Learning from Churches that Work

July 14, 2005 by

Terry Storch (who brought us Church Marketing Sucks, What Works For You?) along with Tony Morgan have put together a list of Top 10 Innovative Churches. Every church’s web site is listed so you can check them out and see what makes them innovative (at least what you can gather from the web).

And while we’re learning from other churches, Northminster Presbyterian Church in Las Cruces, N.M. analyzes the web sites of the 100 Fastest Growing and Largest Churches in the U.S., as listed by Outreach Magazine. Not everything these megachurches do will apply to smaller churches, but there’s still plenty to learn.

  • These Guys Don’t Suck

    I’m feeling quite honored today because one of my favorite blogs has plugged my site two days in a row. The boys over at ChurchMarketingSucks.com have revisited a couple of previous posts. Here’s their take on: 10 Easy Ways to

    Hey Terry (and Tony) :)
    Thanks for posting your list – it was nice to visit some websites of churches I haven’t really heard of before.
    I was wondering if you would comment on the difference/fine line of churches and leaders being “inspired” by innovative or influential churches vs. “copy catting” and not being authentic to their own calling and leadership and guiding of the spirit.
    I know there is room for learning from others’ mistakes and success – but I have seen and personally experienced the temptation to do it “Just like such and such church” did. And I feel as leaders in this generation when we do that, we are slowling silencing the unique song God is singing to each of us in our own place and our own time.
    So yeah…I’ll be quiet now – this is your blog, not mine :)
    Thanks!
