E&E: Church Revitalization 4 from DBTS.
Dave Doran talks about some faulty options for church revitalization in the 4th talk on the subject.
00:10 It is crucial that church leaders root members’ hearts in the mission statement of the church
1:16 Surface changes don’t necessarily lead to revitalization (new pastor, new programs, change the name or schedules, etc.).
2:16 Waves of new programs can lead to burned out members if they’re not rooted in the church’s mission.
4:25 It is faulty to think of the church as a series of programs.
4:51 You can elevate tradition above the Scriptures in an anti-tradition and a pro-tradition way.
