You may or may not be a systems person. You may lead a large or very small church. Regardless of the context, systems need to be in place or success will always elude you.

When are we attracting people to the Kingdom?
If we never attract people to us, they will never experience the Jesus in us. So we need a system that allows those on the outside to see what we have on the inside. When do we do that intentionally?
a. Sunday morning? How?
b. Missional communities? How?
c. Personally? How?
d. Outreach? How?

a. Once someone gets to know us or the church, what is the next place? Where?
b. Do we know how many we have seeking? How do we record it? Where?
c. What is our definition of the person who is “committed”?
