We had a great experience going to the game; the outcome was just disappointing. It was like the Gators were trying to phone this one in. They didn’t look like themselves.

When you love a strategy more then you love the mission you’ve got the right recipe for a declining church.

Ever say something you wish you could take back? Sure. Everyone has. Whether it’s something we regret saying to a spouse, to a child, to a friend, or in the workplace to a coworker. Everybody has said something they wish they could go back and say differently…or…not say at all. Many of us are not aware of how powerful our words are and how they affect the people around us. The best church leaders I’ve ever been around understand this and they exercise discipline with their words.

Churches don’t change. In fact most churches avoid changing at all cost, even if it means not growing. It’s so bad that I’ve seen churches choose to close their doors over choosing to change. Here are six common reasons I’ve observed why churches choose not to change. One of these might be why your church won’t change.
