Absolutely. We need lots of plants. I've planted 2 churches myself. We need to restore some kingdom dollars in existing, declining or plateaued churches also. Either close them or get them on mission again. God bless your work too pastor.

Great encouragement. I'll keep my eyes open in Chicago. We are working there now. If you're not familiar, check out the work of New Life Chicago. Love how they combine planting with revitalization.

I agree with you completely. We need more energy in this — not just from the pastor side, but from leadership in denominations, associations, seminaries, etc.

And, one initial key in revitalization is to assess the health of the church and willingness to change. I think we often give that process too long. That’s more than I can answer here, but my suspicion is the history of the church can be studied and you can learn a lot. Then the pastor should be able to tell fairly quickly if they really want to change. All things such as location, culture, history, etc should be assessed.

Harder work — just as necessary.
