WHY ACTIVATE?• 25 BMAA churches have disbanded in the past 3 years.
• Hundreds of BMAA churches report declines in baptisms.
• Every time a local church closes its door, a gospel witness is lost in the community and missionary support is decreased around the world.
WHAT IS ACTIVATE?DiscipleGuide’s Activate church revitalization ministry is an 18-36 month coach-driven process that works with pastors, church leaders, and congregations through three phases: 1)Health, 2) Mission, and 3) Multiplication.
HOW DO CHURCHES BEGIN ACTIVATE?DiscipleGuide offers Activate to BMA churches at no charge. The program is made possible by contributions from churches and individuals. Currently, 37 churches are receiving help through Activate. 30 more churches are on a waiting list to begin in January, but we do not currently have the funds to help them. We need ministry partners to invest in these churches who requested help –before its too late!
