What happened to Solana Beach Presbyterian Church? Oh, it's still a big church, but it's half the size it was twenty years ago. Some would say that Mike McClenahan, the Senior Pastor, failed in some way. He must have done something wrong and that's why this church has declined so much.
Maybe. Or maybe it's just a reflection of what's going on everywhere in our culture.
Mike and his team have been wrestling with these challenges for almost two decades. And what they have found is that maybe they've been measuring the wrong thing. Maybe, rather than measuring weekly church attendance, what they needed to measure was what was going on in people's hearts.
In this episode, Mike McClenahan shares the story of his journey from trying to lead a successful church to recognizing that it’s more important to grow people’s hearts than it is to grow people’s church attendance.
