In north Nashville we have seen three significant church mergers in the recent years.
2007 – GodWhy.com merged with Hendersonville Chapel, and remained GodWhy.com. This has been a very successful merge.
2008 – Sumner Life (which I was the pastor) merged with The Hope Center Fellowship, and became The Church at Indian Lake. Another successful story, especially since they kept me on as pastor – :).
2009 – As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, barely before 2009 ends, Living to Go merged with Victory Assembly, and remained Living to Go.
How has this benefited our area? Churches are stronger. Buildings are being used to their full potential. Two church plants got out of school buildings, and into permanent facilities. Three churches in numerical decline, joined forces with other congregations to strengthen their influence.
Is God showing something through our area? Together we’re better!
