The Because Approach
Biblical strategy for missional churches.

1. Mandate.

What makes church different from the people gathering at the golf club on Sunday morning or the football club on Saturday afternoon or the nightclub on Friday evening?

Step 1 looks at the biblical mandate for being a Church and lays foundations for the rest of the Because Approach. It analyses the strategic priorities of churches, helps you formulate a mission statement and clarifies which overall growth strategy (revitalisation or planting) suits your situation.
