Overview

Church health is measured by more than just numbers, but declining membership is often a key symptom of a church in crisis. The pastor of a dying church doesn't need to be told it is dying; he needs to find the way forward—and he needs hope.

Author and pastor Andrew Davis offers readers the lessons he's learned in his own journey of leading church transformation, including

- keeping Christ's ownership of the church central
- being humble
- choosing your battles wisely
- empowering godly men to join in leadership
- making prayer a priority
- focusing on the Word
- and more

Church decline is not inevitable. Revitalize gives pastors the spiritual support they long for and the practical advice they need to turn their churches around and position them for greater health in the future.
