Sunday Service: March 22, 2022


African American Church Evangelism Institute

I have begun participating in the institute as part of a 18 month cohort with our pastors in the nation about learning tools to enhance the mission the church to become a conversion church. Partnering with Pastors to Cultivate Conversion Growth 59% of churches across America are either plateauing or declining, 31% of churches are growing preliminary through transfer growth, and only 10% of churches are growing significantly through conversion growth. Through a two year cohort, pastors learn how to revitalize their congregation by helping them to become “conversion communities”, where churched and de-churched people come to faith, grow in their faith, and their congregations become more welcoming places for emerging and young adults. The African American Church Evangelism Institute is a movement of Africa American churches reaching out with the gospel to impact the world – Community by Community!
