Details: Still looking for the program, book, or sermon series that will turn your church around? What if the answer to revitalizing your church is . . . you? In a time when many pastors are jumping from church to church every few years as they search for the "right fit," churches are suffering from a lack of sustained leadership from pastors with a viable vision for ministry. Packed with field-tested advice, self-diagnostic tools, and surveys, Re:Vision takes you through a process designed to help you re-envision your role, create a culture for positive change, and recruit people to come alongside you as helpers and encouragers.
"Re:Vision serves as both a road map and a reminder for denominations, judicatories, networks, associations, and churches alike who are looking to reverse their decline and set out on a journey to revitalization."-- Thom S. Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources; author of Autopsy of a Deceased Church
"This book is a great addition to the church revitalization conversation. I will be recommending Re:Vision to the pastors in all of my coaching networks."-- Nelson Searcy, lead pastor of The Journey Church; founder of www.ChurchLeaderInsights.com
"A fresh look at what it takes to restore churches from death to life, sickness to health, and decline to growth, based on the most up-to-date study of the characteristics of turnaround pastors. I believe it is destined to be the go-to resource for years to come."-- Gary L. McIntosh, coauthor of What Every Pastor Should Know; professor, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
"Read this book. Then read it again. Then buy ten more for your pastor friends. Re:Vision is an epic work. You'll be so glad you read it."-- Derwin L. Gray, lead pastor of Transformation Church; author of Limitless Life
