There are some misperceptions and misconceptions about church revitalization that we hear often. Today, we tackle six of them.
Some highlights from today’s episode:
- Revitalization isn’t only about dying churches, it’s about churches who may just need a shift in perspective and focus.
- There are people around every church to be reached, but churches aren’t reaching them.
- Every church should have demographics for their area of ministry.
- A new pastor is not a silver bullet for church growth.
The six misperceptions that we discuss are:
- It’s only about dying churches.
- It’s totally related to demographics.
- Churches that need revitalization have little or no money.
- The primary need is a new pastor.
- It is largely about music and worship style.
- The denomination needs to provide a fix.
