A Tried and True Formula
Ira North knew about church growth. Although North died in 1984, his name is still synonymous with that of the Madison Church of Christ.

North emphasized doctrinal commitment rather than mere pragmatics. His summary chapter opens with this statement: “God does not require that we be big, or wealthy, or powerful, or super smart. What our Heavenly Father requires is faithfulness.”
