There's a hole in the bucket!

With church members drifting out the back doors faster than they're coming in the front, North American congregations are facing an alarming decline! Now is the time to take emergency action, plug the hole, and restore our family in Christ!

Faith Reclaimed is packed with practical, straightforward advice for pastors and members on reestablishing relationships with those who have left the church, including guidelines for visitation and specific do's and don'ts. It also provides recommendations for making your church a welcoming, gracious, and nurturing "Velcro" church.

From survey responses that highlight spiritual needs, to specific instruction on relating to those who have slipped through the cracks, this book lays a solid foundation for reaching missing members both outside and inside the church.

In Faith Reclaimed, you will learn:

  • The startling and sobering statistics of church exodus
  • Categories of backsliders and how to identify them
  • The numerous reasons why people leave the church
  • How to retain church members, young and old
  • Methods of reaching both attending and non-attending backsliders
  • How to seek the "lost sheep" with the love and grace of Jesus Christ and bring them back to the fold
  • How to recognize danger signals and avoid becoming a backslider yourself
