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.
