Since 1994, the VitalChurch team has worked with churches in transition or crisis, leading them to pathways of healing, hope, and revitalization. We have engaged with churches in a variety of denominations, in suburban, rural, and urban environments throughout the United States, and more recently, in Europe.
VitalChurch, a ministry of Church Resource Ministries, was formerly known as reTurn. In 2016, the team changed its name to VitalChurch Ministry, but their mission remains the same—to see churches reconciled and restored to unity, with gifted leadership in place, gospel values embedded, effective governance, and an exciting mission agreed on.
Our ministry flows from a theological understanding of church revitalization and intervention. We work to bring the church back to a place of intimacy with Christ, while at the same time addressing the systemic issues that keep a congregation from flourishing. We are pastors at heart. We care for and resonate with the church, rather than simply coming in as consultants.
VitalChurch is not for every congregation that finds itself in a difficult time. A church must be willing to surrender to God’s purposes and make some tough decision. As such, we only work with church leaders and congregations who are aware of their need for change and are committed to long-term healing, wholeness, and vitality.
Our team is made up of experts in the fields of church diagnostics, intentional interim pastoring, and leadership coaching. We have produced resources and training materials that are used by churches and denominations, and our staff members have been featured speakers at a variety of these ministries’ training conferences.
