More than 30 pastors and wives gathered with church revitalization consultants at Baratta’s Restaurant in Des Moines Wednesday. “Besides enjoying great food, the agenda was for church leaders to engage in quality conversations with consultants to gain a better understanding of how to move their churches forward and fully engage in the mission of God,” says Clare Jewell, national church planting coordinator for Regular Baptist Churches.

Several pastors and wives commented that this opportunity to have a casual conversation over a meal was extremely helpful. One consultant says, “This was a great format for engaging in meaningful conversations with church leaders.”

Jewell invites prayer for churches in the GARBC that need revitalization. There are many, he says. “Maybe your church could partner with us to help these churches get back on track.” For more information, visit the Lift Up page of the Regular Baptist Builders Club website, or email Jewell directly.
