Strengthening a Network
of Healthy Churches
Healthy Churches see
If we are going to see gospel transformation in every community in New York then we need to have healthy churches in every community of New York.
So what makes a church healthy?
10 Characteristics of a Healthy Church
The New York Ministry Network gathered together a group of pastors, missionaries, church planters and revitalizers, scholars, and veteran ministry leadership practitioners to help answer this question. The result was a list of 10 characteristics that are evident in thriving churches, regardless of the cultural context.
Think of the community within which God has sovereignly placed your church. Think of the individuals and families. Think of the schools and workplaces. Think of where people shop, play, and eat. Think of every home. Think of every heart. And now imagine GOSPEL TRANSFORMATION in that community – the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
What will it look like?
One thing is for sure: It will include a healthy church.
