Our goal is to see churches live and thrive. To know how to help churches we must understand and identify the drift which pulls churches towards the grave. In today’s episode of Revitalize and Replant Thom and Mark Clifton will discuss the characteristics of four churches which will soon die.

Four Churches:

  1. The ex-Bible church
  2. The self-serving church
  3. The bad words church
  4. The ex-community church

Resources mentioned in today’s podcast:

    • Revitalize & Replant is sponsored by the North American Mission Board and More than 10% of churches in North America are at risk of closing and the North American Mission Board is committed to reversing this trend by decreasing the death rate of existing churches while simultaneously increasing the birth rate of new churches.
