It’s not the end of the world; it’s the end of the year!
But, if it were the end of the world, how many people would spend eternity with Jesus? 80%? 50%? 10%? How many people did Jesus die for? 100% — no argument there!
What is the issue? Want to blame the media? Schools? Parents? Secularization? According to Scripture, the group primarily responsible to tell people about Jesus is the local church. So, how is the church doing? How is your church doing? How are you doing at reaching people far from God?
The estimates vary, but clearly, between 70% and 90% of the churches in the U.S. are declining. Canada isn’t much better off. One researcher has said that if Protestantism doesn’t stem the decline, it only has 23 Easters left to celebrate!
This is why we at Church Doctor Ministries work tirelessly every day, and sometimes into the night: to help churches become more effective to reach lost people for Jesus Christ —to make disciples. Our new book, Who Broke My Church? 7 Proven Strategies for Renewal and Revival, is based on 15 years of research and results. The first printing sold out in two days! Together, we do make a difference.
We desperately need your generous financial help. Not because we’re “dead broke,” but with ongoing support, we can do so much more. We know what works. We know how to help. We just need more staff to help churches — and that requires finances. We are praying you are also serious about this spiritual crisis and invite you to join us in this very important ministry.
Consider this: Instead of sending one financial gift, what about becoming our partner, with a generous, significant gift every month? Let’s make it truly a happy new year, not just for us, but for Jesus. He gave his life for people to be united to their Creator. Let’s see what we can give, together, to raise the impact of every church.
