Church Revitalization

Associational Emphasis Week

May 22-28 is Associational Emphasis Week. Each day this week the Nashville Baptist Association will be sharing a little bit of information about the various ministries we're involved in throughout our city and how you can pray for the continued expansion of Jesus' church in greater Nashville.

Wednesday: Church Revitalization

The stats are in, and the diagnosis is not great. It's currently estimated that as many as 90% of the churches associating with the Nashville Baptist Association are plateaued or in decline. Many of our churches find themselves in need of assistance, and it's our desire to be used of God to help bring these churches back to vitality. 

The NBA has formed a church revitalization team (CRT) comprised of local pastors and lay leaders who are committed to helping struggling churches experience new life. 

____________

How You Can Pray:

  1. Pray that all of our churches would pray for the declining and at-risk churches throughout our city.
  2. Pray that declining and at-risk churches will join God where He is moving, and be open to needed change.
  3. Pray that God will convict stronger churches of their need to assist their struggling sister churches.
  4. Pray that God will call missionaries to help revitalize and serve struggling churches.
