When you begin working in the area of church revitalization and renewal there will be at least three to five things depending on how your church is structured and the polity it works within, that will need to be surrendered by most participants if your church has a chance of revitalization and renewal.
Think 'bout it!
Notice I said a chance! Letting go of two out of five will not cut it. Giving up three but holding on to two might still mean your churches demise! In working with churches I have found that there will be five areas that must be given up if your church is going to move towards a revitalization mindset. The five things that need to be relinquished in most churches when beginning to move towards church revitalization are: Charge, Change, Charter, Church, and Control. We we take a look at each of these in detail over the next two weeks.
