Revitalize Revitalize

Biblical Keys to Helping Your Church Come Alive Again

by Davis, Andrew M.

Church health is measured by more than just numbers, but declining membership is often a key symptom of a church in crisis. Drawing on lessons he's learned in his own journey of leading church transformation, the author, an ordained minister, offers strategic, proven, and biblically grounded advice on how to move forward with hope and expectation. He shows pastors the importance of - keeping Christ's ownership of the church central, - maintaining a humble attitude, - choosing your battles wisely, - empowering godly men to join in leadership, - making prayer a priority, - focusing on the Word, - and much more. This book offers 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. Endorsements "Thousands of churches in the United States are in numerical and spiritual decline. This means the task of church reform and revitalization is one of the church's most urgent needs. For almost two decades, Andy Davis has modeled courage and biblical fidelity in pastoral ministry. He is a pastor who truly knows what it means to see God revitalize a church through the power of his Word. This resource is the culmination of Davis's expansive and biblical wisdom on revitalization. Pastors, no matter how experienced or inexperienced, need to read this book." --R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "Some books contain a fair bit of biblical exposition but tease out rather poorly the implications for church life. Other are larded with practical tips sustained by only the most tenuous links to Scripture. Revitalize avoids both of these sad extremes. Born in the furnace of tough experience, this book is simultaneously encouragement and contrition, biblical exhortation and the voice of hard-earned experience, clarity on the gospel and clarity on the church. If you are a pastor and don't need this book at the moment, buy it anyway--the time will come when you will need it." --D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School "Revitalize is not for the faint of heart. It will put iron in your backbone at the same time that it calls you to bend your knees before the Lord who alone can build his church. Written by a man of courage and faith, Revitalize reflects the realities of pastoral scars while extoling the beauty and power of Christ's wounds to inspire a new generation of pastoral warriors. Don't look for simplistic techniques in these pages, but drink deeply of the pool of Andy Davis's pastoral experience that sparkles with biblical priorities on which Christ builds and rebuilds his church." --Bryan Chapell, pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church
