Abstract
The purpose of the project was to develop a church revitalization strategy for Bethel Baptist Church, Trenton, Florida. The project director explored the field of church revitalization in order to determine best-practices. The project director researched the literature and practices of both the Southern Baptist Convention and other denominations to gather information and strategies of revitalization of the church. He then investigated the internal and external demographics of Bethel Baptist Church, Trenton, Florida. The project director selected church members to serve on a church revitalization strategy development team. He chose members who were involved in a wide range of ministries in Bethel Baptist Church. He trained the members of the strategy development team and led them through a chosen strategy development process to create a step-by-step church revitalization strategy. The project director then presented the church revitalization strategy to the church council, deacons, and the entire Bethel Baptist Church for approval.
