Here is a list of the top ten posts from this blog that were posted in 2016.

  1. WHY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT CRIPPLES THE CHURCH – This is part 1 of a 2 part series on church leadership.
  2. THE 1 MEASUREMENT OF SUCCESS EVERY PASTOR SHOULD USE – I do believe there’s a measurement leaders can use to determine whether or not their church is resilient and will survive into the future.
  3. THE CONSUMER WORSHIP IDOL – We know what worship is, but we intentionally choose not to pursue it because it’s too hard.
  4. WHY TRADITIONAL CHURCH PLANTING IS DEAD – I predict that within 10 years, traditional church planting will no longer be effective, and only the 5 richest denominations will be able to afford trying.
  5. 5 WAYS COMMUTER CHURCHES ARE KILLING CHRISTIANITY – Anecdotal evidence suggests lengthy commutes may be killing you physically. Can we say the same thing about commuter churches and their impact on dwindling church attendance?
  6. TWO CRUCIAL PIECES MISSING IN WORSHIP (MUSIC) – We could all stick with Hillsong and Bethel, but maybe there’s more to ‘worship’?
  7. THREE WAYS TO JUSTIFY SHORT TERM MISSIONS TRIPS –  In my mind, there are only three reasons someone should go on a short-term missions trip.
  8. THE PROBLEM OF SAMENESS IN INSULATED CHRISTIANITY – Does everyone in your church look the same? That might be a problem.
  9. SOUL COATS: RESTORATION – ADULT COLORING BOOK WITH BIBLE SCENES & SCRIPTURES – My adult colouring book launched.
  10. HOW WHITE EVANGELICALS ‘WON’ THE ELECTION & DESTROYED THE CHURCH – Top post by a landslide was on the US election.

Honorable mention to a post that I thought would do better but didn’t was:

Cheers to 2016 and onward to deeper and bigger dreams and visions for 2017!
