Success Stories:

When Churches are Facing a Turning Point:

  • Discerning a Faithful Future.  Some of our churches are in crisis. Some are not. All of us are in a moment of change.

    This document is a synthesis of some of the best (most faithful and effective) models churches have used to engage this moment in partnership with God.

  • Options for Struggling Congregations. Many churches come to a time in their congregational life where the question of sustainability or viability is raised. At this crucial juncture it is important to look at a wide range of options and to prayerfully discern what direction God is calling the congregation.
