What is there about a dying church that brings glory to God? Mark Clifton's convicting answer is "Nothing."
Because a local church is intended to represent the work of God in a community, when that church "loses it saltiness," not only is God's work pictured as irrelevant in that community, but also dishonor and disrepute may well become associated with God's name as a result.
In Reclaiming Glory, Clifton draws not only upon his own burden for revitalizing dying churches but also upon years of church replanting experience to offer passionate counsel for how to breathe new life into a dying church ... all for the glory of the God who is building his church upon the immovable rock of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Mark Clifton is Lead National Strategist for Revitalization/Replanting at the North American Mission Board. God has used Mark to lead in the planting and replanting of more than a dozen churches across the United States and Canada.
