Workshop Descriptions

Church Size Theory
Churches of the same size have many similar challenges and opportunities. Church Size Theory helps congregations identify these challenges and opportunities, and work together to take their next faithful steps. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach; rather, you will identify important areas for discipleship, mission and growth, while also consulting resources and best practices that are the right fit for your congregation.

Breakthrough is a resource for pastors and others who contribute in worship ministries. It includes a guide for your church with easy to use best practices in worship the five markers of vitality, as well as a set of five worship series. With Breakthrough, GNJ congregations can re-tune their worship, spend less time preparing the details and focus on what really matters – preaching the gospel to make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world.
