Chesapeake Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
Chapter 1 introduces the project, describing the context, purpose, rationale, goals, and methodology. Chapter 2 establishes biblical support for the role of leadership in revitalization by examining the tenure of Moses, the prayerfulness of Nehemiah, and the first Christian church revitalizer, the apostle Paul. Chapter 3 explores the practical elements of this project that were included in the survey of the pastors of the Chesapeake Conference of Seventh-day Adventists: the importance of prayer in church revitalization; the type of personalities that best serve a church in need of revitalization; preaching, the critical communication arm to inspire church members to embrace revitalization; and perseverance, or what is referred to in this project as grit. Chapter 4 outlines the project implementation, utilizing the goals as the boundaries and order by which the project was completed. Chapter 5 is a project evaluation, looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the project, along with my reflections and some expressed desire of emphases of future researchers.
