New Colony ,

Great podcast also for church revitalization

I have been using this podcast for years and cannot be more grateful for it. Ihave been able to implement many of the ideas from this podcast with my church that is in a revitalization stage and those ideas have been received very well with both the church and the guests who have started coming. If there was a 6th stars I would be clicking it!

BDSullivan ,

Great podcast

Practical and helpful content from guys who are actually doing it.

CASupaman ,

Some good advice but not relevant to a church

So there is some basic information on making churches easier to find online and update their websites. The other advice is about creating a community center rather than a church.
