Lynn Green - Growing Healthy Churches

This is a video of a speech given by Lynn Green at the Baptist Assembly in 2015 outlining the BU Council's vision for growth in the Union. The emphasis was on the importance of interdependence in the life of Baptist churches in Britain. This resulted in five main headings summarised below:

My own reflection on these is that the values that were outlined in relation to interdependence could equally be applied to individual churches too as they seek to see future growth.  So these five principles when applied to individual local churches could be as follows:

Feel like one team
Embrace adventure
Inspire others
Share a hunger for God’s kingdom
