The landscape of North America is filled with small established churches that struggle to move forward. With God’s help, some of those established churches are experiencing renewed life and growth. SHIFT tells the stories of nine churches that broke free from previous patterns of plateau and decline in order to experience vibrant renewal. These churches encountered common movements - or shifts - which were vital in the renewal process. Written as a resource for pastors and lay leadership teams, SHIFT provides practical information, powerful stories, and insightful questions to help your church SHIFT forward.
