We all know life will be different in the post-quarantine era. The church has fundamentally changed and many pastors are grappling with what the Church will look like in the coming years. Dr. Rainer and Sam Rainer discuss five reasons why the speed of change must accelerate in your church in the post-quarantine era.
- COVID-19 accelerated negative change in your church by three to five years.
- Most churches have moved to an extreme inward focus.
- Your church may decline rapidly or die soon.
- Your pastor may leave.
- Evangelism is all but non-existent in many churches.
