With 90% of the churches in North America either declining or growing at a rate that is smaller than the growth of their communities, Revive&Revitalize! is an essential tool for small to medium-sized churches that desire to experience a preferred future. Whether your church is facing imminent death without drastic changes or you realize that something is just not quite right, R&R! is an effective and affordable approach to get you heading in the right direction.
Drawing upon more than three decades of ministry experience in Southern Baptist churches and based upon the latest research, Revive&Revitalize! is a biblical approach that will help your church:
- To reflect upon and rejoice over the church's history,
- To remember and return to the church's first love - Jesus,
- To recognize and repent of any attitudes and actions that may have robbed the church of her vitality, and
- To renew and realize a vision and strategy for revitalization.
Revive&Revitalize! will totally change the trajectory of your church. This unique approach to revival and revitalization is built around five key components:
Prayer - Charles Spurgeon noted, "Whenever God determines to do a great work, he first sets his people to pray." The entire Revive&Revitalize! event is bathed in prayer from the preparation to the implementation and at all points in between.
Fellowship Meals - The public part of Revive&Revitalize! kicks off with a church-wide fellowship meal on Wednesday evening. This is an opportunity for informal introductions around the tables. There is another fellowship meal on Thursday at lunch where long-time members have an opportunity to share and celebrate their remembrances of the church's legacy.
Revival Services - This is the meat of Revive&Revitalize! with services beginning on Wednesday night following the fellowship meal. Other revival services take place on Thursday night, Friday night, and conclude on Sunday morning. Each service has a specific focus leading to a commitment service on Sunday morning.
Leadership Training - Based on the specific needs of the church Revive&Revitalize! will include 3-5 one-hour training sessions with key church leaders.
Outreach Event - On Saturday morning the entire church family will have an opportunity to participate in an outreach event with your community. This is a highlight of Revive&Revitalize! and will be designed by your church leadership, based on the needs of your community and the resources of your church.
At the conclusion of Revive&Revitalize! your church will have a renewed love for Jesus and a renewed vision and strategy for loving your community. You will also have a written report that defines specific actions for you to take. Most importantly, your people will be passionately motivated.
