Church Growth: God Makes it Grow

Just read this great post on ChurchMarketingSucks.com, Church Growth: God Makes it Grow.

Here’s a quote:

And I agree. Synthetic church growth sucks. 

However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t optimize every possible angle to make sure your church does grow. God ultimately makes a plant grow, but a gardener would be foolish to deprive his plant of water, sun and soil for fear that he’s manufacturing growth. The growth will happen if the conditions are right, so why not make what conditions we can right?
