Many local churches today feel that something is wrong – that they are missing something. They don’t look the way they did in the past, and they don’t have the energy or resources they used to. They look for easy ways to fix this feeling, but none of them work for very long.

At Church Innovations we know about this “not right, something’s missing” feeling. Thousands of local churches all over the world are feeling it, now even more than 30 years ago when we began to work on ways to respond to what was happening. God is always at work in God’s mission in and for the world. When a church finds their part of that mission, they find calling, purpose, and energy.
