In today’s bonus episode of Revitalize and Replant we want to give you a small taste of the type of content you will receive at Revitalize 2020. Many churches in need of revitalization have many older members with great passion for the gospel who are living in neighborhoods which have drastically changed. How does a church successfully revitalize with this demographic make-up?


  • Celebrate those who are there.
  • Learn the hopes, dreams. and gifts of the current ministries.
  • Unlock the potential of cross-generational congregations.
  • Become very familiar with the demographics of your community.
  • Keep the focus outward.
