Church health is measured by more than just numbers, but declining membership is often a key symptom of a church in crisis. Drawing on lessons he's learned in his own journey of leading church transformation, pastor Andrew Davis offers strategic, proven, and biblically grounded advice on how to move forward with hope and expectation. He shows pastors the importance of

- keeping Christ's ownership of the church central
- maintaining a humble attitude
- choosing your battles wisely
- empowering godly men to join in leadership
- making prayer a priority
- focusing on the Word
- and much more

Revitalize gives pastors the spiritual support they long for and the practical advice they need to turn their churches around and position them for greater health in the future.

"I can't recall ever making this statement about a book: church leaders need this. Nine out of ten churches in North America are in need of some level of significant revitalization. Andy Davis has led true revitalization at one church for two decades. Revitalize will guide church leaders for many years to come. Incredible. Inspiring. Biblical."

Thom S. Rainer, president and CEO, LifeWay Christian Resources

"I have served two churches during my lifetime. One was a church revitalization project, the other was a church plant. I can tell you that revitalization takes every bit as much skill, courage, and prayer as church planting. Andy Davis has spent years in revitalization work, and in this book he makes what he has learned accessible to others. I welcome this solid new contribution to the growing literature on helping churches 'come alive again.'" 

Tim Keller, founding pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

"Thousands of churches in the United States are in numerical and spiritual decline. This means the task of church reform and revitalization is one of the church's most urgent needs. For almost two decades, Andy Davis has modeled courage and biblical fidelity in pastoral ministry. He is a pastor who truly knows what it means to see God revitalize a church through the power of his Word. This resource is the culmination of Davis's expansive and biblical wisdom on revitalization. Pastors, no matter how experienced or inexperienced, need to read this book."

R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
