Nine of ten churches are either declining or growing so slowly they are not keeping up with the growth of the community. Many churches are just a few years away from dying and closing. Revitalization is an urgent need.
Our church revitalization efforts stem from our commitment to help leaders respect the past, assess current reality, vision for the future, and re-launch with new momentum.
In determining best practices for a church to carry out its mission, leaders must answer the following question: will more people be reached for Christ by keeping this church open and leading it through a revitalization process or by closing it and investing those resources in another ministry that is bearing Kingdom fruit? The Church of God is committed to help struggling churches through proper evaluation and assistance in the following ways:
Regional conferences to present macro-level concepts, ideas, and biblical truth designed to encourage, equip, and train pastors and leaders.
Online training that facilitates the implementation of the same concepts and ideas on a micro-level in local churches and organizations.
Members of our regional task forces meet one-on-one with pastors and leaders seeking assistance, mentoring, and idea development for their local churches.
