Anatomy of a Revived Church: Seven Findings of How Congregations Avoided Death
There is hope. God can save your church.
Thom Rainer reveals seven findings of revived churches. Through new research, he figuratively dissects hundreds of churches that were on the path toward death. But they turned around. They revived. They did so in the face of facts and naysayers who told them it could not be done.
Get ready to walk with us through the anatomy of churches that were revived because they chose to live. The choice is as simple as it is profound. Change or die. And now, in God’s power, the choice is yours.
