Church attendance in the United States of America has been declining for many years. There are many explanations for this that local churches really cannot control such as:
- the relocation of jobs out of a community
- population shifts
- church leadership scandals in the news
- many believers and people who call themselves believers who lack the personal desire to witness to non-believers
- the failure of individuals to want to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
However, there are many other reasons for church decline that can be avoided. This book's focus is on resolving problems, recognizing opportunities and avoiding common mistakes when your church actually has control over situations.
Drawing from personal experience in church leadership roles as well as honest discussions with other churchgoers - author Wayne J. Vaughan has written Keeping Your Church Alive: Advice for Pastors, Leaders and Active Members. Focusing on common, preventable issues this book provides answers to challenges that often confront churches.
