It is my joy to provide leadership to a network of almost 200 churches in Michigan. I found the Church Revitalization Course offered by Church Answers to be a very helpful resource for equipping me to lead churches through the revitalization process. Each video session is easy to follow and gives good, practical counsel. The resource tools included with the training provide quality and easy to understand evaluation resources for me to share with the individuals involved in a revitalization project. These tools are adaptable to any size church and context.

As a church planter, I wanted to understand the realities facing the established church in my community. Having completed this course, I now realize how important it is for a new church plant to have vibrant and established churches nearby. I now have a burden not only for new church plants but to help older churches grow as well.
Also, as a church planter, I am very familiar with social media promotion and live-streaming. This, combined with the knowledge I gained in the church revitalization course, enabled me to help pastors with older congregations use technology to continue ministry during COVID-19.

Church Revitalization Certification
How you can help churches in transition.
The Church Revitalization Certification is for leaders who want to see struggling churches make a greater gospel impact. Thom and Sam Rainer will guide students through how to help churches move from an inward focus to actively pursuing the Great Commission.
Church Answers makes no promises for the certified revitalizers to find churches who are in need of revitalization. We do have a Find a Certified Consultant page in Church Answers that list graduates of our certification programs.
The video courses are designed for the student to go at his or her own pace. Most students can complete the certification in six months or less. If the student needs time beyond twelve months, he or she can request an extension up to another six months.
