Several GCI congregations are going through a process of church renewal (in some cases involving re-launching). Some of the challenges encountered along the way are addressed in the ChurchLeaders.com article, 9 Reasons Church Revitalization May Be a Serious Faith Challenge.
Knowing that the renewal/revitalization process is necessary and challenging, GCI’s Home Office staff, in partnership with the U.S. Regional Pastors (and the Regional Directors elsewhere), offers support in the form of training and consulting, along with resources posted on the new GCI Resources website. For assistance, contact your Regional Pastor/Director. For information about any of the resources on the new website, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
