Insight 083: FaithSoaring Churches Visit Congregations Who Transformed in Response to Crisis
Inspire congregational transformation by visiting other congregations who have successfully engaged in significant changes during the past three to five years. The characteristics and demographics of these congregations should be as like your congregation as feasible, so the comparison of opportunities has credibility.
This is where you could visit congregations who changed in response to a crisis. Examples would be the destruction of its building by a fire, hurricane, or tornado, a moral crisis or death among staff, severe financial reversal, or a major employer leaving the area and with it a percentage of the congregation.
