If you sense God wants more for your church than what you are currently experiencing, we want to help.
Seventy percent of churches in America are either plateaued or in decline. Thousands are closing their doors each year. We don’t believe a struggling, discouraged church glorifies God. Leading one of these churches is difficult. Pastors can feel like failures when they are unable to stop its gradual decline. Church leaders can grow frustrated when nothing they attempt makes a lasting difference. It is easy to blame the culture, liberalism, or a growing hostility to Christian values for the church’s problems. Yet there is a contradiction between the message of the Church and the health of the Church. The Church proclaims that God is all-powerful, but its members often worry about finances. The Church preaches that nothing is impossible for God, but then it sells its property and disbands. The Church proclaims Christ can bring victory to any situation, but many of its members are plagued with addictions, divorce, and division. If God is so powerful and wise, why are so many of His churches struggling and declining?
If you sense God wants more for your church than what you are currently experiencing, we want to help. Perhaps you have been doing everything you know to do, but it’s not enough. You need to do what GOD knows you should do. You must seek Him for those answers. We have walked with many pastors and church leaders as they sought God’s heart for their church. They have discovered that God had much He still wanted to do in their church, but first the congregation needed to operate God’s way. We know of churches on the brink of closing their doors that experienced a fresh moving of the Spirit and went on to enjoy their best days as a congregation.
Blackaby Ministries International does not have all the answers, but we know the One who does! We can help pastors and church members seek a fresh word and direction from God. Let us help you experience a fresh encounter with the risen Christ so you are prepared for the great work God wants to do through your church.
