Critical Issues in Church Revitalization
AbstractWith 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.
