If you’re part of a dying church—whether a pastor or church member—you probably know deep down what’s happening but may not want to admit it. Instead of watching a once-vibrant ministry slip away, learn how to help your church thrive as we talk with Dr, Thom Rainer, CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources, and author of Autopsy of a Deceased Church.   Discover the 12 themes found in dying churches and how to reverse them and bring new life to your local congregation.  Thom discusses key areas of too much sentimental focus and declining factors, such as:

  • Preferences
  • Facilities, ideal pastors and worship style
  • Unknown purpose
  • Lack of prayer
  • Greed

The good news is… there is hope!   Rainer helps us discover ways to recognize these deadly symptoms, take auditory actions, and assist our churches towards a more abundant life.   Losing a church is a painful journey that no one wants to go through, but together we can learn how to properly respond and bring resurrection in our churches through the body of Christ.  ‘On this rock I will build My church, and the forces of Hades will not overpower it’ –Matthew 16:18
