Church Strengthening

Study after study reveals that the majority of churches in America are struggling.  Many of them are plateaued or declining.  Some are dying.  That is why the Pike Association diligently seeks to strengthen the churches in our association by providing training and resources to equip pastors and church leaders.  The association’s Church Strengthening Team stands ready to assist you and your church to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.
