Return to Me: A Spiritual Process for Church Revitalization with Claude King
“A revived church is the only hope for a dying world.” — Andrew Murray
Claude King writes: “Plateaued, declining, and lukewarm churches need a spiritual revitalization, not just a cosmetic fix. Examine a new tool and biblical process to guide your church to hear and respond to what the Spirit is saying to the church. Help your church Love God, Love Others, Surrender All, Be Transformed, Join God’s Mission, and Glorify God as they return to Him. He’s given an invitation and made a promise: “'Return to Me, and I will Return to you,’ says the Lord of Armies.” (Malachi 3:7).
Claude King will be sharing Monday, October 7, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at Violet Baptist Church (8345 Blacklick-Eastern Rd NW, Pickerington 43147). The $10 registration will cover lunch and a copy of his newest book Return to Me: God’s Invitation and Promise to His Church (if it is available, it is still in the editing phase).
Claude King serves as Discipleship Specialist at LifeWay Christian Resources. He and his wife Reta are natives and current residents of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. After attending school in New Orleans, Claude began work as an editor at the Baptist Sunday School Board in Nashville, Tennessee. He met and began working with Henry Blackaby in 1986. That relationship led to their developing "Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God" which was first released in 1990. The popularity of that book led to opportunities to write others, first with Blackaby and then with a number of other authors. His special contribution to many of those resources has been his style of interactive writing that engages a learner in understanding and applying truths from a message to his or her life. In his current job at LifeWay, he speaks, leads workshops and seminars, and consults with pastors and church leaders to help them and their churches obey Jesus Christ's final command to make disciples of all nations.
