Turnaround Churches – part 1

Pitcher-Water I love the stories of "Turnaround Churches." These are churches that have had a difficult time–likely experienced decline, but God has moved and things have turned around. I have been blessed to be part of turnaround churches, and there is nothing more fun. When God turns a church around, you can see his movement in such powerful ways that it brings you to your knees. A lot of churches in America are in need of revival, and so over the next few weeks, I'll offer some reflections on "turnaround churches" rooted in my own experience, but largely in that of others.

Question: Do you know of a church that has turned around? If so, how did it happen? And, how did God bring it about?
