  • Reggie R. Ogea New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

Abstract

With a large percentage of American churches in decline, church revitalization in the 21st Century must be addressed with intentionality and focus.  Five critical issues demand attention:
•    Refocusing Pastoral Leadership and Longevity
•    Reevaluating Change Process
•    Raising Ministry Excellence
•    Reintroducing Strategy Development
•    Redefining Purpose Within Community Context
The Doctor of Ministry degree impacts each of these critical issues.
