USA Today Reports Church Decline - You Can Be the Exception
USA Today reported that almost all churches have continued to lose ground in the last 20 years. But not all churches are declining or just barely growing. Some are thriving. And the God-given principles that drive their effectiveness are known, common to each, and repeatable.
Your church can be one of these exceptions. See our Products and Services sections to learn about and apply these principles.
Why Choose CGD...?
There are many organizations that want to help churches grow. Churches overwhelming choose CGD because we are the only resource that "puts it all together" as we affect all aspects of your church---helping you transition from programs and marketing to relational ministry. Other organizations only affect one or a few aspects. Also, our easy to understand and easy to use Products and Services are backed by extensive research
that identifies what God has designed to really work ---
nothing more, nothing less.
(Well, when you have the big G behind you, how can you lose...?!)
(and I'm having a hard time visualizing what 'something more' could be...)
