The Life Cycle of a Church: A Scriptural Evaluation from Revelation 2-3

Monday, June 1, 2020 | Guest: Marty Masitto |
Topics: Church Life

Should a church ever consider closing? What does Scripture say about this topic? Listen as Marshall Fant interviews Marty Masitto about Christ's evaluations of the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 and how that can help a church evaluate its own ministry. Their discussion is descriptive and not prescriptive. Marty pastored for many years before beginning a ministry to assist churches. He currently serves as one of GFA's interim pastors.
