Corpus Church Revitalization Process

Southern Baptist churches of all sizes are in need of spiritual renewal! Corpus Church Revitalization offers assessments and coaching for SCBI Pastors, and biblical training in church revitalization (entitled ReFocus) that they participate in with their leaders.  The ReFocus process provides Pastors with tools to assess their church and to restore vibrancy, purpose, and health to its ministry.  Participants learn to evaluate the current state of their ministry and their church culture, to consider options for how to position the congregation for maximum impact through a six-step process, to develop a clear vision and strategy for ministry, to create a custom plan for disciple making, to tailor a leadership development process, and to build an effective plan for implementation. 

ReFocus is being used effectively in Southern Baptist churches across the nation to strengthen congregations which are in need of renewal.  SCBI has eight Corpus Pastor Coaches and ReFocus Pathfinders (consultants) who are available now to serve our churches, and we will be training eight more in 2023.
