Institute for Local Church Growth

The United Methodist Church has made a tremendous impact in every local community in the United States and literally changed the world, bringing Christ into the lives of our fellow man. Yet we find ourselves in a state of decline as a denomination. How can we reverse this trend?

The purpose of the Institute for Local Church Growth (ILCG) is to reverse this decline through an in-depth analysis of local churches that will provide a road map for growth. Every local church is unique, and has strengths that will help them grow in the future. The ILCG will assist local churches in building on these strengths, and collectively we can move to a period of growth in the United Methodist Church.
