    Quarterly Unstuck Church Report

You may assume based on my previous writing that I’m not a big fan of events. If so, you would be right. Generally speaking, I think events are killing the church.

That said, I do believe there’s a place for events if they’re done right. Here’s a chart to help you consider what distinguishes a healthy event from an unhealthy one.

Healthy Events

If you haven’t in the past, now would be a good time to list every event your church offers in a given calendar year. Then, as a team, assess whether or not it’s healthy.

Use this as an opportunity to either get the unhealthy events in the healthy column. Or, if that’s not possible, maybe it’s time you stopped offering the unhealthy events.

Whatever you do, don’t continue scheduling the event because you’ve always done it. That’s one of the reasons why events are killing the church.
