The remarkable thing aboutMoreIn 1994 Richard Dunagin became pastor of Lake Highlands United Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas.

Since that time church attendance has increased by 60 percent, and membership continues to grow at a steady and robust rate. The remarkable thing about that fact is that Lake Highlands is in a fully built-out neighborhood.

Like most congregations, it is not located in a suburban area with hordes of young families moving in and eager to sign up. How then did Lake Highlands defeat the cycle of stagnant membership? By reaching beyond the walls with bold and innovative programs and ministries that reinvigorated the spiritual life of the congregation and drew in others from around the community.

Dunagins message is simple: Numerical and spiritual stagnation is not inevitable. Gods Spirit can and does blow through churches in long-established, stable communities. The task of church leaders is to discern the Spirits leadership and follow it, even into places they might never have thought of going before.
