Seven Marks Of An Effective ChurchWhat makes a church effective? Is it having a functional building, excellent worship music, a vibrant youth program or a teaching ministry?

No church will ever master all of these elements, but they should be the marks to which church leaders are guiding their people. Is your church on the right course?
