Wednesday Words: Brian Croft on Patience and Perseverance in Church Revitalization

If you’re serving in a church revitalization situation, don’t forget these words of of pastor Brian Croft:

“The first principle in pursuing church health is that the process from which it results is a slow one. The vision of where to go must be clear from the beginning, but the implementation of it must take years. If a man needs to lose one hundred pounds, it doesn’t matter how hard he works the first two months, becoming healthy takes time. In my experience, it takes a minimum of five years before a pastor can begin to see real, lasting fruit of his ministry that points to church health.”
