Revitalization: Jumpstart

The Jumpstart Program is designed to assist plateaued or declining churches. We provide the church with a qualified new pastor; ongoing training, supervision, and accountability and shepherding through a process of establishing a revitalized vision and strategy to return to fruitful ministry.
