Breakout Session: The Unstuck Church
Is your church growing? Diminishing? Is it somewhere in between? In the book, The Unstuck Church: Equipping Churches to Experience Sustained Health, we identified the seven stages of a church’s lifecycle that range from the hopeful and optimistic days of launch, to the stagnating last stages of life support. In this talk, we unpack the lifecycle of a typical church, identify characteristics of each phase, and provide practical next steps a church can take to move towards sustained health.
