  • Conversion growth is woefully lacking in most churches.
  • A culture shift is needed to reignite the church in evangelism.
  • The pastor must lead by example and priority.
  • Many church turnarounds have taken place with a few people in the church.
  • Your small groups are a great conduit for evangelistic renewal.
