Need for Revitalization
Statistics show that 80% of the churches in the U.S. are either in decline or on a plateau, with the congregation getting older each year. This trend has been going on since the mid 1960’s in all most all denominations with nothing in sight to suggest it will change. At this pace traditional Christianity has become a minor spiritual player in the West which is demonstrated by the United States being declared no longer a Christian nation by our president.
Our Churches like people when they are dying they must be revitalized or they die.
Under the topic “New Life” from the main menu above you will see a drop down list of ten topics starting with “Church Prayer Life”. Dying Church.org has pulled together a number of resources under each of these ten topics. Please take a look and evaluate the information we provide.

On this website not only will you find tools, resources, and information on how to evaluate the condition of your church, but also tools, resources and information on how to bring your church back to a healthy state.
Under “Resources” in the menu above are links/information on a number of good resources. A number of experts advise churches to use an outside advisor/coach to serve as their accountability partner, monitoring, encouraging and giving feedback to them through out the process. Churches, leaders, and members are all creatures of habit and in our sinfulness and stuckness we tend to avoid the tough stuff. Someone to support you as an adviser or Coach is an indispensable part of the hard task of revitalization.
