How To Re-Engage The Church: Expert Interview with Ike Reighard SNEAK PEEK

This is one of the most moving expert interviews to date. Pastor Ike Reighard shares with us how his trek has taken him from large churches he has started all the way to smaller works that have been renewed. This is the story of renewal.

How many times have you seen churches that have lost the steam that was once behind their backs? To lose momentum is not the end of the world for any of us. It is however a significant factor to mix in with what we are facing. God is up to the notion of renewing congregations. We need to have a hopeful approach to things. We are hopefully going to find the way forward in all that is going on.

There are multitudes of churches in America today that have great facilities but lack the essential leadership that is needed to put those facilities to the proper use. Ike  believes we are standing on the edge of some great changes in the American church scene. We need to open our hearts to doing things a little differently however. We are the ones who are able to rearrange the details of the local church such that the old can work with the new. With the interworking of the old with the new we can build churches that are going to be established in full on strength.
