Congregations get to a point that outside intervention is necessary for them to transform. They are out of leadership–at least leadership that has a vision of the future rather than the past. They are out of ideas–at least ideas that are empowering of the future. In some cases, they are also out of money.
It could be that one of their greatest assets is their facilities. But they suffer from the false idea that their facilities belong to them rather than God. Release from this dilemma comes only by giving authority over to an outside entity who can compel transformation.
