Pride can sometimes cause us to think that we won't make the same mistakes that others have made or that we can be the exception to the rule. We did this series because we hope that the church leaders who are listening will be willing to learn from the mistakes of others and not go down these paths. 

In the final episode of our series, Tony and Amy discuss more miscellaneous stupid church tricks, like mistakes related to multisite, church websites, church buildings, and more.

Most churches start out on fire for their mission: to reach new people for Jesus. But as “new people” turn into “church people,” the voices on the inside of the church often become louder.

In this episode, Tony and Amy discuss the ways churches get off mission and become insider-focused and offer advice and inspiration on how to reverse this trajectory.

Often, well-intentioned churches add more programs believing it will lead to more growth. In reality, competing priorities ultimately lead to more complexity and a lack of alignment. 

In this episode, Tony and Amy continue our series on Stupid Church Tricks—explaining what we can learn from them and how to avoid them.
