Bringing New Life to a Small Congregation: A Paradigm Shift From Surviving to Thriving
Author
Stephen A Brinkman
Abstract
This project focused on bringing new life to struggling, small congregations and argues that the accelerated decline in small congregations is often due to an identity crisis in a quickly changing world. Through qualitative research, a paradigm emerged that offers a way to recreate a strong sense of identity, while integrating adaptability into the culture and renewing the health of the congregation.
