In this valuable church leadership resource, Kevin Martin examines the five aspects of congregational life that are key to the development and growth of a strong congregation. Based on the author's popular church growth seminar, The Five Critical Systems, the five keys to congregational growth are:
- Build the Team
- Keep Healthy
- Pay Attention to Generations
- Open the Front Door, Close the Back Door (keep your original members as you gain new members)
- Raise the Stewardship Level
Five Keys for Church Leaders distinguishes itself from other such resources with a focus on the "systems" of congregational life rather than the "programs" of congregational life.
