Many pastors are leading churches that need revitalization. But a number of those leaders are discouraged that the process is not working or that it’s working minimally. Sam and Thom discuss some reasons why revitalization may not be working in your church and what you can do to change it.

  • The outlook is short-term.
  • The leader makes too many comparisons.
  • Evangelism is not in the revitalization plans
  • Prayer is not in the revitalization plans.
  • The leader becomes discouraged with membership losses.
