The Revitalized Church plan helps Reveal the current reality of your church. Together, we Recalibrate your values and vision through a series of intentional coaching sessions, all on the journey to Resource you with practical training and the proper tools to get your church on the pathway to missional effectiveness.

Rev. Mark A. Lewis

Assistant Superintendent for Revitalization

Pastor, Communicator and worship leader Mark has been in ministry for 34 years, giving leadership to churches in Canada and the US. Mark’s passion is to see the local church fulfill its utmost potential by training and equipping individuals to live out the great commandment and commission.

Upcoming Events

A unique and relational weekend with staff and key ministry leaders exploring your church’s current culture and understanding the “Unstuck Church” survey results. A revealing assessment process to discover your church’s current reality

  1. We would begin with a personal meeting with your church staff, Board members and Key leadership team to establish an understanding of what a healthy church is and how it should function. Our first meeting would include a brief overview of your church’s current vision, missional priorities, ministry programs, staff (paid personnel and volunteers), and organizational structures (management, admin, finance).
  2. We would establish the most effective assessment tool, which would be used during the catalytic stage of revitalization. Most churches have used the “Un-Stuck Church survey” with the most significant amount of clarity and success.
  3. A subsequent “Mission, Vision, Values” seminar would be arranged by Mark Lewis to create a more detailed and strategic plan for revitalization.
