Now after nearly four years and 200 episodes, the podcast has been downloaded over 100,000 times and somehow found by people in 175 countries.

#5 – How to Attract Younger People to Your Church

The Church Revitalization Podcast – Episode 126


The work of The Malphurs Group is mostly with smaller, declining churches, and one of the things common to many of those churches is that the average age of the congregation is getting older. Losing families and students is a red flag indicating that the church may need a strategic refresh to make sure it is focusing on the right things.

#4 – Three Keys to Transformational Worship Services

The Church Revitalization Podcast – Episode 124


Your weekly worship service is for many people the only interaction they will have with your church each week (or even once a month). While the intent of the service is not to be all people need each week, you must still maximize that time.

#3 – 5 Roadblocks to a Healthy Church Board

The Church Revitalization Podcast – Episode 95


Another common issue in declining churches is that the leadership board doesn’t focus on the right things. We find this dysfunction in churches of all sizes, in fact, regardless of whether they are declining or not.

#2 – Why People Don’t Volunteer at Your Church

The Church Revitalization Podcast – Episode 109


We’ve yet to find a church that said, “we have too many volunteers.” You probably need more volunteers at your church too, which is why this episode has remained so popular.

#1 – 5 Reasons You Have an Apathetic Congregation

The Church Revitalization Podcast – Episode 123


It’s especially telling that apathy is a big problem by the fact that the issue of needing more volunteers came in at #2 instead of #1. Apathy is a disease that affects all levels of the church, and it is a tool that Satan employs with great skill.

Thanks for continuing to listen to The Church Revitalization Podcast. We continue to produce it because of the positive feedback we receive from listeners each week and the churches that we get the honor of working with. 

I especially want to thank my friend, co-host, and ministry partner, Scott Ball, whose idea it was to embark on this journey.
