What does it mean to have a "stuck" church?

A stuck church:

  • is stalled – there is little growth, and little direction.
  • is struggling financially.
  • is no longer engaging the local community in effective ways.
  • is struggling with direction.
  • is usually shrinking.
  • is slowly dying.

The context of ministry changes, and churches get stuck when they aren’t sure how to meet those changes. The good news? Your task is less about determining strategy than it is about discerning God’s direction! We can help!
