What is common with turn around churches

Thom Rainer interviewed pastors of turnaround churches...churches that have bucked the trend of decline...and this is what he discovered:

  • They led the church to become highly intentional about starting new groups. 
  • They led the church to a culture of inviting people. 
  • They began new member classes. 
  • They began a major community ministry
  • They began to pray for the lost and unchurched by name. 
  • The leaders began to focus less on negative people and circumstances and more on God’s possibilities.
