Josh King – Church revitalization: Changing the question. Rather than asking, “What needs to change?” what if revitalizers were to ask, “What will it take to bring vitality back to this congregation?”
Casey Lewis – 10 reasons why the church gathers. “As Christians, we should all desire to gather together with one another as often as possible. As motivation, here are ten reasons why gathering regularly with the church is important.”

Micah Fries. Last Sunday, the pastor search team from Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN shared with their church that they have invited Micah to preach in view of a call as their next senior pastor. You can connect with Micah at his website, or on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
