Church Revitalization: A Manifesto

While Pacific Northwest cities frequently rate at the top of charts when it comes to being un-churched, they simultaneously rank exceedingly high in terms of the number of churches per capita. For example, Seattle ranks #2, nationwide, in terms of the number churches per capita, as well as ranking #2 in terms of the percentage of residents who are religiously unaffiliated. Such statistics suggest that the problem in the Pacific Northwest is not a dearth of churches. Rather, the issue seems to be that the churches we do have are dying.
