Dr. Elmer Towns has a challenge for you – to become an influential pastor.

As a church leader, you need to understand the past in order to shape the future. And as an expert in historical church growth, Dr. Towns has NEW insights and applications for you from an impressive study of the ten most influential churches in recent history.

You may not know many of these churches and church leaders – but you will soon discover their great impact on your ministry today.

Based on his 200th book of the same name, Dr. Towns recorded this workshop live at a Nelson Searcy coaching event. As Nelson’s friend and mentor, Dr. Towns has shared exclusive content with this resource that is NOT in the book and is focused on practical applications for you and your own church growth.

This resource explores the ten churches that have had the greatest influence on Christianity worldwide in the past 100 years. Their influence spans across culture and across time.

History has shown that great leaders have the ability to reach beyond the walls of their churches to influence cultures for Christ. You’ll learn from leaders who prevailed against insurmountable odds, with limited resources, in difficult circumstances, all to glorify God. These were average people whom God used in above-average ways.

So with the most unlikely people at the helm, some of the most influential churches emerged in the most unlikely places. These are not just large churches. Not necessarily famous churches. Many are in countries where there is the strongest opposition to the Gospel.

You’ll hear the stories and case studies from Dr. Towns who has been an eyewitness to history. From the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement, to the explosive growth of house churches in Communist China to the expansion of the Southern Baptist Convention and the worldwide rise of praise and worship music led by Hillsong Church – you’ll discover their innovative strategies and how you too can experience exponential growth in your church!

Understanding the history of these 10 churches, you can compare your own experiences to these trends. You’ll have new insight into what to change – and what NOT to change.

Dr. Towns wants you to know that the great things God has done in the past can be done today! With the deeper sense of church history and its applications found in his new resource, YOU too can become influential and fulfill your calling in new and exciting ways.

In this in-depth examination of these 10 churches and what made them influential, you will discover:

  • How a small church on Azusa Street in Los Angeles captured the explosive movement of the Holy Spirit and spread its influence around the world.
  • How to break through and redefine your “box” of influence.
  • 10 methods of influential churches – and how to focus on your primary method
  • What Jesus thought about culture – a surprising analysis
  • The six styles of churches and the dominant spiritual gift for each (which one is yours?)
  • The power of the “un-seen” churches in a part of the world where Christianity is persecuted.
  • The story of a “non-violent” revolution of a church in Atlanta, Georgia that became the platform of Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Five principles of “cell” growth and how the largest church in the world built its ministry this way.
  • The five pockets of stewardship – and how to raise money (lessons from one of the most influential church leaders in history)
  • A Case Study in growth through age-graded Sunday School classes.
  • Characteristics of a “seeker” church and how it provides the unchurched with a safe, non-threatening environment
  • Five problems with the “traditional” church (and how to fix them)
  • Six ways to make worship a true Christian experience (as shared from the leading church in praise-worship music).
  • How one of the largest churches in American was built through marketing, advertising and media (and what methods you can borrow)
  • 7 traits of great leaders from the most influential churches (and one is NOT being perfect)
  • Life cycles of the church - what you can AND can’t control
  • The ONE principle you should remember to shape your influence as a church (it’s not what you think)
  • And much more!

So are you ready to respond to Dr. Towns’ challenge – and reach your true growth potential for the Kingdom? No matter what challenges you may be facing in your ministry, you’ll be motivated by these historical leaders to be the most influential person for God that you can be!
