The statistics are disheartening.  Less than 15% of churches in North America are growing, and most of them by transfers in from failing churches.  Over half the churches have had stable memberships for at least a decade.  Close to a fifth are declining.  No county in America has seen a net increase in the number of practicing Christians in the past two decades.  Formerly great churches close every day.

This site is a collection of good ideas and inspired writings about how to minister to a struggling congregation, and how to restore a failing one.  Like everything God does, there are no “one-size-fits-all” answers, but I pray there is something here that will help you lead your own congregation, and that you will also contribute to the conversation of what is working in your ekklesia.

    The way of your thinking is very original. There are not many articles of this kind in the internet. I will come back soon again to see your other masterpieces.
