1) Revitalize: Biblical Keys to Helping Your Church Come Alive Again
Church health is measured by more than just numbers, but declining membership is often a key symptom of a church in crisis. The pastor of a dying church doesn’t need to be told it is dying; he needs to find the way forward–and he needs hope.
2) Can These Bones Live: A Practical Guide to Church Revitalization
Churches are closing today at an alarming rate. Pastors are disillusioned, church members are discouraged, and the world has lost interest. Can this disturbing tide be stemmed?
Bill Henard believes that there is hope for the established church – for your church. Some people may have already pronounced the church “dead,” but these dead bones can live. Whether your church is seven years old or one-hundred and seventy, you may be seeing evidences that your church needs vision, direction, and revitalization.
3) A Guide to Church Revitalization
A Biblical guide to help existing churches begin to thrive and flourish for the glory of God.
4) Biblical Church Revitalization: Solutions for Dying & Divided Churches (Practical Shepherding)
There is a unique and special power and testimony in not just a vibrant local church full of life, but an old historic one that had lost its way, was on life support, and into which God saw fit to breathe life once again.
Biblical Church Revitalization calls us to an intentional commitment to church revitalization in the face of dying and divided churches.
5) Church Revitalization from the Inside Out
Is your church suffering, and you’re not sure why? Church planter and professional interim pastor R. D. Stuart encourages church leaders to examine the different ways that they themselves may be exacerbating the problem.
Unfortunately, flawed leadership is a big cause of ailing churches today. The good news is that God gives us the humility and ability to change. With forthright prose and practical examples from his own experiences, Stuart diagnoses different leadership failures and prescribes treatment for them. Along the way, he tackles making tough decisions; striving for unity; taming gossip; cultivating humility; and loving even the hard-to-love sheep. Ultimately, Church Revitalization from the Inside Out will help ministry leaders to strengthen their churches as they grow in faithfulness.
6) Comeback Churches: How 300 Churches Turned Around and Yours Can, TooPrice Disclaimer
Research shows that over time, most churches plateau and then eventually decline. Typically, they start strong and experience periods of growth, then stagnate and lose members.
Since 1991, the North American population has increased by 15 percent while the number of “unchurched” people has increased by 92 percent. Large church houses that were filled in the 1950s and `60s now hold a fraction of their capacity.
7) Overflow: Increase Worship Attendance & Bear More Fruit
Our churches exist in order to glorify God and to share God as revealed in Jesus Christ. Thus, worship is at the center of the congregation’s life.
And improvements in worship tend to spur improvements in the church’s other ministries. When a church’s worship is not vital, what happens to that church? Church leaders and laity know too well the dismal answer to that question.
8) Reclaiming Glory: Revitalizing Dying Churches
Because a local church is intended to represent the work of God in a community, when that church “loses it saltiness,” not only is God’s work pictured as irrelevant in that community, but also dishonor and disrepute may well become associated with God’s name as a result.
In Reclaiming Glory, Clifton draws not only upon his own burden for revitalizing dying churches but also upon years of church replanting experience to offer passionate counsel for how to breathe new life into a dying church . . . all for the glory of the God who is building his church upon the immovable rock of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
9) Who Moved My Pulpit?: Leading Change in the ChurchPrice Disclaimer
Who Moved My Pulpit? may not be the exact question you’re asking. But you’re certainly asking questions about change in the church—where it’s coming from, why it’s happening, and how you’re supposed to hang on and follow God through it—even get out ahead of it so your church is faithfully meeting its timeless calling and serving the new opportunities of this age.
10) Autopsy of a Deceased Church: 12 Ways to Keep Yours Alive
No one wants to see a church die. And yet, far too many churches are dying. For more than twenty-five years, Dr.
Thom Rainer has helped churches grow, reverse the trends of decline, and has autopsied those that have died. From this experience, he has discovered twelve consistent themes among those churches that have died. Yet, it’s not gloom and doom because from those twelve themes, lessons on how to keep your church alive have emerged.
11) There’s Hope for Your Church: First Steps to Restoring Health and Growth
Veteran church consultant calls church leaders back to the hope that God can and does restore churches, equipping them with practical tools to bring about healthy growth.
