reTurn – Kit
Restoring Churches to the Heart of God
During times of transition churches often experience an increased openness to change. The reTURN Resource Kit helps leaders take advantage of these strategic opportunities by providing ways to help congregants meet God, grow in authentic relationship with each other, and prepare them to bring the transforming gospel to the larger community.
This kit is built around three stages of church intervention: Diagnosis of the real problems, Surgery to correct the problems, and Recovery to help a church move beyond its problems. This encyclopedic resource contains scores of articles, Bible studies, and reproducible leadership training tools on topics such as:
- family systems
- grief and loss
- the use of power and authority
- conflict resolution
- problem solving
- emotional and spiritual health
- church discipline
- spiritual warfare and prayer
- team building
- working with boards
- lay leadership development
The entire handbook flows from a theology that places Christ and His purposes at the center of genuine church revitalization.
