Many of us feel a longing in our bones for something fresh. Something alive. A movement.
We can (and must) start new churches.
But what is God doing with existing churches? Not all of them are struggling. Some are growing. Growing churches are not the majority. Studies have been done that out growing churches around a quarter to a third of churches are growing (mostly growing through programs).
What will it take to turn churches in decline? Some will need to die, that’s natural not morbid. Some have life left in them, they just need vision and direction. They need healthy governance. They need the release of members’ gifts for kingdom work.
What is God doing to renew legacy churches and how can we get in board?
