FIEC: Growing as a Leader - Migration
In early 2018, Ray Evans (FIEC Church Leadership Consultant and Pastor of Grace Community Church, Bedford) gathered a small group together to talk about crucial topics affecting church leaders. The group are (from left to right), Eric Harmer (Pastor, Barton Evangelical Church), Gareth Russell (Pastor, Westgate Chapel, Bury St Edmunds), Al Gooderham (Pastor, Grace Church Doncaster), Ray Evans, Mark Howson (Pastor, Mickfield Evangelical Church, Suffolk). We decided to be a fly on the wall as these five pastors discussed church attendance; the effect of internal migration on church life; and the changing face of our communities.We recommend watching this with your leadership team and then considering the questions below that Ray has suggested.
In this second film on ‘Migration’, the discussion covers the changing nature of migration, particularly around student centres. But what does migration look like in more rural areas and on hard-to-reach housing estates? What are some of the challenges facing churches and how should leaders seek to address them?

'Growing as a Leader' is an informal discussion about church growth and leadership between three experienced pastors.
