Mainline churches that have existed for more than 40 years are shrinking and closing faster than any other group of churches in America. Growth is only happening by new church plants that start from scratch and by the few legacy churches that choose to change “how we’ve always done it” and re-create a community serving ministry. Churches that listen to the needs of their community and create programs and ministries to address them will be able to engage in compassion driven dialogue to reveal the loving, compassionate nature of Christ. The Church Pivot project will guide congregations of legacy churches to reimagine what ministries will serve the practical needs of their local communities. Doing so will make each church a vibrant and essential cornerstone of their community.
