When toxic members are present in a church, resources are spent on overcoming the fallout of toxic members. As a result, members are less likely to invite others to church. Today, we explain six reasons why.
Highlights - Today - Episode
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
Personal invitations to church are a great beginning point to get your church moving toward an outward focus.
New - Members - Guests - Threats - Bullies
New members and guests are often seen as threats to church bullies and toxic members because they can potentially upset the balance of power in the church.
Being a welcoming church requires a heart change, not just a change in actions.
Pastors - Members - Fear - Job - Security
Pastors are often hesitant to deal with toxic members because there is a fear for job security.
The six ways we discuss are:
Members - Others - Culture
Members are not inclined to invite others to an unhealthy culture.
Most toxic members do not like new people in the church because it dilutes their power base.
Members - Welcoming - Process - Guests
Toxic members hinder the welcoming process for guests.
Pastors are hesitant to encourage people to invite.
Resources - Time - Energy - Toxicity
Resources of time and energy are spent on toxicity rather than inviting.
Toxic cultures reduce the volunteer base.
