revitalizing a local church

JD Greear is posting a series on The Resurgence blog about revitalizing a local church.

the introduction:

I’ve been asked to speak on church revitalization at the Advance Conference this year. Six years ago when I was called as a pastor, Homestead Heights was a declining 41-year-old Baptist church. Attendance was down to about 350 people, and more were leaving. Today, the Summit Church consists of four campuses spread across Raleigh-Durham. To God’s glory, this past Easter we had 4400 people in service and saw 160 profess faith in Christ.

he then makes the point that the revitalization must be centered around the Gospel and gives two bad reasons for wanting to revitalize. Go read it; good stuff. I am looking forward to more in the series.
