Thom and Kevin look at the fragile nature of churches in revitalization, and how disrupted unity can totally destroy revitalization momentum. Even better, though, they offer some concrete solutions to overcome disunity.

  • Revitalizing churches are already fragile.
  • Resources of time, energy, and emotions are diverted from the Great Commission.
  • Most church battles are over minor issues.
  • Engaging in disunity is contrary to God’s word.
  • Disunity pushes away guests

Suggestions to overcome it:

  • Focus on unity.
  • Take a social media fast.
  • Don’t engage in political battles.
  • Pour your energy into the Great Commission.
