[Podcast] How Your Church Can Break Through Growth Barriers with Chris Hodges


Church planting and church growth are two topics that produce some of the most frequent questions our team is asked. In working with hundreds of churches, we've had the privilege of helping many church planters think through hiring and team building questions.

In today's episode of the Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast, William Vanderbloemen sits down with Pastor Chris Hodges, co-founder of the ARC church planting network, Senior Pastor of Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, AL, with an attendance of over 26,000, and a man with a heart for helping churches grow.

Pastor Chris talks with William about:

  • 4 key areas to growing your church
  • Building his ministry teams
  • Prison ministry
  • The importance of small groups and discipleship
