A Church Growth expert, Dr. Bola Akin-John has urged Ministers of God on the need to build a praying church.

He however said, building a praying church starts from the life of the Ministers in charge of assemblies. 

Dr. Akin-John said this while delivering a lecture on the topic "Contemporary Challenges and Prospects of Mega Churches" on Wednesday April 28, 2022 at the ongoing CAC Pastors' Leadership Retreat, Batch Seven.

He also said every local church must have prayer warriors and the church and minister must also have intercessors.

According to him, any church that wants to grow must rediscover the Bible; adding that anything God wants to do is not out of the Scripture. 

Dr. Akin-John who stated that the church is healthy according to the vision of the leader or minister in charge, emphasized that if you have lost your vision (vision of the Kingdom), the church can't be healthy. 

"Your church is as big as your leadership ability. If you have not developed your leadership ability you can never grow to a mega church. Even if you are transferred to a mega church, the church will decrease. If the church of God must grow under your hand, you must have the vision. Your church is as big as your personal development/growth. Your church is as big as your renewal strategies. You can't see growth when the church is dying inside. You have to know the causes and address it. You have to bring renewal, love for one and another, revival back to the church."

"Your church is as healthy as your faithfulness to God's word. Your church is as big as the strategies you employ. Your church is as big as the working of the Holy Spirit in that church. Your church is as big as the peoples' commitment. The number one key to the growth of the church is the Pastor. The people must want the church to grow and must be able to pay the price. Your church is as big as your structure. Your structure is your building and management/administration. Your church is as big as your diversification target. Make your church a lingua franca church. Your church is as big as your prayer intercession emphasis," he stated.
