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.
