As a lay person, you have more to do with the church in its present state than you often take credit for. Whether the congregation which you belong is thriving or declining, it is ultimately up to you and your fellow lay members. Pastors are called to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and they can teach, inspire, train, lead, and inspire! But when the rubber meets the road, your church's health is a function of how you and your fellow members relate to one another, to the community in which the church is located, and to how they respond to God's leading within their lives. This main session will look at the initial entry points or on ramps for beginning church revitalization in the church.
