Developing a Leadership Engagement Strategy for Smaller Membership Church Pastors of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention
The purpose of this project was to develop a church revitalization leadership engagement strategy for the pastors of Smaller Membership Churches (SMCs) within the Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC). A team a church health practitioners from the ABSC, leaders of local Baptist associations in Arkansas, an pastors of churches within the ABSC, were assembled to aid in the strategy's development. Specifically, the aim of the team was not only to engage SMC pastors in the work of church revitalization but to help retain pastors and churches in the ongoing process of church revitalization. The need for revitalization leadership engagement and retention has been addressed by developing a strategic plan with both relational and resource components to help these pastors navigate the process and stay the course.
