110 pages1 hour


Baffled as to why your church visitors never come back? Solve the mystery and get them to return again and again starting this Sunday.

Rev. Tracy Barnowe is an ordained UCC pastor and a nationally-recognized expert in church growth. She has systematically created, taught, tested, and refined church growth methods with hundreds of churches in numerous denominations over 20 years, tracking the results to ensure they are reliable and replicable in any church setting by ordinary people.

In "Grow Your Church!" Rev. Barnowe reveals the rich fruits of decades of data: the most effective, tried-and-true tools that will help every congregation turn its “church shoppers” into actively-involved church members.

In this book you will learn:
• how to get 85% of your first-time visitors to return the following Sunday
• how to get first-time visitors actively involved in your church over just one cup of coffee
• four big questions that will get your visitors halfway toward membership their first week
• simple, easy-to-learn tools that cost nothing to use and that anyone can do

Whether you are a minister, greeter, usher, or simply a member in the pews that loves and worries about your church, you can start being the change your church needs today. Even if your church has been in decline for years, this book will help you reverse the downturn, infuse new life into your congregation, and turn the arguments over “how come no one ever comes back?” into “what are we going to do with all these kids?!”

Read this book today. Grow your church this Sunday. Don’t let your next first-time visitor become another empty spot in the pew.
