Strengthening

The Baptist State Convention of Michigan helps churches take their next step to accelerate Gospel movement. Regardless of whether a church has declined, plateaued or is struggling with the next stage of growth, we want to provide the resources and guidance churches need to be healthy and thriving.  

Through BeTheChurch.org we equip and develop new and established churches leaders to become more effective in the church. We also relationally connect established church leaders to develop their influence, and engage with opportunities for growth. And in partnership with the SEND Network, we equip and prepare leaders to multiply and deploy as church planters.

Revitalize Churches

  • 80% of churches are plateaued or declining.

  • 10% of churches are on a trajectory toward death.

  • 900 - 1,000 churches die every year in the Southern Baptist Convention.

 

The numbers are alarming, but there is hope. Churches can experience renewed health and vitality in their ministry.

BeTheChurch.org is an excellent source to develop healthy leaders who strengthen and start churches to advance a Gospel movement!
