One of the three “Essential Intents” that mandate the ministries of the ABSC is Revitalizing Churches. For this reason, Church Revitalization continues to be a focus of the Church Health Team. In recent weeks, team members led 3 associational Church Revitalization conferences that trained pastors and lay leaders on how to use “Design Guides” to develop ideas for greater ministry impact in issues related to church growth and health. Attendees mentioned ideas related to Sunday School, worship, evangelism, and assimilation as all offering practical help to each ministry. New Design Guides for 2016-17 include how to maximize facility space, safety and security, and biblical stewardship. All 10 ministry Design Guides and many other resources are available with a free registration at www.RevitalizeArkansas.com.
