We are taking the success that has been achieved in churches we’ve worked with in the United States and building on it to now reach churches in the UK!
(PRWEB) January 23, 2017
VitalChurch Ministry, an organization dedicated to bringing revitalization to Christian churches in times of transition or crisis, announced recently that they are expanding their organization to reach churches in England and throughout the United Kingdom.
At the end of 2016, VitalChurch leadership began work with a church in the Newcastle area of England, whose pastor had unexpectedly resigned. The interim pastors at VitalChurch are now in the process of helping the church through their time of transition by conducting an analysis of the current state of the church. This is done by means of surveys and one-on-one interviews with key church leaders and volunteers.
When the analysis is complete, the VitalChurch team will prepare and present a report outlining their findings and several specific recommendations for the church. They will also craft a plan of action with the church’s leadership that can be implemented to address each of the report’s findings. Throughout the entire process, VitalChurch will invest in developing leadership in the church to effectively move through the transition time, with an end goal of bringing the church to a place where it is revitalized and in a position to call their next senior pastor.
Director of Operations at VitalChurch Ministry Mike Merwin said, “It is an exciting time at VitalChurch Ministry, as we are taking the success that has been achieved in churches we’ve worked with in the United States and building on it to now reach churches in the UK! VitalChurch’s proven, biblically based, three-step process for church revitalization, is applicable to Christian churches in any part of the world, not just those in the United States. It is our hope that by working with this church in England, it will open up more doors for VitalChurch throughout the UK to help churches who are experiencing times of transition or crisis, and bring our ministry of hope and restoration to those that need it most.”
