PRE-CONFERENCE EQUIPPING LAB: Data, Analytics and the Church: Helping Churches Do the FIVE Things They Must Do to Thrive! — Hosted by Gloo
To grow and thrive every church has to master FIVE things. They need to: Attract people — make people in the community aware that you exisit; Get people in the door to an event or service for the first time; Keep people — close the back door; Grow disciples; and Multiply leaders. We've discovered that of these FIVE things, it is not what you do best but what you do least that determines the future of your church. More info and list of speakers in this lab can be found HERE.
