are specifically for the pastor. 24toDouble is for the entire church community. I call it a “Whole Church Discipleship” model. Too many pastors tend to do it all because they’re the ones getting paid. 24toDouble is the anti-pastor “doing it all.” And, they are going to show us another way that is more successful. Doing more isn’t scalable. Doing less by getting people to help in areas where they are gifted and passionate is scalable and it inspires people to get on board and become part of the community. Most churches are stuck for a reason. By inspiring church members we teach them to not only join the teams that will get your church unstuck, but to lead them. This is an end-to-end solution for church growth.
