Professor of evangelism, pastor and researcher Ed Stetzer provides and excellent, four-part blog on what to do when you feel like your church has flattened out or is in decline.
My heart is to help churches thrive. I know how painful it can be and how helpless it can feel when a church begins to slip. It is crushing when you begin to lose hope for the future of your church. This is what motivated my book Happy Church a couple of years back.
Ed Stetzer's advice is very practical and hopeful. Don't let your church slide helplessly into decline and collapse. The world needs the church. God has blessed the church. The local church is the greatest mission ever conceived and the greatest hope for humanity. Dig in and turn it around.
