How to revitalize your church

PLYMOUTH – Do you and others, in the church, want to reignite those past feelings of expectancy again. How do you do that? Is there a pathway where you can rediscover that passion you once had? Is there an answer to, “How will the church influence the surrounding community by bringing people a step closer to the Lord?”

Four Easy Steps

There is some good news and four easy steps that will build a fresh new anticipation in your souls and hearts. All you need is the following:

1. Book for each person

Reclaiming Glory (Updated Version): Revitalizing Dying Churches written by our friend Mark Clifton and published by B&H Books, January 6, 2023, available on Amazon for $14.99. Ask members, and especially the influencers, to read the book within a specific span of time. Conversations and ideas will start to flow in a fresh new way.

2. Videos to watch together

Sign up for access to free accompanying videos that will enrich the book’s contents and your discussions: - watching and interacting with one another after viewing the videos will bring a deeper level of examination.

3. Meeting schedule

Create a high-priority schedule where church leaders and members can meet, while reading sections of the book prior to gathering and for viewing the videos together as a family. Perhaps make this content part of one of the already scheduled gatherings when your church family meets.

4. Set into motion

This final stage is the most rewarding because the congregation will know what needs to be done to reignite that holy expectancy in the church. Convinced by what needs to be done to reclaim God’s glory in the church and community, the ideas formulated after weeks of reading the book, viewing the videos, and discussing the materials will turn into practical plans in which everyone can participate.

Across North America, including Canada, church members and leaders are gathering together to courageously renew the focus of their local congregation for greater impact on the community while reclaiming God’s glory in the church. Join the renewal.

This material and content are so practical that every pastor and church member, working together with a sincere desire to glorify the Lord, will achieve the renewal they crave.

Act now and become the catalyst for church revitalization.
