It would be easy to focus on last year as the deadliest year for churches that it was. But, I am more of a person that looks forward to what are the churches in America going to do about turning this tide.
It is a little disheartening that so many churches are focused on a reactionary response with very little focus on prevention. I received a call from a national radio ministry and they were asking "Why isn't anyone talking about prevention?" I told him that it was a great question! One that I often ask. One that I would encourage you to ask of yourself and for your church or ministry.
So, take some time to ask yourselves that same question. What are you doing about prevention.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
