Church Revitalization - Ken Allen
Meet Ken Allen. As church health strategist for the State Board of Missions, he leads church revitalization efforts among churches facing plateaued or declining attendance and growth. He also works in the areas of leadership development, church renewal, coaching, strategic planning and bivocational ministry.
Ken loves meeting with pastors both in group settings or one on one. “There is no substitute for getting out of the office and hearing from pastors and the current condition for a local body of believers,” he said. His passion for pastors runs deep and is part of what he calls his own “pastoral calling” from the Lord.
Ken and his team at the State Board of Missions coordinate a network of church revitalization coaches who walk hand in hand with pastors and churches around the state as they seek to intentionally renew the journey toward health and Kingdom effectiveness. They lead pastors and key leaders through an honest time of assessment and extended prayer before the first tangible action is ever taken. This “unseen work” is a key to true revitalization, Ken says.
