Revitalização de Igrejas – Bibliografia Básica

27 minutos | Postado 4 anos atrás



A necessidade de Revitalização de Igreja nunca foi maior na América do Sul! A maioria das nossas igrejas têm uma assistência média de menos de 100 pessoas. Mais de 80% das igrejas têm platô limitante de crescimento ou estão em declínio. Cada semana nós estamos vendo em algum lugar igrejas locais fechando suas portas e não abri-las novamente. Tudo o que deve ser feito na área de revitalização da igreja não pode ser realizado em poucas horas no dia do Senhor! Precisamos tomar providências!
