Abstract

This project seeks to introduce a model for revitalizing urban churches that have experienced decline (i.e., membership, money, and morale). Social Justice, Prophetic Preaching, Missional Stewardship, Intergenerational Ministry, and Progressive Pastoral Leadership functions as the central pillars of the project. My research has led me to engage the contributions of theologians, sociologists, social critics, activists, researchers, biblical scholars, homileticians, historians, politicians, church growth experts, political scientists, statisticians, community advocates, journalists, and civil rights leaders to explore the collaborative efforts that can be taken to revive black churches in impoverished communities in Urban America.
