This Wednesday, I will be preaching 3 times in Buckhannon, West Virginia at the 7th Day Baptist General Conference. They have asked me to address the issue of church revitalization. Here are the titles of my 3 talks and the questions I hope to address with them:
What is Church Revitalization?
Why do Church Revitalization?
How do you accomplish Church Revitalization?
I ask that you pray for me as I preach on Wednesday. This is a topic that needs to be addressed in many contexts as older churches continue to struggle and decline. My hope is that these pastors and leaders at this conference will gain a fresh vision for their local church and a renewed zeal to see their church flourish.
The local church is called to be a multi-generational, multi-ethnic witness of Jesus Christ to the world until he comes. Pray that each church represented will catch that biblical vision God desires for each of our churches, whether struggling or not.
