Episode 127: Can it be Revitalized?

 

The buzzword in church life is revitalization.  Everyone is talking about it because it's a huge need. 
 
So We need to talk about revitalization
 
  1. Churches need to be honest about their situation and their numbers.  When was the last time your church had a baptism?  When was the last time your church welcomed a new member?  When was the last time your church welcomed a new baby to the church family?
  2. Churches need to make a decision- what are they actually willing to do and change? 
  3. Then the church has to commit to follow through
  4. Churches need some outside help to show them reality and possibilities.
 
Churches in decline need to face some hard realities
 
Revitalize - the long term plan to renew their health through a change of vision and strategic change.  Need a plan
 
Replant - A church can relaunch with a new name and plan - but they must have a partnering church to
a.  foster
b. adopt
c. financially support
 
Repurpose - Creatively steward facilities for the continued glory of the larger kingdom of God
 
So start now and look at your church - do you need revitalized in some way?
