Assisting Texas Baptist churches in evaluating their church health, engaging their community with the Gospel and growing God’s Kingdom by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Center for Church Health has experts in church growth, worship, discipleship, evangelism, church architecture and biblical resources to guide churches to fulfill the Great Commission.
Church revitalization and church restarting focus on the rebirth of the church. Desiring to give hope to the fledgling church, both processes focus on creating new initiatives that help the church make disciples, engage with their community in fresh and relevant ways, and take the gospel to the nations.
Texas Baptist Church Revitalization Strategy designed to help pastors customize revitalization for their context by equipping them with resources and placing them in cohorts to be trained by a coach and encouraged within a community of pastors.

Church revitalization is highly contextualized. Each church has a unique history, story, and set of circumstances that should be considered when strategizing for growth. Texas Baptists provide church revitalization definitions that can help your church understand its next steps.
